Don’t freak out, the new trailer is here
We’ve got a good feeling about this — or at least, Han Solo does.
You may have forgotten that Solo: A Star Wars Story is out next month, since Disney and Lucasfilm haven’t done all that much marketing for the spin-off film since its first trailer dropped after the Super Bowl in February.
But that changed Sunday, when a new Solo trailer arrived during American Idol on Disney-owned ABC.
The trailer focuses on the basic plot of the film — which is not just a “young Han Solo” prequel, but a heist movie, evidently. We see such moments as Han (Alden Ehrenreich)’s first meeting with Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), and his discovery that Chewbacca is a 190-year-old Wookiee who can pilot a spaceship just fine, thank you very much.
Solo hits theaters May 25, 2018, also known as Star Wars‘ 41st birthday.
