At long last, Ron Howard‘s Solo: A Star Wars Story is starting to come together, as revealed by the recently released new trailer and hi-res images that accompanied it. And it arrived just in the nick of time since all we’ve had since the previously released teaser trailer was this Denny’s tie-in commercial… Oh and the Disney/Lucasfilm anthology story is slated to premiere at Cannes on May 15th before its wide release on May 25th, so it’s probably a safe bet that we’ll start seeing more from Han Solo’s story in the run-up.
For now, however, the new trailer has provided us with more insight to the film’s actual plot since the official synopsis is a bit thin. We’ve revisited the trailer on a frame-by-frame basis to snag looks at new and returning characters, the exotic locales they’re visiting in this film, and to get a handle on all the action-packed shenanigans they’re about to get up to. (Thanks to IGN for a little extra insight on that front.)
Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Thandie Newton, and Paul Bettany, Solo: A Star Wars Story arrives in just over a month. In the meantime, here’s everything we know so far.
Here’s the official synopsis for Solo: A Star Wars Story:
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.
