The rumored release dates for the first official Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer have come and gone, but that hasn't stopped Disney from giving out a few juicy details, providing the first official synopsis for the much-anticipated film.Although many fans had anticipated an official trailer during Good Morning America last week and the latest football game, neither TV events hosted the trailer leaving many fans scratching their heads and others disappointed. But even though we didn't get to see anything yet, Disney has provided an official synopsis that will keep us excited for the short bit until the actual trailer is released. The synopsis reads:
"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."
Somewhat predictable, but at least now we have a confirmed plot. With Solo just about four months away now, we should be seeing something soon (Superbowl, perhaps?)
Disney and Lucasfilm had confirmed recently that Alden Ehrenreich, playing Han Solo, and Donald Glover, playing Lando Calrissian, are due for reshoots starting tomorrow and going through February that they're describing as "pick-up shots." The reshoots will be done in the studio, so the actors won't have to travel to any of the filming locations.
With this news and The Last Jedi still in theaters, it makes sense that there would be a delay in releasing the trailer. However, with a little patience, we'll get there, and it will all be worth it!
