Lucasfilm just released the first clip from “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. In what seems like a bit of deja-vu, watch as Han and crew try to escape a fleet of TIE Fighters through an asteroid field. If that music sounds familiar to you, it contain bits from that classic scene in “The Empire Strikes Back” when we first saw Han, Chewie and Leia escaping from The Empire by navigating the Millennium Falcon through an asteroid field.
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
The film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany.
Ron Howard directs “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” and Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are the producers. Lawrence Kasdan, Jason McGatlin, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller serve as executive producers. Jonathan Kasdan & Lawrence Kasdan wrote the screenplay.
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY opens in U.S. theaters on May 25.
