Today is May 4th and as we all know it is Star Wars Day! May the “Fourth” Be With You! FullTillt Rangers is celebrating by bringing you this exclusive interview with the star of the upcoming new Star Wars movie “The Rangers Awaken”, Hank Solo.

FT: So tell us Hank, what does today mean to you?

HS: Today is a great day, especially as we battle the Evil Republic in Washington D.C. at the Verizon Center. The Rangers Rebellion and I will look to continue beating Darth Ovi and the rest of his evil crew. Of course, marching into the Verizon Center is not what I had in mind.

FT: What is it about Darth Ovi that we should worry about?

HS: Well, he does all that wacky magic stuff like being able to get back on the ice after a 15 second rest and splitting defensemen with his mind tricks and elevating pucks from his knees. Still, hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

FT: Everyone is waiting for the new Star Wars movie to come out. What can you tell us?

HS: Well we hope it will be awesome. We’ve made a few movies as you know and the last Star Wars films were ok. This time we are going for all the stuff that make Star Wars films work but we’re looking to change the ending.

FT: Ok, we have to ask…is Chris Kreider a Wookie?

HS: Hmmm, I don’t know if I’m at liberty to say? But if it walks like a Wookie and acts like a Wookie, well….you get the idea. 

FT: So we will finish with this. Do you think the Rangers can defeat Darth Ovi and his horde?

HS: Kid, I’ve flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I’ve seen a lot of strange stuff, but I’ve never seen anything to make me believe that there’s one all-powerful Force controlling everything. ‘Cause no mystical energy field controls my destiny. It’s all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense. We’ll take ’em down. Remember, I shot first.

The interview concluded with Hank giving me a wink and walking away.
