The Star Wars universe is getting a little larger this summer with the new alone film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will explain what Han Solo was doing before he met Luke and Leia. While some fans are looking forward, others are leery about the new venture. At any rate, the Disney/LucasFilm studios have released to new posters and a new trailer for the new movie. Let the debates begin!

"Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy," describes Disney. "Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets 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, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany. Solo opens in theaters on May 25, 2018.
