One of my favorite moments in Solo: A Star Wars Story is when Han first experiences hyperspace. As Lando and L3 make the jump, the camera moves to the side of Han’s face and he’s just elated. We, the audience, are just as excited—we know where this character will go, and how important this moment is to him.
What makes that moment even sweeter is it’s likely genuine. On Solo, the production team (along with Lux Machina) built high-quality screens around the cockpit of the Falcon so that the actors could really feel like they were jumping to hyperspace. When we see actor Alden Ehrenreich react, that’s not all acting.
If you’d like to see what we mean, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the Solo: A Star Wars Story home release, which is out on digital September 14, and Blu-ray and on-demand September 25.
