A new rumor suggests that the first trailer for the Han Solo-centric Star Wars anthology film Solo: A Star Wars Story could be arriving this Friday.
News of the potential release date stems from a Twitter post by the Star Wars Legacy YouTube channel, which suggests the trailer will drop on the January 12 edition of Good Morning America. It isn't entirely clear what's fueling this speculation, but given that Lucasfilm premiered the first teaser trailer for Rogue One on GMA in 2016, it makes sense that the studio would leverage the same platform for Solo, which is just under five months away.
Disney and Lucasfilm surprised everyone when they fired directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller back in June while filming was still underway for Solo. Following the news of their departure, rumors began circulating that Lucasfilm was eying director Ron Howard to come in and finish filming, which still had several weeks of principal photography remaining. Howard was later officially confirmed to take over the project, and while some reports suggest he ended up reshooting much more than initially thought, Lando Calrissian actor Donald Glover has assured fans that the change in production didn't have too much of an effect on the final product.
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.
