While director Ron Howard delivered regular social media updates and teases from the set of the film, we’ve had very little in the way of marketing material for next year’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, save for the official title and logo reveal back in October.
Obviously Disney and Lucasfilm are focussing their marketing efforts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi at present, but things may be about to change as the first teaser poster for Solo has now been spotted in theaters. It’s just the film’s logo, so nothing to get too excited about, but it may indicate that the first trailer could be just around the corner (and presumably puts to rest any speculation that the movie could be pushed back from its May release date following the director shake-up and extensive reshoots)…
