The Han Solo origin story has left us all a little bit anxious. Reports of massive reshoots, a dramatic firing of the directors, and not a drop of footage despite being three months out from the premiere was leaving everyone a touch nervous.
Well, that finally ended today: Disney dropped a 45-second teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and everyone can agree on one thing: even if the film is a disaster, Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrission is divine.

It’s fantasy casting come to life. That fur coat? The BEARD? Damn, son.
The thirst for Glover’s Lando is strong.

No strong opinions on the Solo trailer, but very much looking forward to the scene where Donald Glover drops his fur coat to reveal he’s unflinchingly naked underneath and proceeds to have passionate anal with Han Solo.

Solo: A Star Wars Story also stars Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo, Emilia Clarke as Qi-Ra, Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett and Thandie Newtown (rumour-only, so no character name yet), but you wouldn’t know it. Might as well be renamed Calrissian: The Lando Story.
There’s a full trailer out tomorrow, so prepare for a bigger look at the film (which is out May 24). Cannot wait, tbqh.
