Fans eagerly awaiting the first footage from Solo: A Star Wars Story now have another date to look forward to. A new rumor suggests the teaser trailer for the anthology film could debut on Wednesday, Jan. 24.
The trailer for director Ron Howard's film was previously rumored to premiere on Jan. 12, but it obviously didn't materialize. However, hope has reignited with word that it will be attached to Maze Runner: The Death Cure, arriving in theaters on Friday, Jan. 26. Fans may be able to see the teaser earlier, however, as whispers point to it arriving early online, giving us a glimpse into the origins of Han Solo and his early days with Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian and the Millennium Falcon.
#Solo trailer this week, most likely Wednesday. Source at the corporate side of AMC tells me Solo trailer will be placed (not attached) with Maze Runner releasing Jan 26. But trailer will hit online days before. Guys been right before. But file as rumor as always. (Errors fixed)— Star Wars Junkman (@StarWarsJunk) January 21, 2018
With the film premiering in May, up against Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2, many are anxiously anticipating the first footage. It's been speculated that Lucasfilm and Disney want the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi to die down.
In the meantime, we'll have to settle for the plethora of behind-the-scenes photography from Howard's Twitter account and the official synopsis Disney recently unveiled:
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.
Directed by Ron Howard and from a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams and Woody Harrelson. The film opens May 25.
