‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ trailer lacks a familiar voice, but looks like another sci-fi winner

Is it too late to ship Harrison Ford again in time to play a younger Han Solo? OK, effective. I get it.

A new trailer for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” dropped on Monday morning, simply hours after being teased throughout Sunday night time’s Tremendous Bowl, and my solely actual grievance is that I need Solo to sound extra like Solo.

Ford’s distinctive gruff voice is lacking in actor Alden Ehrenreich, who will get to play the younger smuggler within the newest spinoff from the primary Star Wars storyline. But that’s simply a nitpick after viewing a 1:30 trailer from a fan who’s been watching these things for 40 years. I’ll will at all times hear Harrison in Han.

Children rising up on Disney’s model of Star Wars occasions gained’t discover something, and that’s actually the purpose of those movies anyway.

The motion after all looks nice. With Star Wars motion pictures dropping seemingly yearly now, we’ve gotten used to a sure darkish look and pacing, and nothing seems like it’s going to drop off with “Solo.”

The supporting solid additionally looks prime notch — Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton — as do their garments. And, Solo’s finest bud, Chewbacca, a minimum of maintains a constant roar.

Glover’s obtained his work reduce out for him, for certain, bringing the sleek voice of Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) again to the large display screen. But Twitter definitely had his again on Monday morning. For instance:

the great issues about solo:
– donald glover as lando
– lando performed by donald glover
– did i point out donald glover?

The shiny new Millennium Falcon interiors within the Solo trailer are gorgeous. Take away the years of grease, and the Falcon (prime) looks extra like 2001: A House Odyssey (center, backside). pic.twitter.com/cBjpZkZMSQ
