Lucasfilm and Disney shared a new featurette trailer for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” that features the film’s stars and director teasing what to expect from the Han Solo origin story. It’s clear we should expect things to be different from other movies set in the Star Wars galaxy that was created by George Lucas.
We can’t get over how clean and new looking the Millennium Falcon looks. That said, if there’s one thing clear from this new preview featurette for Solo, the movie will have some very dark moments.
“The universe we see in Solo was different from anything we’ve seen in any other Star Wars film,” says director Ron Howard. “The Empire controls everything. Everyone is struggling to survive, but we discover this incredible free spirit.”
The clips include what appear to be moments from Han’s early days. Is that him as an Imperial soldier? WHow long did he train to be a pilot? here does he meet Chewbacca for the first time? Was it Han who gave him that nickname?
What do you think of the latest feauturette?
