Never tell me the odds!Ron Howard’s highly anticipated installment in the Star Wars saga, Solo: A Star Wars Story, has been nearly completely non-existent in terms of public information. Howard has tweeted a few pictures since he took over the project late last Summer, but fans have been itching to get any sort of photos or footage. Tonight during the Superbowl, Lucasfilm debuted a TV Spot for the film. Have a look here:
The spot has over 69,000 views as of the writing of this article. It shows off Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, who seems to be trying to join the Imperial Academy. We got a glimpse of an absolutely sterling Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra, and Woody Harrelson as Solo’s mentor named “Beckett.” Of course, we got to see Solo’s best pal Chewbacca too. Additionally, there’s a lot of scenery that points to the classic trilogy era that it’s in, from Stormtroopers to Tie Fighters. Perhaps the most important takeaway is not that we are getting a full trailer tomorrow, but that the movie is still coming out May 25 (the 41st anniversary of A New Hope). Many had speculated that the film would get delayed, but apparently it has somehow stayed on track despite all of last Summer’s setbacks.
The Geekiverse is going to have extensive coverage of Solo: A Star Wars Story this week. We’ll have the trailer for you tomorrow on our home page, and this week’s episode of Walking Carpet will be dedicated to our reaction. So keep it locked here for all of the latest!
