Great news! The geek inside is jumping outside of its skin because the first official trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story has been released.
My nails should be trimmed with a lightsabre because I missed this film on my list of movies that you should miss in 2018. How can I forget that there’s another Star Wars film coming out in 2018?
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released in May 2018. This Science Fiction / Space Western film will feature performances by Alden Ehrenreich (who is playing the role of Han Solo), Woody Harrelson (who needs no introduction), Emilia Clarke (who you might know from television’s Game of Thrones), Donald Glover (who is playing the role of Lando Calrissian), Thandie Newton (who you might know from HBO’s Westworld), Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo and Paul Bettany.
The film is directed by Ron Howard (who also directed Apollo 13). It’s the first time an academy award winning director has ever made a Star Wars film.
During an adventure into a dark criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his future co-pilot Chewbacca and encounters Lando Calrissian years before joining the Rebellion. Check out the first official trailer for the film below:
I’m really excited to watch this film and I’m curious to see what the gang will get up to. It looks like it’s going to be an action-packed affair like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was in 2016. Let’s hope that this film does not disappoint the over-excited Star Wars fan inside of me.
