Yet that’s what’s happening in the forthcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, with Alden Ehrenreich stepping into big shoes as the iconic rogue smuggler.

Those who missed out on purchasing the phone when it was first available, collectively used a Jedi mind trick to get OnePlus to return to the Indian marketplace with the 5T Star Wars edition. …
