…judging by the online reaction, people almost seem more hyped about Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian in this 45-second trailer than anything else. And let’s face it…while Solo: A Star Wars Story star Alden Ehrenreich was the highlight of the 2016 film Hail, Caesar, he’s still somewhat of an unknown quantity.
What we do have in this slim…45 seconds long!…Super Bowl teaser is the vaguest impression of a story that sees a young Han Solo sort of “trying out” for a gig in the Empire…whether that’s for real or just part of a plot to infiltrate them, is unclear.
But with Woody Harrelson as some sort of cocky possible mentor-type personality (pretty much his archetype at this juncture of his career), some Chewbacca, and of course the aforementioned Lando…there’s some intriguing tidbits here. Maybe it’ll all make a film in the end.
