As you might have heard, Solo: A Star Wars Story finally got it’s first trailer! I do not have a lot of confidence in this movie, but now that I’ve seen this trailer, I am a whole lot more excited to see it. I don’t know about you, but I really am! And yes, of course I love the music! Anyway, before we begin, you can watch the trailer below…
First off, we have someone who is most likely Han Solo flipping switches. “I’ve been running scams on the street since I was ten,” says young Han Solo. The next few scenes show a car chase, or in their case, a speeder chase. We see Emilia Clark’s character, Qi’ra, sitting next to Han in a speeder. “I was kicked out of the flight academy for having a mind of my own,” Han says. We see a new planet with snowy mountains. Han is standing in the snow. “I’m going to be a pilot,” he says. “Best in the galaxy.” Next we see the Millennium Falcon, and it’s looking a lot newer and cleaner. I really hope we get to see when Han wins the Falcon from Lando Calrissian. Another place, I don’t know if it’s a new planet or not, is sandy with a nearby ocean. “Hey kid,” says Beckett (Woody Harrelson), a new character to Star Wars. “I’m putting together a crew.” We see multiple new characters, and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. “You in?” Beckett asks. Chewbacca roars his reply. “That’s yes,” Han translates.
Next, Lando and a new droid salute each other before the Falcon goes into hyperspace. I’m really excited about this new droid, because I get attached to robots very fast! We see another new place, a bar of some sort (kind of reminds me of Canto Bight a little bit). Another shot of Qi’ra, who says to Han, “I might be the only person who knows what you really are.”
There’s a stand off between Han and some interesting looking new characters, someone shooting at people, explosions, new ships. Han pilot’s a ship away from a huge explosion. “What’s that?” Han replies to Qi’ra.
The last part shows a really cool shot of a Star Destroyer breaking through a very heavy fog as a new TIE Fighter design chases the Millennium Falcon. “Get ready,” Han says. He flips the Falcon upside down and smashes one of the TIE Fighters. Hera does the same move in the Star Wars Rebels mid-season four trailer! “I thought we were in trouble there for a second,” says Han. “But it’s fine, we’re fine.” Everyone screams when they nearly run into a giant squid creature. This part looks pretty cool!
And that’s that! I might love the trailer, but I’m still the slightest bit skeptical about the actual movie. Guess we’ll see! What do you think about the trailer? Are you looking forward to the movie? Let me know in the comments!
