Solo: A Star Wars Story: Space cowboy

Han Solo indeed is the original space cowboy, and he’s facing off against what appears to be the film’s antagonist or at the very least a foil for Solo. The villain seems to have a bit of a Mandalorian vibe to him, and a scary looking crew is backing him up.

Will Chewie come to his rescue or will his lucky pair of dice give him the luck he needs to escape? That mask looks an awful lot like Kylo Ren’s apparatus, doesn’t it? Perhaps it’s a coincidence, but likey there’s a reason for it, which I hope we explore.

"Get ready!"

The Imperials are in hot pursuit of the Solo and the rest of the heist crew. The Falcon is making all of the right moves in evading capture or destruction. Han Solo wasn’t lying when he tells Luke that he’s outrun Imperial starships, not the local bulk-cruisers.

"I thought we were in trouble there for a second. But it’s fine, we’re fine."

This line is a reference to when Han Solo engages in that improv conversation with the Stormtrooper.

"But, uh, everything’s perfectly all right now. We’re fine. We’re all fine here, now, thank you."

Han Solo is as suave as ever, you smooth talker you.

More from Dork Side of the Force

Phew. Now that we’ve all caught our breath, what a wild ride that trailer was. The most prominent concern Star Wars fans had was if Ehrenreich was going to pull off Han Solo. No one expects him to be as good, but he needs to make us think he’s Han Solo. So far, so good, with Ehrenreich not only looking the part but sounding the part as well.

Both trailers didn’t give too much away, either. It’s likely we will receive one more, full-length trailer before the Memorial Day release, but it will be a terrible mistake if they reveal too much. Save the moment, when Lando and Han are dueling it out in an intense match of Corellian Sabacc, for the film. The same rings true of Han rescuing Chewie from the Spice Mines of Kessel — as well as the epic Kessel run itself.

Overall, the teaser trailers both deliver, with the Disney/Lucasfilm on par to provide yet another fantastic and well-made film.
