There has been a lot of debate over who shot first Han Solo or Greedo over the years in the STAR WARS mythology and fans have been debating over this since the first entry in the STAR WARS universe premiered in 1977.
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.
The character of Han Solo was killed off in the STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and now his story has been rebooted with Alden Ehrenreich taking the reins of the character. The trailer shows some action packed scenes with a few iconic Han Solo references that we have been accustomed to Harrison Ford delivering with his control of the character but it seems odd coming from Alden.
The trailer starts off in a dystopian city with Qi’ra talking to someone which is presumable Han shimself, Qi’ra is played by Emilia Clarke of the 'Game of Thrones' fame who is joined by Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett who seems to be mentoring the young smuggler in the film.
The trailer will trace the beginning of Han Solo and Chewbacca’s journey, exploits and expeditions before finally meeting up with an aged Obi Wan Kenobi and a young Luke Skywalker at a cantina in Tatooine.
Though it is too early to judge Alden portrayal of Han Solo by comparing it with Harrison Ford but it feels like it is lacking a commitment and a sort of arrogance which we hope is left out for character arc reasons and will grow into it.
Donald Glover brings the smoothness and calmness of Lando in the character and looks incredible in the trailer. He is also seen flying the millennium falcon which is one of the most famous spaceships in all of history is not the most famous.
The trailer is filled with action sequences which looks absolutely amazing and makes the wait for the release of the film that much eager.
Producer by Lucas Arts and directed by Ron Howard, the film is scheduled to release on 25th of May 2018.
