Han Solo film finally has a trailer, complete with Millennium Falcon and a Wookiee
As predicted by many a hopeful Star Wars fan, this year's Super Bowl LII included the world's first look at the upcoming 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The 45-second "teaser" trailer comes packed with just about everything you need to confirm that this is indeed a film about a younger Han Solo: flashes of a Millennium Falcon; an Imperial base that Solo has somehow infiltrated while making promises of becoming "the best pilot in the galaxy"; and brief-but-clear shots of iconic characters such as Lando Calrissian (played by Donald Glover) and a big, might-be-Chewbacca Wookiee.
We also see glimpses of other actors, like Woody Harrelson's Star Wars universe debut as Tobias Beckett and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Qi'Ra. The trailer also showed some action-filled sequences, including one intriguing shot of a massive supertrain gliding along a snowy track. But this teaser lacks clearer stretches of dialogue or hints at a plot angle. We can only hope that a promised Monday trailer will answer more questions before this film reaches movie theaters on May 28, 2018 (Memorial Day in the United States).
