Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer

"Everything you've heard about me, is true." Disney + Lucasfilm have debuted the second official trailer for Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story movie, starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo. It was announced last week that Solo will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May out-of-competition, before hitting theaters worldwide. This is technically the full trailer following the first teaser and it shows quite a bit. The cast includes Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian (he's going to be the best part), plus Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Thandie Newton, Warwick Davis (of course), Clint Howard, and Joonas Suotamo returning as Chewbacca. Okay, I have to say, this looks awesome. Maybe it's going to be incredible after all? I love how all-out action heavy this movie looks, I mean damn! Have fun.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story, from YouTube:

During an adventure into a dark criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his future copilot Chewbacca and encounters Lando years before joining the Rebellion. Solo: A Star Wars Story is directed by Oscar-winning American actor-turned-filmmaker Ron Howard, of the films Grand Theft Auto, Splash, Cocoon, Willow, Backdraft, The Paper, Apollo 13, Ransom, Edtv, A Beautiful Mind, The Missing, Cinderella Man, The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon, Angels & Demons, The Dilemma, Rush, In the Heart of the Sea, and Inferno previously. It was originally directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller, before they were replaced by Howard. The screenplay is by Jon Kasdan and Lawrence Kasdan. This premieres at the Cannes Film Festival. Disney will then open Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters worldwide starting May 25th next month. You in?

Very unnecessary.

Gee, I wonder if Chewie will survive that life-threatening train sequence. How thrilling!

grimjob on Apr 8, 2018


Actually he dies. Han Solo gets another dog and names him Chewie as a tribute to the original Chewie.... Did I say dog? I meant Wookie.

Spoilers man!!

grimjob on Apr 9, 2018


You know that train sequence seems kinda familiar...*cough* Captain America: First Avenger *cough*..... But this time it's totally different because Chewie fell on the INSIDE of the track!

You should take something for that cough my friend. You know, it's weird, but I'm suddenly reminded of the train sequence from the first Captain America movie. Just popped in my head...

Looks fun. I didn't think I'd go see it, initially, but I'm changing my mind. Why not?

RPD on Apr 8, 2018


Oh man. First bomb? Nah, but they should seriously limit these to once a year treats.

DAVIDPD on Apr 9, 2018


There might be some hope...

It's been a mess from the start. Will mark the beginning of the end.

The worst part of this movie is Han Solo

TheOct8pus on Apr 9, 2018


Don't call him that! He hasn't earned that name! It's "That young guy doing his best Han Solo impression" guy...

I'm really beginning to believe Star Wars fans are a bunch of damn complaint after the other! Just go back and watch the original trilogy, and read the "Extended" whatevers, because nothing pleases you people...

I'm entitled to my opinion because I'm a life long fan, dammit! MY OPINION IS EVERYTHING AND THE FILMMAKERS NEED TO CATER TO MY NEEDS ABOVE EVERYONE ELSES! /s

THE_RAW_ on Apr 9, 2018


No, they don't. if we don't like the movies they make, we can make our own. Honestly, we deal with what they throw at us and hope those will be ok. Nothing more ...

Seems to utilize classic Star Wars music and iconic Star Wars characters to build excitement to cover up what seems like a story mess.

chuckpenz on Apr 9, 2018


You just described the entirety of the new star wars films.

4chan on Apr 9, 2018


Well said. The makers are happy to say 'let the past die' to sack off all that old detritus yet somehow very keen to keep hold of the iconic Star Wars music and themes. Why aren't they as dismissive of them as they are of their original audience?

Payne by name on Apr 9, 2018


This looks good but so did Last Jedi lol. But no in all honesty I'm liking what I'm seeing from this troubled production x I'm very hopeful that both Kasdans(!!) delivered on a damn good story for Solo.

Brandon Cole on Apr 9, 2018


May the force be with this one?

THE_RAW_ on Apr 9, 2018


Last Jedi was pretty impressive. I didn't anticipate the courage to do what was done in that movie and ended up surprised ...

shiboleth on Apr 9, 2018


A lot of negativity surrounds this film, not even giving it a chance. I think it will be another surprise hit akin to Rogue One, a fun adventure for the family without the hype or build up associated with the Episode films of the Saga. Alden will do just fine.

Lewis on Apr 9, 2018


If it's anything like Rogue One, I will be thoroughly impressed. That movie was awesome!

THE_RAW_ on Apr 9, 2018


I can understand that point of view. I think maybe LFL are playing it safe still with the standalone films, so this is fan-service, even though controversial in using everyones favourite smuggler. TLJ showed a lot of progression and look how its attracted such hate. I have a few minor issues, but on the whole its a great addition. We'll get more progression and risks with the future trilogies planned.

Lewis on Apr 10, 2018


From the stories I heard, I don't want to like this. looks fun and I'm intrigued. HOWEVER, I still don't buy Alden Ehrenreich as Solo. Sometimes his lines seem okay, but other's like a bad impression or just plain off. I think this is going to be as divisive as Last Jedi.

THE_RAW_ on Apr 9, 2018


I'm mildly satisfied. Mostly by the fact that this could've looked worse ...

shiboleth on Apr 9, 2018


I disliked TLJ, but this looks amazing. Great cast and looks fun. Emilia Clarke in Star Wars already makes me want to relinquish my money. Harrison Ford had nothing but contempt for Han Solo. Give the new guy a chance!

May the force be with this one?

Pure Hollywood entertainment, I'm in!
