The Internet Reacts to 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Trailer

Star Wars spin-off to premiere at Cannes

One of the best things about the Star Wars Story films is the answering of questions fans have wanted answers to, or even some they didn't.

In the latest trailer for SOLO: A STAR WARS story we see repeated shots of Han Solo and his blaster pistol in his holster ready to fire at notice. She kicks off the trailer with a narration, talking to Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich).

The film takes us into the world of the smuggler-turned-hero long before his name became legend in "A New Hope".

Overall, it's a promising look at the "Star Wars" spin-off, directed by Duncan-born Oscar victor Ron Howard and due in theaters May 25. Although most of the supporting characters have yet to be fleshed out, the new droid L3-37 (performance captured by Phoebe Waller-Bridge) feels somewhat too reminiscent of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's K2-SO (Alan Tudyk).

Harrison Ford is an incredibly tough act to follow (or, in this case, preceed).

Ernesto Valverde says Barcelona La Liga record 'also belongs to Luis Enrique'
But the hosts moved in front in the 27th minute through a trademark Messi free-kick. La Liga top scorer Lionel Messi struck a hat-trick for the runaway leaders.

Although this isn't the first time a Star Wars film has debuted at Cannes, critics are concerned about "Solo" making its debut there since production has been messy.

The movie has been directed by Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Rush) and the screenplay is by Jonathan Kasdan and Lawrence Kasdan. The recent trailer (and still image above) shows that scene from a different angle, which reveals that Ehrenreich's Han Solo is also present in that sequence, standing in the back of the cockpit.

We're not going to spoil the treat for you but after watching this, you might feel like you're capable of making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. That means they should be featured prominently in the film, which is good news for Star Wars and Donald Glover fans.

Han has his own history with the pessimistic turn of phrase, uttering it a couple times in his older, battle-hardened years.
