Lucasfilm has released a brand new trailer for Ron Howard's upcoming Star Wars spin-off film, Solo: A Star Wars Story and hells yeah! Even though we've reported and talked endlessly on this Han Solo origin film from its first production attempts with Phil Lord and Chris Miller to the almost complete re-shooting of the film by Ron Howard.
Now it appears that this new Star Wars film starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo and Donald Glover as a young Lando has truly revealed itself. I must say, that it looks really, really cool. While Star Wars has always stemmed from classic western films. This is the first one to really go for a true "western", with the new trailer tipping its hand to the classic Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns.
Check out the new trailer below.
And here's a cool new poster as well.
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
Directed by Ron Howard from a script written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany and Ian Kenny.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released theaters May 25, 2018.
