“Solo: A Star Wars Story” will reportedly show the Empire in a new light. The last time fans saw the Empire was in “Rogue One,” and now, the upcoming movie will show new aspects to it.

The Empire has always been portrayed as a tyrannical force that rules the galaxy with an iron fist. However, according to a report by Mike Zeroh (see below), the upcoming movie will show a lighter side to it.

“Solo” is set 10 years before the events of “A New Hope.” The Empire apparently was quite different at that time, with the trailer teasing so with the attitude and demeanour of the officer recruiting Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich).

Mike believes the movie will show Han working for the Empire as a pilot. He will, however, eventually rebel. There could be a lot of comedy and lighter moments in the first act.

Some of the Lego leaks supposedly show Han in Imperial uniforms. Will viewers see the swashbuckling hero pilot a TIE fighter?

While the movie is expected to show the lighter side of the Empire, there's still the main villain. A criminal group called Cloud Riders will be the main antagonist. Then there are the droid crime and Pyke syndicates from the “Clone Wars” series.

The next trailer for the upcoming film is expected to be released before “Avengers: Infinity War.” The video is expected to tease new footage, which will give a better idea of the plot and the action scenes.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” will be released on May 24 in Australia. The film is directed by Ron Howard.
