Starring Alden Ehrenreich as Han, originally played by Harrison Ford, the new trailer takes on his journey as a young smuggler and also looks at the stories of Donald Glover’s Lando Carlissian (originally played by Billy Dee Williams) and Solo’s trusty Wookie, Chewbacca.
Han and Chewbacca is seen first meeting Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) and his encounter with Woody Harrelson’s alter-ego Beckett, who is believed to be a mentor to young Han who guides him on his journey to becoming a space smuggler.
The trailer dishes on how Han Solo shaped his life and how he became a major player in the Star Wars universe. “I’ve been running scams since I was 10 years old,” Solo says in the trailer. “I was kicked out of the flight academy for having a mind of my own.”
Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke also makes her debut in the trailer, although her character still remains a mystery.
Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany and Thandie Newton, and opens in theatres on May 25, 2018.
