By: Benjamin Hart

Solo: A Star Wars Story is now finally out on home video! To celebrate the occasion, ABC News has released a short featurette focusing on one of the biggest elements in Solo's most anticipated action set piece: the Kessel Run.

Clayton Sandell from ABC visited Lucasfilm headquarters in San Francisco and spoke with various Industrial Light and Magic crew members, including visual effects supervisor Rob Bredow. Sandell specifically inquired about the summa-verminoth, the gigantic, tentacled space monster that attacks the Millennium Falcon during the Kessel Run sequence. They go into detail, revealing that the idea behind the inclusion of the creature came from director Ron Howard. They also touch on the beast's very graphic death inside the Maw. You can watch the full video below:
