Last night, during AMERICAN IDOL, Lucasfilm dropped the new trailer for SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY!! And it did not disappoint! The film takes place years before the events of STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE, and Alden Ehrenreich plays everyone’s favorite smuggler turned eventual hero, this time around.
Watch the trailer below!
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 series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
In addition to Ehrenreich, the film also features Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Paul Bettany.
And seriously. How perfect is Donald Glover as Lando? Lucasfilm hit the mark with that casting! And Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos, a scarred gangster, looks mighty creepy! I’m sure he will play a great villain in the film.
Check out even more images from the trailer!
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY releases in U.S. theatres on May 25, 2018.
