There’s just a little over four months to go until the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and as yet we’ve seen very little in the way of promotional material for the second Star Wars Anthology movie. However, if rumours are to be believed, that will all change this week.
After presenting some footage at an event in Germany a few days ago, it is now being reported that Disney and Lucasfilm will unveil the first trailer for the Han Solo film this week, debuting it online in the coming days, before screening it in theaters alongside Maze Runner: The Death Cure.
#Solo trailer this week, most likely Wednesday. Source at the corporate side of AMC tells me Solo trailer will be placed (not attached) with Maze Runner releasing Jan 26. But trailer will hit online days before. Guys been right before. But file as rumor as always. (Errors fixed)

It should be noted that we haven’t seen any of the film classification organisations rating the trailer just yet, which is often the case ahead of a trailer reveal, so we’ll have to treat this as a rumour for the time being. Let’s hope its true though!
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.
