First SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Trailer Debuts Young Han Solo

Han Solo is gonna be a pilot, the best in the galaxy.

The first official teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story debuted last night during Super Bowl LII, which featured the Philadelphia Eagles defeating the New England Patriots 41-33.  The full one-minute, 30-second trailer, meanwhile, was released this morning on ABC's Good Morning America.

The trailer opens with the young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) flipping some switches in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon, accompanied with a voiceover from Han saying "I've been running scams on the streets since I was ten..."

We see Han and Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) in a type of landspeeder, fleeing from someone as Han continues, "...I was kicked out of the Flight Academy for having a mind of my own.  I'm gonna be a pilot, the best in the galaxy."

We then see the shiny, white interior of the Falcon and glimpse Han admiring the ship's exterior.

"Hey, kid," begins Beckett (Woody Harrelson), Han's criminal mentor, "I'm putting together a crew."

Fleeting images of Qi'ra exiting the Falcon, a young Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) follow, and Thandie Newton's unnamed character follow.  "You in?" asks Beckett.

Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) growls a response, which Han translates for Beckett.  "That's yes."

We see Lando and his co-pilot droid launching the Falcon into hyperspace, along with some fleeting action images.

"I might be the only person who knows what you really are," remarks Qi'ra to Han.  

Han grins in response, saying "What's that?"

The Falcon is shown being pursued by a squadron of TIE fighters, with Han and Chewie at the controls and Lando and Qi'ra seated behind them.  "Get ready!" remarks Han as he spins the Falcon around to knock one of the TIE fighters into an asteroid.  

"Thought we were in trouble there for a second, but it's fine," he tells everyone with a cocky grin.  "We're fine."

All at once, everyone looks up and sees a giant tentacled alien coming at them, which the Falcon narrowly dodges.

If you'd like to check out the trailer, you can view it below thanks to the official Star Wars account on YouTube...

Solo: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 25, 2018.
