There's a lot for fans to digest as the film speeds through a check-list of Han's origin components, like how he meets Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) and how he comes across the Millennium Falcon.
Yes, the film has had a somewhat tortured production history, with original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller getting shown the escape pod before Ron Howard came in and did a majority do-over.
"I still consider myself an independent, low-budget filmmaker", Young said previously.
Besides that, we also get some interesting insight from director of photography Bradford Young.
Johnson, who's also developing a new Star Wars movie trilogy, joked you're probably not looking for the "hard-edged film criticism" from his Instagram Story.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters on May 25.
There are thrilling action sequences, cinematographer Bradford Young ("Arrival") gives the movie a handsome look, there are fantastic performances by Ehrenreich and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, and Donald Glover completely knocks it out of the park as Lando Calrissian.
Dryden Vos is no doubt evil, but Bettany plays him with such likability and eloquence that I thought he stood out as more than just a generic villain. Alden won the hearts of the audience as he captured the spirit of Ford's Han Solo while making the character his own. Much to everyone's surprise, Daniels actually plays an entirely different character.
One enterprising fan has taken that dream to the next level by digitally replacing Ehrenreich's face with that of a young Ford in the trailer for "Solo: A Star Wars Story". But perhaps the most encouraging thing one can say about "Solo" is that unlike "Rogue One", it not only leaves room for a possible sequel to this prequel, but finishes strongly enough that such a prospect seems enticing. So how does seeing these two events in live-action stack up?
It's no secret that a majority of Star Wars fans have been anxious about the overall quality of Solo, which releases next week.
