WATCH: New Han Solo set video features Star Wars fan favourites… Biker Scouts

June 4th, 2017 by Marc Comments

It looks like one of the coolest classic Stormtroopers are back for the Han Solo movie.

Yes, the video below from the set of the no filming movie shows a Biker Scout riding a new vehicle… though we doubt it’s a speeder bike given its bulk.

The Biker Scouts were last seen on Endor’s Forest Moon in Return of the Jedi and the design of this particular type of Emperial trooper has long been a favourite in the FTN offices and with fans across the galaxy.

It’ll be nice to see Han (Alden Ehrenreich) tussle with them again. For the first time when the movie opens in just under a year.

The Han SoloMovie is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller with a screenplay written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. It stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Michael K. Williams and Ian Kenny.

It will arrive on May 25th, 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
