A short tv spot in the first quarter of Super Bowl 2018, was the first look at this year’s next much anticipated movie from Lucasfilm – Solo: A Star Wars Story. This morning a longer version of the trailer premiered on Good Morning America, ABC’s morning talk show.
Seeing the Millennium Falcon looking all shiny and new was fantastic. Plus our first look at the new character Kira and younger versions of both Lando Calrissian and the scruffy looking nerfherder himself Han Solo. There’s even a moment with Woody Harrelson’s character Beckett (rumored to play Han’s mentor and fellow smuggler).
It was great to get our first look at the film last night, but this full trailer reveals quite a bit more:
We love hearing that iconic music and Chewbacca’s roar always puts us in the mood for more Star Wars!
Here are a few of the things we noticed in the trailer:
- Qi’ra and Han know each other from their younger days where they are seen running from an Imperial Stormtrooper. But it appears she may be the owner of the Millennium Falcon, not Lando.
- A cool feature of the space car are the dice hanging from the rear view mirror. Just like the dice that are hanging from the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon in A New Hope and The Last Jedi.
- Like many young men, they want to join the Imperial Academy and become a pilot. This was Han’s escape from a life on the street.
- We love the bright and shiny new look of the Millennium Falcon, complete with flat radar dish. But we did notice that the front of the ship looks different. The split in the front is filled in with something too. Perhaps it’s carrying some cargo there?
