The clip opens with Qi’Ra (Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke) asking Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) about his ultimate mission. “Is it revenge? Money? Or is it something else?” she ponders. We cut to Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), who recruits a desperate Solo to join his crew for an important job.
“I’m a driver, and I’m a flyer,” Solo says. “I’ve waited a long time for a shot like this.” Solo then encounters Calrissian, whom he touts as almost a mythical figure, in a bar. “Everything you’ve heard about me is true,” the cocky smuggler boasts. Between the dialogue, the clip incorporates dazzling action shots featuring Imperial troopers and the Millennium Falcon.
The first official trailer debuted in February. In that preview, Solo talks about being “the best [pilot] in the galaxy.” Solo, the Star Wars franchise’s second anthology spin-off following 2016’s Rogue One, hits theaters on May 25th. The movie is one of Rolling Stone‘s 50 Most Anticipated Films of 2018.
Solo: A Story Wars Story has encountered numerous roadblocks during production, including the departure of directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller during the shoot. Filmmaker Ron Howard was hired to complete the film.
