Report: Upcoming Funko Pop! Figures Reveal 'Solo' Character Names

By: Benjamin Hart

We are now less than 80 days away from the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and we're learning more and more about the film every day! Just like with each of the new films, various product and toy leaks have revealed many details about the story and characters of Solo. Today, a new batch of Funko Pop! vinyl figures appears to have given us a few new character names.

May The Funko Be With You on Twitter got their hands on a photo of one of the new Solo Pop! boxes, specifically the back of the L3-37 figure. The box features a listing of several other Pops based on characters from the film, including Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca(with goggles), Qi'Ra, Tobias Beckett, Val, L3-37 and a an Imperial Range Trooper. While all of those have been previously revealed via official channels, there's two other names on the list that we've never heard before; Rio Durant and Enfys Nest:

Rio Durant appears to be the four-armed alien that was glimpsed in the full trailer, and is believed to be voiced by Jon Favreau:

The strange, helmeted figure that is seen multiple times in the teasers is named Enfys Nest:

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th, 2018 and stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Qi'Ra, Woody Harrelson (True Detective) as Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) as L3-37, Thandie Newton (Westworld) as Val, and Paul Bettany (The Avengers) as Dryden Vos.  The film is directed by Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind), with a script by Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) and his son Jon Kasdan (The First Time).
