Character Bio for Dryden Vos
VOS is a name with a rich heritage in a galaxy far, far away. Quinlan Vos was a maverick Jedi who battled during the final days of the Old Republic. While he was no relation, Dryden Vos shared a similarly rebellious streak, if operating on the opposite point of the moral compass. Dryden Vos was a crime lord operating under the radar of the Empire. If Jabba was slimy and sluggish, Vos was the debonair face of the Galactic Underworld. When Solo first encountered him, he struggled to determine if he was his kind of scum. Han needed to be cautious.

This latest image from Empire Magazine, and what’s great about it is in the background we get our first live action look at Mandalorian Armour apart from Jango and Boba Fetts, although it could be just the armour, as Dryden Vox is a collector of rare items.
Vos is being touted as Solo’s main villain, a facially-scarred “big-shot” criminal overlord who recruits a crew of reprobates for a heist. The character was originally portrayed by Michael K. Williams back when Phil Lord and Chris Miller were directing, but is now portrayed by Bettany in Ron Howard’s film.

They also released a new image of Han Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich hanging off the side of a high-speed train heist on the snow-battered planet of Vandor.
The sequence has been teased in the trailers for the latest non-Skywalker entry in the Star Wars universe, and promises a different kind of action to the usual epic battles and lightsaber duels. “Part of the challenge is to come up with new, inventive kinds of action we haven’t seen in Star Wars,” Solo co-writer Jonathan Kasdan told Empire. “We often referenced Heat and Thief as high-end criminals doing serious jobs that involve guns and big hijackings.”
VANDOR Description via Empire Magazine
THERE ARE SOME planets that would be ideal for a holiday (say, Naboo or Tatooine for the twin-sun seekers) or a city break (Coruscant). There are some planets that you would never visit in a million years – the lava land of Mustafar. Then there is Vandor. The name has currency in the Star Wars universe as a series of planets in the Coruscant system, but Vandor was a whole new level of inhospitable: a harsh, Siberian-esque landscape with winds that make Chicago look a bit blow-y. It was the setting for the daring train heist performed by Solo and Chewie. Bet they wished it
had happened on Endor.
