See Alden Ehrenreich as Han in 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Big Game Spot
"So you want to make a difference?" "Trust me, you're going to love it." Disney + Lucasfilm have aired an official Super Bowl TV spot to tease the new Solo: A Star Wars Story movie, directed by Ron Howard, and starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo. This is finally our first look at any footage from this movie, which hits theaters in May, since we've all been waiting to see something for so long. The full cast includes Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian (that jacket!!), plus Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Thandie Newton, Warwick Davis (of course), Clint Howard, and Joonas Suotamo returning as Chewbacca. Damn, does this look good! Solo! I'm crazy hyped already. The full trailer can now be seen here, so check that out for even more footage. Give this spot a shot and let us know your thoughts.
Here's the first Super Bowl TV spot for Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story, direct 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. Disney + Lucasfilm will release Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters everywhere starting May 25th, 2018 this summer. First impression? You excited?

Meh. A story I never needed a movie about (much like Rogue One). But I’m open minded. Wouldn’t mind a Star Wars that everyone can enjoy again.

Trolling much? R1 was excellent and considering we all knew what happened it was well done.

Nope not trolling at all. It's called an opinion, and I made it clear I'm going in with an open mind. Also, I enjoyed some of rogue one, but by no means was it a great movie. Visually it was at times, but it's the most boring Star Wars movie to date up until the last act. When your protagonist has no agency, your movie is going to have issues.

Hello, life-long Star Wars fan here. It's weird to be so uninterested in a new SW film. Thanks Disney.

Hello, life-long Star Wars fan here. I'm REALLY excited for this new Star Wars movie. More for Donald Glover as Lando than for whoever the guy that is playing Han. Glover better get a ton of screen time because he is talented as a mug.

I hope it's good and we're both pleased,

Powerful Donald Glover.

Oh man! I'm excited.

Cautiously optimistic. With a release date in about three months , we NOW get a trailer?!? And with the previous directors getting fired and Ron Howard being brought on to replace, I dodon have high hopes for this.

Looks fresh; Not the pretentious 'the epic saga continues' vibes here that we get in the promos for the main SW episodes (well, a little bit with the name/title drop at the end, but I can stomach that).

Hush...Disney might just fix that.

I'm crying at how amazing Donald Glover looks. Even if he wasn't Lando and just some random that's a badass look. I'm happy for this dude success, hope the film overall is good.

Mac A Roni!

Well that was a good trailer until the Chewbacca growl at the end where he puts his hand on Han's shoulder. That just ruined it. BUT that trailer style and the scenes they released... AWESOME! This is how trailers are meant to be... not the other one they just released. That one looks terrible. Just give people a small taste.

I forgot to say earlier that I like the fact good old Woody is in there. Now, I'm not worried ...
