Disney and Lucasfilm released a teaser trailer for the Han Solo spinoff, “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” this morning.
The official teaser follows a 40-second spot that aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The film centers on the galaxy’s favorite smuggler, Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich), and his trusty Wookie companion, Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), during some of their early adventures, including meeting another fan favorite, Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). Billy Dee Williams first played Calrissian in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.”
Ehrenreich steps into the iconic role made famous by Harrison Ford in earlier “Star Wars” movies.
In the voiceover of the trailer, Solo says he’s been running scams since he was 10 years old and was kicked out of the flight academy for “having a mind of my own.” “I’m gonna be a pilot — the best in the galaxy,” he adds.
