Trailer of "Solo: a Star Wars Story" is out!

Tuesday, 10 Apr, 2018

Set in Han Solo's early life, the new trailer gives film-goers their best look so far at the second Star Wars spin-off film, which follows on from 2016's Rogue One.

For now, however, the new trailer has provided us with more insight to the film's actual plot since the official synopsis is a bit thin.

Like Han, we now have a really good feeling about this.

Gambling, scraps, races, shoot-outs, heists and the Millenium "f**king" Falcon are all on offer here.

It opens with a voice-over from Emilia Clarke, who plays Qi'Ra, asking Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo: "You're after something".

The next Star Wars stand-alone movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, is released in around five weeks as Lucasfilm reclaim the traditional May release date.

Win an unreal holiday to Italy right here.

The new trailer also answers the question of Chewbacca's age.

This tip seems to directly hint at the moment in The Empire Strikes Back when Han learns that Lando has sold him out to Darth Vader on Cloud City. The video shows the movie returning the franchise to the old Western look and feel, which is what the original trilogy of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is famous for.

Following its debut at the Cannes Film Festival next month, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" lands in theaters here on May 25. Qi'ra and Han grew up together, and it's clear there's some attraction between the two, but it's unclear how far it will go, particularly since since Han and Leia are the only Star Wars couple fans are willing to ship.

We then get a glimpse of what is likely the first meeting of Solo and Calrissian. We know from past films he won it off Lando in some kind of wager or game. Or will it be the first live-action Star Wars movie to outright underperform?

At the heart of "Solo" is Han Solo, though, and we finally got some lines of dialogue from Alden Ehrenreich that hit the mark and make us think of Harrison Ford's iconic portrayal.
