Solo: A Star Wars Story to Release Trailer

Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer Jumps to Hyperspace Monday

According to, the trailer release date for the upcoming Star Wars solo anthology movie Solo: A Star Wars Story has been announced. Disney and Lucasfilm will release the trailer on Monday, February 5. The viewers of Good Morning America will be getting the first look, probably because Disney owns ABC.

The synopsis of this film is:

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.

Behind-the-scenes trouble

Solo: A Star Wars Story castThe second Star Wars anthology film has survived a great deal of controversy. First, directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller left the project due to “creative differences.” Then, Disney hired an acting coach for Alden Ehrenreich late in the production process. This is comical because a character played by the same actor in Hail Caesar appeared to have similar issues. Finally, Disney and Lucasfilm expect the film to do poorly at the box office, distressing Star Wars fans. 

Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as the eponymous Han Solo. It also stars Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, and Emilia Clarke as Kira. The film is now directed by Ron Howard. 

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be in a theater near you on May 25, 2018.
