Young Han dreams of someday soaring into space at the
helm of his own starship and leaving his home, the
gritty industrial planet Corellia, far behind. But as
long as he’s trapped in a life of poverty and crime—and
under the thumb of the sinister Lady Proxima and her
brutal street gang—reaching the distant stars seems
impossible. When Han tries to escape with his girlfriend
and partner-in-crime, Qi’ra, he makes it out—but she
doesn’t. Desperate for a way to find his own offworld
vessel and free her, Han enlists in the Imperial
Navy—the last place for a rebellious loner who doesn’t
play well with others.
When the Empire clips his
wings, Han goes rogue and plunges into the shady world
of smugglers, gamblers, and con artists. There he meets
the charming and cunning high roller Lando Calrissian,
makes an unlikely friend in a cantankerous Wookiee
called Chewbacca, and first lays eyes on the Millennium
Falcon. To snag his piece of the outlaw pie, Han joins a
crew of pirates to pull off a risky heist. The stakes
are high, the danger is great, and the odds are slim.
But never tell Han Solo the odds.
