Solo: A Star Wars Story has been making a lot of news since the film was first announced. Most of it bad news involving original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller unceremoniously being fired from the project when 80 percent of the film had completed principle photography and rumors of Alden Ehrenreich’s atrocious acting.
Many fans and non-fans of the Star Wars franchise are already calling the film a failure before it even hits theaters and bringing in Ron Howard to finish the film, along with a few reshoots – doesn’t seem to sway the naysayers either. Well, Lucasfilm is hoping that with the release of a second trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story will help hype the movie up in a big epic way.
The second trailer gives us a bunch of new footage that shows a bit more of the plot and the players set in this story. Check it out below:
We are finally getting a feel for the tone of the movie that sure looks like a wild ride. The action set pieces are coming in together nicely as we get quick glimpse of a bad ass heist on an Imperial train with some new looking Storm Troopers fitted for the snowy weather.
I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t part of the crowd that thought Alden Ehrenreich might’ve been a bad choice to play the legendary role of Han Solo – but this trailer is starting to make me a believer.
Finally, we get a glimpse of Paul Bettany’s character, Dryden Vos and we got more Emilia Clarke as Qi’Ra. BUT, the most important character we got to see more of is Donald Glover, AKA Childish Gambino, AKA The Man Who Has Stolen My Heart…
Anyway, the movie is looking more and more awesome with every bit of new footage or promotion that comes out as the newest installment in the Star Wars franchise nears its released date. Looks like Ron Howard might have saved the day after all.
