Here we go: Disney just released another trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and there’s so much Han Solo, and more importantly, so much Lando.
The last trailer – which dropped one day after the Super Bowl – was weirdly devoid of Alden Ehrenreich‘s Han, relegating the titular character to lacklustre shots.
Compare that to our first shot of Donald Glover‘s Lando Calrissian in a luxurious fur coat and bedroom eyes / beard, for example –

– and it was definitely weird.
This new trailer gives us way more of the action and a greater look at what the standalone Han Solo film has to offer: banter, high stakes, and the familiar whine of a Landspeeder.
The film has been beset by drama, with Disney booting original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller mid last year and bringing in veteran Ron Howard to sort shit out. There were also reports that acting coaches were brought in for Ehrenreich quite late in the game – not necessarily an unusual move but slightly worrying all the same.
Fans have been pretty stoked with the new trailer, even if they weren’t totally on board with the film to begin with.
So hyped! Where’s everyone’s favorite bounty hunter though?

Solo looks like it will pass the “shut off my brain and enjoy space ships for two hours” litmus test at least and I am okay with that https://t.co/4zTk7xO7E7
