Yesterday Lucasfilm dropped a 45-second long TV spot for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and while I don’t usually breakdown and analyze TV spots, I couldn’t help myself with this latest look at Solo. The reason I felt the need to break down this spot is solely based on the fact that it featured 15 new scenes that haven’t been featured before, as well for the fact that most of these scenes dealt with Han and Chewbacca’s relationship. In fact, the spot showcased the first introduction between the two iconic space buds, so again, this preview warranted a bit of attention.
I wouldn’t say that this spot revealed much more about the film’s plot, but it did offer up the notion that Chewbacca may be the main source of comedy in the movie. The exchange between him and Han while Han is playing Lando in Sabacc is just priceless, and goes to show that these two had a brotherly bond as far back as their relationship goes.
You can check out the trailer breakdown above. We also snagged 15 new stills from the footage, which you can check out in this Solo gallery.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25, 2018.
