‘Solo’ Super Bowl ad teases fans, offering the first look at the new ‘Star Wars’ film

It’s finally here! The first look at Solo: A Star Wars Story via Super Bowl ad.

The short teaser does just that, just teases fans with very quick glimpses of the supporting cast: Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover. The star, Alden Ehrenreich, is kept in the shadows as the actor taking on the role made famous by Harrison Ford.

Clarke plays Qui’Ra, finally seen alongside her droid companion that might be the CG character fans know Phoebe Waller-Bridge is playing.

Disney and Lucasfilm were successful in one thing: get some attention and people talking.

Check out the trailer below.

Slash Film perfectly summarized the drama behind the film: “Solo arrives under the cloud of a troubled production. The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street helmers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were originally hired to direct the film, but after months of shooting, the duo were fired after clashing with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. Ron Howard then came in to take over. Since then, rumors have stated that Howard reshot a huge chunk of the film, while some people involved with the production – including co-star Thandie Newton – suggest that a large amount of what Lord and Miller shot remains.”

Here’s the synopsis: “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. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.”

Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan wrote the screenplay. Solo also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca) with Paul Bettany has been added as a character that Michael Kenneth Williams was expected to play, but instead of being a motion-capture alien, he’ll be a real person.

Solo: A Star Wars Story releases in U.S. theaters on May 25, 2018
