The trailer of Han Solo’s spinoff film is here and the first glimpse into the life of Star Wars‘ beloved character looks positive. The Solo: A Star Wars Story Official Trailer showed off a new-looking Millennium Falcon, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo.
This trailer shows off the origins of one of Star Wars’ most iconic heroes: Han Solo. In it, Solo says that he’s been running scams since he was a kid, was kicked out of a flight academy for “having a mind of my own,” and says that he wants to be the best pilot in the galaxy. He meets with Woody Harrelson’s new character Beckett, who tells him that he’s putting together a crew.
Like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the trailer for Solo lends a new vibe to the Star Wars universe. Expect a gangster/heist film with plenty of gunfights, crazy flying, and dark humor by the charming character.

The film had a rough production: midway through its shoot, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy fired directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord due to differing creative visions for the film and replaced them with Apollo 13 director Ron Howard, who filmed extensive reshoots. Solo: A Star Wars Story is expected to release on May 25.
