I have a GOOD feeling about this. (For now.)
Because "Solo" went through eleventh hour director changes and reshoots, there were fears we might have a turkey on our hands. For many fans, the trailer brought a sigh of relief, and the cautious optimism of A New Hype.
It's true that Alden Ehrenreich does not sound anything like Harrison Ford's Han Solo, but hopefully that's a hurdle we can all get over quickly once the full movie starts playing. If not, well ... then he was miscast, and that's that.
Everyone else seems fine ("It's fine! We're fine!"), including Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suatomo as Chewbacca, "Game of Thrones" queen Emilia Clarke as intriguing new character Qi'Ra ("I may be the only person who knows what you really are"), and Woody Harrelson as Han's mentor. Thandie Newton and Paul Bettany also costar, and we can probably expect a few more TV spots/teasers to share details on the supporting characters.
And here are some cool new posters:
And this here's the official synopsis from Lucasfilm:
"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. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot 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."
"Solo" opens May 25, in time for Memorial Day weekend.
