Watch Watch the trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story

The latest film to come from the Star Wars universe is centred around everyone’s favourite scoundrel, Han Solo

It’s here, it’s here! Lucasfilm have released the first teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the second feature spin off from the Star Wars Universe after 2016’s Rogue One.

As the title would suggest, Solo: A Star Wars Story – directed by Ron Howard - is centred around everyone’s favourite scoundrel, Han Solo and is set some years before Star Wars: A New Hope. We’ll see a young Han (Alden Ehrenreich) navigate his way through a criminal underworld, meet his future best friend and co-pilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and encounter the notorious gambler, Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). 

The teaser doesn’t reveal an awful lot of the story but we do get our first proper look at the main protagonists including Woody Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett and Emilia Clarke’s Qi’Ra not to mention a shiny and clean Millennium Falcon.

As well as the teaser there is also a TV spot which indicates that Han was willing to join the Empire in order to hone is piloting skills.

You can check out the teaser and TV spot below.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is released in UK cinemas on the 25th May 2018.
