Watch the First Full-Length Trailer for ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’
“I’ve been running scams on the streets since I was 10.”
The trailer reveals newcomer Alden Ehrenreich taking on the role of a young Han Solo, exclusively portrayed by Harrison Ford until now.
“I’ve been running scams on the streets since I was 10,” the new Solo begins. “I 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.”
Check out the shorter Super Bowl teaser, here:
The movie is an origin story, revealing the unknown characters that shaped the Han Solo we know and love. Woody Harrelson joins the cast as his mentor Beckett, and Emilia Clarke is introduced as love interest/ride or die Qi’ra.
Filming on Solo was troubled. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy fired directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord midway through shooting due to “differing creative visions,” and Ron Howard was brought on for extensive reshoots.
Howard’s unveiling of the name on Twitter was also met with some jeering from fans.
