Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. That’s the opening line of the official synopsis that Disney just revealed to the world regarding the new Han Solo spin-off film.
Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future co-pilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
Judging by the synopsis it would seem that Solo: A Star Wars Story is very much an origins story, which will mould the back story for the world’s most famous space pirate. However, like you, we too are waiting for that first trailer to drop.
With the film scheduled to open in summer 2018, Disney should drop that trailer fairly soon. Unless it heads back for reshoots and gets pushed back for a few months. After all, we all know what happened following the firing of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller with Ron Howard coming in later to wrap up the film.
Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Joonas Suotamo. The film will land in cinemas in end May 2018.
