Are You Getting A Good Feeling About The New Solo Trailer?

Disney have just dropped the full-length trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story and, well, it’s pretty good.

Take a look and see what you think…

So the main take here is that we actually get a little more of Alden Ehrenreich’s performance as Han Solo, in the unenviable position of taking over from screen legend, Harrison Ford. While this trailer still doesn’t sell me completely, I have to admit he’s looking a little more promising. It seems to be an approximation of Ford’s swagger without being a slavish imitation.

The main problem is that Donald Glover (taking over Lando Calrissian from Billy Dee Williams) absolutely steals every shot he’s in, leading me to wonder why this film isn’t actually called Lando. Still, there’s the added value of Woody Harrelson, and that’s never a bad thing.

Will Solo overcome its highly troubled production problems and give us the high-spirited heist movie the trailer promises? And will Ehrenreich win us over as our beloved rogue? We’ll find out in just over six weeks. Meanwhile, sound off in the comments below with your thoughts on the trailer…

Solo: A Star Wars Story punches its way into cinemas on May 25th.

“You in…?” Disney Finally Proves Solo Is An Actual Movie

With all the industry scuttlebutt that’s been hanging over the production of Solo – A Star Wars Story (Miller and Lord being fired from directorial duties at the eleventh hour, incoming director Ron Howard seemingly reshooting swathes of material) , and with so little little visible evidence of the actual film (we’re just three months from this sucker arriving at our local multiplexes, for goodness’ sake) it was beginning to feel like we were being sold a fake bill of goods.

But now, just to prove cynical old naysayers like myself wrong, here’s an actual trailer and proof that Solo is a film and really exists. See for yourself…

See? Alden Ehrenreich really is playing Young Harrison Ford and Donald Glover really is Young Billy Dee Williams. Woody Harrelson is playing Grizzled Old Career Criminal and Emilia Clarke is The Woman (hopefully her role will be better than that but not judging from this first trailer).

Difficult to tell from this whether this actually real movie will be any good after all the backstage shenanigans, but Howard is – at the very least – a steady pair of hands.

We’ll be able to judge for ourselves when the film really does hit cinemas in just over 90 days…
