Head over to Entertainment Weekly for some analysis from Anthony Breznican, who will have some actual reveals for us next week, or below for some (mostly) official stills, including two that aren’t from the trailer.
Jedi Bibliothek has the details on Marvel’s The Last Jedi adaptation. The six-part comic is will be written by Rogue One co-scriptwriter Gary Whitta and illustrated by Michael Walsh. The main cover is by Mike Del Mundo, and there’s also a Joe Quesada variant.
Jason Ward over at Making Star Wars weighs in on the Solo trailer and the Super Bowl. His source says that “a shorter version of the teaser will hit on the Super Bowl” on Sunday, with a longer one to follow next week. Seems likely enough, but as always, we’ll see!
It’s been widely speculated in fan circles that Lucasfilm may launch the marketing campaign for Solo: A Star Wars Story with a Super Bowl spot, but now we have The Hollywood Reporter weighing in.

The Last Jedi has now made more than $1.3 billion, making it the all-time 9th-biggest global grosser. It’s unlikely to go any higher as we start heading into blockbuster season, with Fifty Shades Freed and Black Panther on the horizon. Scott Mendelson at Forbes writes why it’s still (duh) a big win for Disney.
