The new trailer gives fans the best look yet at the upcoming Han Solo spin-off movie, opened with Qi’Ra (Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke) asking Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich): “You’re after something. Is it revenge? Money? Or something else?”
We then see Han being recruited for a job by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), to which Han replies: “I’m a driver, and I’m a flyer. I waited a long time for a shot like this.”
Han, Qi’Ra and Tobias then enlist Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) – the best smuggler around. “I heard a story about you, I was wondering if it’s true,” says Han.
“Everything you’ve heard about me is true,” Lando responds.
We’ve heard a lot about the upcoming Solo, from its mid-production director swap to the bizarre mix of movies it was inspired by, but star Donald Glover has promised that it’s more “fun” than other Star Wars movies, and we’re going to hold him to that.
The latest Star Wars Story anthology movie fills in the gaps of how Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) became the greatest smuggler in the galaxy.
Ron Howard’s film will also reveal how Han first met his best friend Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) as their paths cross with intergalactic conman Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). The extended cast includes Woody Harrelson as Han’s mentor Tobias Beckett, as well as Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
And, with Solo: A Star Wars Story set to premiere at Cannes Film Festival on May 15, there’s not too much long until we get to see it for ourselves.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released on May 24 in the UK and in US cinemas on May 25.
