In their 2018 media kit, Disney released a synopsis (but no photo) for Solo: A Star Wars Story:
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 meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
Solo: A Star Wars Story releases in U.S. theaters on May 25, 2018.
yup, still coming out in May. We expect a trailer soon. (via)
With The Last Jedi out, it “won’t be long” until we see a Solo trailer, director Ron Howard tweeted to a curious fan Monday.
We have yet to have a first trailer for a new Star Wars movie show up unannounced (at least not without a Celebration or other major event in play,) so we can expect a heads-up a day or so before it drops.
Donald Glover was at the Television Critics Association for his show Atlanta, and naturally that means Solo questions. He talked about something Ron Howard shot with him as Lando Calrissian, discussed the director drama, and confirmed that capes are in play. (Surprise! Or not.)
John Williams will be contributing to the Solo soundtrack. “The present plan is that I’m writing a theme for Han Solo, and John Powell is going to write the score, which he’ll do brilliantly,” he told Variety.
A promo image for Solo has emerged from the wilds of the internet, giving us our (presumed) first non-fuzzy look at Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo, Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian, whoever Emilia Clarke is playing and the Millennium Falcon’s new/old paint job. Lucasfilm has asked at least one site to take it down, so chances are it’s legit, though a Lucasfilm rep told /Film that they didn’t create it.
