After weeks of waiting, Disney has finally released its first official look at its upcoming Star Wars film, Solo: A Star Wars Story with a brief teaser during this evening’s Super Bowl.
The teaser opens with an Imperial recruiting officer asking a recruit what branch he’s interested in joining, to which he’s told, “I’m going to be a pilot, the best in the galaxy.” Along the way, we get some glimpses of a new-looking Millennium Falcon, Woody Harrelson’s Beckett, Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and a brief glimpse of the film’s titular character, played by Alden Ehrenreich, all accompanied by some all-too-quick action scenes involving fighters, speeders, and what look like trains.
Fans have been desperately waiting for the teaser in the weeks since Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit theaters in December. The wait hasn’t helped take away concerns from fans after the film’s rocky production last year, which saw its directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller fired midway through shooting. They were replaced by Apollo 13 director Ron Howard, who reportedly reshot a considerable amount of the film.
We won’t have to wait too much longer to see a proper trailer for the film: the official Star Wars Twitter account confirmed that it’s coming tomorrow on ABC’s Good Morning America.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th.
