Finally, after production turmoil that would take up a Star Wars opening credits-sized scrawl of text, we get a glimpse at Solo: A Star Wars Story via this Super Bowl TV spot. Even more promising is the tease that we’ll get the full trailer tomorrow!
There’s not much to go on, but we do get glimpses of Emilia Clarke’s Qi’Ra, Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian, and Woody Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett, as well as a few familiar soundtrack beats. As for Han himself, Alden Ehrenreich, we hear him say “I wanna be a pilot, the best in the galaxy”, before a final shot of an incarcerated Solo.
What are your initial reactions to the teaser? Do they allay any fears, or have they further underlined your bad feeling about this? As always, let us know in the comments section…
