Update: First ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Trailer to Premiere on ‘Good Morning America’
Whether you care about sports or not, if you care about movies you should be watching the Super Bowl this Sunday. We already know the first Mission: Impossible – Fallout trailer is arriving, along with a possible first look at Cloverfield 3, plus The Rock’s Skyscraper disaster movie. And now the Super Bowl trailer slate has become exceptionally more exciting: finally, our very first look at the Han Solo movie may arrive.
UPDATE: You’ll have to wait one more day because the first Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer isn’t arriving until Monday morning, when it will debut on Good Morning America. For those of you that don’t usually watch the morning show, it starts at 7 a.m. But don’t worry — we’ll be up bright and early to post the trailer. And if you’re bummed about Sunday night, there’s still a chance that Lucasfilm will debut a short teaser or sneak peek during the Super Bowl.
Original story continues below…
Solo: A Star Wars Story is just three months away and we haven’t seen a single bit of promo material; no official photos, no teasers, nada. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Sunday’s game is reportedly when Disney plans to finally launch the Solo marketing campaign and introduce the world to Alden Ehrenreich’s young smuggler. We likely won’t get a full trailer; Super Bowl spots cost a hefty $5 million for just 30 seconds, and the longest trailer spot this year will supposedly be 90 seconds for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Disney is also expected to drop two other spots, likely for Black Panther, A Wrinkle In Time, or Avengers: Infinity War.
Just a couple weeks ago Lucasfilm released the first official synosis of the Han Solo origin story:
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.
On top of Ehrenreich, Solo stars Donald Glover as young Lando, Joonas Suatamo as Chewie, plus new characters, Emilia Clarke’s Kira, Woody Harrelson’s Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s CGI droid, and Thandie Newton. Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters May 25.
