Any good heist needs a good crew, and Solo: A Star Wars Story assembles its team of criminals and scoundrels in its latest TV spot, which features Jon Favreau as the voice of the alien Rio Durant.

Assembled by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), the team boasts droid L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), Emilia Clarke's Qi'ra, Thandie Newton's Val, the aforementioned Rio Durant, and of course Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo, Joonas Suotamo's Chewbacca and Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian, with the latter continuing to lay on the scene-stealing charm.

Taking place before the events of 1977's A New Hope, Solo details the origins of the titular smuggler, including his friendships with Chewbacca and Lando, how he obtained the Millennium Falcon, and became the charismatic scoundrel that played such a pivotal role in the Rebel Alliance years later.
