*Update* Disney has confirmed this is NOT official promotional art for Solo: A Star Wars Story. This article is presented as it was first written.
After what has been an extremely long wait, the first look at the upcoming Star Wars spin-off film, Solo: A Star Wars Story is here in the form of a promotional image that has hit the internet. It features Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, and of course, Chewbacca.
The images come courtesy of LicensingRussia:
While there hasn’t been a trailer released for the film yet, there was an alleged description that hit the internet earlier this week, saying:
Not much, but here’s a rundown of what l caught a glimpse of. There’s more obviously but this was the big stuff.
Han walking, angle only shows his holstered blaster
Wookiees getting transferred somewhere. Planet looked new, never seen it before
Shot from behind of Han approaching a large crowd surrounding a table or something
Close up of Han’s dice
There’s like one shot of Woody’s character, but it was in a dark alley area and he looked paranoid
Han doing his “Yehoo!” yell and the Falcon going through light speed
Chewbacca roaring and running next to Han
Somebody says “it’s not worth the risk”, pretty sure Lando says it
There is a cut-to-black and somebody says “l’ll make him pay” and there’s a huge long rifle on a table with some armor piece next to it
Didn’t see much of GoT chick’s character. There’s a “This Summer” title card that shows right after a glimpse of a handful of stormtroopers walking down an alley.
Here’s hoping the film turns out to be a good one, as there’s not really been much surrounding this film but negative news following the film’s directors being fired and ultimately replaced by Ron Howard. We all know Howard is a very talented and capable filmmaker, so it possibly could end up being alright.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is currently slated for a May 25, 2018 release.
