It seems like we’ve been waiting for an interminable amount of time for footage of director Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story to grace our eyeholes. Between changes in directors that eventually led Howard to take the helm to the better chunk of original directors’ Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s film being re-shot by Howard, many fans wondered if the movie would ever see the light of day.
Our wait, however, is over. During tonight’s Super Bowl, Disney dropped the first teaser trailer for Solo, less than a minute’s worth of footage to whet our appetites ahead of the first full trailer’s reveal on Good Morning America tomorrow.
Alden Ehrenreich looks spot-on like a young Han Solo, cock-sure and rough-and-tumble. Donald Glover looks badass, standing regal in furs(!) as a young Lando Calrissian. And to see Chewie growl and place his hand on a young Han’s shoulder? Goosebumps, y’all.
Solo: A Star Wars Story, directed by Ron Howard and starring Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany, drops on Memorial Day.
Check out the full trailer on Good Morning America tomorrow on ABC.
