Solo: A Star Wars Story is coming to theaters May 25 and the advertising and promotional tie-ins are beginning to roll out! The first major promo for Solo is at Denny’s restaurants. My son and I recently dropped by the Denny’s closest to us so we could grab a bite to eat and see their Solo: A Star Wars Story offerings.
Official info from Denny’s!
Assemble the crew and fly to your local Denny’s to collect all 12 exclusive Solo: A Star Wars Story trading cards! A portion of the proceeds will be donated to No Kid Hungry, an organization on a mission to end childhood hunger. Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters May 25.
This placemat shows five of the twelve exclusive Denny’s Solo A Star Wars Story Topps collectible cards. You can spot Qi’Ra, Chewbacca, Han Solo, Lando Calrissian and a Range Trooper in this set. The trading card packs will cost you three bucks for each pack. The card packs include two collectible trading cards, a 20% off Denny’s coupon for your next visit, a $1.00 off Topps Solo merchandise at Target coupon and a 10% off discount for Topps Star Wars Authentics.

These are the two trading cards we received in our pack:
The backs of all the cards combine to form two different Star Wars propaganda posters!
There are a few Star Wars themed menu items to choose from. Click here to see their full Menu. My son Izzy chose the Blaster Fire Burger with bacon cheddar tots because he’s a growing boy and I had a house salad, which unfortunately did not have a cool Star Wars name.
For $3.99 you can purchase one of four Solo: A Star Wars Story cups: each comes with a Millennium Falcon topper and also includes a drink. You can choose from Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca and Qi-Ra.
Izzy went with Root Beer to drink and he picked the Han Solo cup. Izzy says we’re getting Lando next time!
Izzy and I enjoyed our visit to Denny’s. The Solo: A Star Wars Story promo material was cool, the food was good and the service was excellent. I guess it helped that our waiter was a fellow Star Wars fanatic. We ended up chatting about our expectations for Solo and also our excitement for the upcoming Galaxy’s Edge area at Walt Disney World. Our dinner at Denny’s ended up being a great Father and Son adventure and we’re hoping to come back soon and use that 20% off coupon!
See you at the Movies!
