The full trailer for 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' is here and looks great
05 February 2018

The Han Solo original film Solo: A Star Wars Story has had a pretty troubled production, with the original directing team being fired mid-shoot, rumours of an acting coach having to be brought in to improve Alden Ehrenreich’s performance, and a worrying lack of footage coming out for a release less than four months away.

Now all those fears can be put to rest, because a full trailer’s here and looks pretty awesome. Take a look:

Looks fun, right? A few immediate thoughts:

  • Donald Glover will be the best thing in it because he’s Donald Glover
  • The one annoying thing in the trailer is the way they’ve inserted too-long gaps into Emilia Clarke’s line
  • Bet you £5 Woody Harrelson dies
  • Alden Ehrenreich doesn’t sound like Harrison Ford at all, but maybe that’s better, and it would be distracting if he was doing an impression
  • The space monster thing is too big, isn’t it
  • Like, that couldn’t exist
  • But then, it’s Star Wars, none of it would/could
  • It’s set a long time ago, innit, it could be a dinosaur
  • No, probably not
  • There’s no sign of Phoebe Waller-Bridge or Paul Bettany, unless they’re that droid, that little alien pilot or that big space monster
  • There’s a droid in the Star Wars universe called Bollux. It would be ace if it was in the film and got an action figure
  • If you stole someone’s action figure they’d shout “Get your hands off my Bollux”
  • That would be funny
  • But anyway, yeah, this looks loads of fun

Solo: A Star Wars Story is directed by Ron Howard, starring Alden Ehrenreich as Han and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian alongside Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany. 

It’s out on May 25th, and here’s the additional teaser which aired during the Super Bowl, just so you get maximum Han for your money:

They’ve also put out these fantastic character posters, which look brilliant but give absolutely nothing away:
