SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY gets new trailer


Disney and Lucasfilm have released a new trailer for their upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, giving us fresh info about the next installment of the Star Wars franchise. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see Donald Glover and Woody Harrelson, alongside, of course, Emilia Clarke and Alden Ehrenreich.

The clip opens with Qi’Ra (Clarke) asking Han Solo (Ehrenreich) if he’s after revenge, money, or something else. Soon after, Han is recruited for a job: telling Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett, that he’s a driver and a flyer and that he’s waited a long time for “a shot like this.” The film feels like a heist story: we see Han, Qi’Ra, and Tobias recruit Lando Calrissian, played by Glover.

“I heard a story about you, I was wondering if it’s true,” says Solo.

“Everything you’ve heard about me is true”, Lando replies.

Next, Beckett tells Han that once he joins, he’s part of this life forever. There’s also a lot of high-flying action as the team trades shots with Imperial troopers and fend off TIE fighters in the Millennium Falcon.

"The film very publicly went through production troubles as directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie) left over creative differences with three weeks left of filming to go. Lucasfilm subsequently tapped Ron Howard to take over as director, working from the screenplay originated by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. Solo marks Lucasfilm’s second effort at what were originally conceived as “anthology”-type stories—spinoffs that don’t take place in the episodic chronology, but tell other stories set within the Star Wars universe. The first was Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which was a ground-level tale of the team that stole the plans for the Death Star in the events leading up to A New Hope. Solo‘s chronology predates that film but, obviously, takes place after the events of the prequels." (Collider)

The film hits theaters May 25. Check out the new trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a seres of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
