The movie is slated to release on the 25th of May, 2018. Additional cast members include Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, and Paul Bettany.

After a much maligned and talked-about production, Lucasfilm and Disney dropped the newest trailer for "Solo: A Star Wars Story" and it gives fans some pretty exciting information, including Chewbacca's age. The story follows a young (er) Han Solo, played by Alden Ehrenreich (rather than going with an eerily lifelike computer-generated Harrison Ford). It's like, "I wish you good fortune in the wars to come", but less specific. "I heard a story about you, I was wondering if it's true", implies Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo. Now, with the movie being right around the corner, the House of the Mouse chose to treat fans with a brand new trailer. We then see Han getting recruited for a job and telling Tobias Beckett that he's a driver and has waited a long time for "a shot like this". Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) makes a handful of appearances as well, dishing out the cool line, "You might want to buckle up, baby".

Beckett tells the young Solo that once he chooses this life of crime, he can't go back.

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. There are five different covers for the issue, featuring Avengers: Infinity War, Incredibles 2,Ant-Man and The Wasp, Christopher Robin, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Hopefully, Solo will be as enjoyable as the excellent Rogue One, despite the behind-the-scenes issues.
