The teaser trailer for the ever-elusive Solo: A Star Wars Story may arrive as soon as this Sunday. A new report claims that the Solo trailer will drop during Super Bowl LII.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sunday's Super Bowl will offer Star Wars fans a first glimpse of the film, which is due out in May. From there, Solo's marketing campaign will reportedly launch in full swing. Per the report, Disney may be waiting for the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi to die down before gearing up for Solo. The studio declined to comment on the matter.
Though Disney has not unveiled a trailer for the film, the studio did release an official synopsis:
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.
The Super Bowl, where the New England Patriots will play the Philadelphia Eagles, begins Sunday at 3:30 pm PT on NBC.
Based off a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, in addition to Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams and Woody Harrelson. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
