New Star War Han Solo Spot

But considering the Ron Howard-directed spinoff takes place long before A New Hope - and before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, too - Solo is all set to deep dive into the early days of Han and Chewie's friendship, as they begin to mosey their way through the galaxy's criminal underworld.

Of course, a story about Han is also a story about his closest friend and copilot Chewbacca.

After watching this tv spot and going through some more trailers, I can't say for sure what the end result is gonna be, but like Han, I'm just gonna be positive and say, "I've got a good feeling about this".

Solo: A Star Wars Story is in theaters May 25.

The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo along with Joonas Suotomo as Chewbacca and Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian.

The sci-fi action thriller is directed by two-time Oscar victor Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind) from a script by Jonathan Kasdan and Lawrence Kasdan. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and unsafe 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.
