Han and Chewie Get Their Big Break in the Final Solo Trailer

The final Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer is here, and we’re getting a few lessons about honor among thieves. But we probably should have expected that.

Here it is, folks:

Perhaps the most tickling part of the trailer is Han finding out the Chewie is nearly two centuries old. (This has been a long-known piece of canon that is happily resurfacing in a beautiful way on film.) We also see Chewie hug a fellow Wookiee, and while it could be anyone at all, it would be wonderful if it turned out to be his wife, Malla. And then there’s a cool space train and Chewie hanging on to Han for dear life, so expect to have a lot of feelings about those two.

We’re getting a better idea of precisely what the film is about and what the dynamics are between the characters. Safe to say that you can’t trust Woody Harrelson in anything–or you’re meant not to trust him because whatever betrayal goes down in the job will end up being far more personal and painful for Han and Chewie. Lando is his usual beautiful scoundrel self, and his robot pal L3 is already a delight.

The job looks dangerous, and you can bet not everyone is making it out alive, or at least in one piece. Is Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett giving Han is infamous blaster? Is Emilia Clarke’s Qi’Ra all that she seems? Will we ever get to hear Thandie Newton’s Val talk?

Guess we’ll have to wait until May 25th to find out.
