“Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which took audiences on some of Han Solo’s early adventures, arrives on digital, Blu-ray, and DVD in September.

Starring Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, the latest “Star Wars” story explored Han’s first encounters with his future friend and co-pilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). The movie also introduced audiences to Han’s friend and fellow thief Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) and the career criminal Beckett (Woody Harrelson).

Included with the home release, bonus content takes viewers behind the scenes for discussions with the cast, director Ron Howard, and screenwriters Jonathan and Lawrence Kasdan; a close-up look at the original Millennium Falcon; a feature on Chewie’s long-lasting friendship with Han; eight never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes, and more.
