A new extended TV spot for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” shows the humour as well as the action of the new footage. While the promo is named as ‘crew’, one can only get a few bits and pieces of the supporting characters in the upcoming movie while the main spotlight of the clip is the great banter between Han Solo and Chewbacca.
The clip opens with several different parts of the train heist, similar to what we saw in the last trailer. The clip has a voice-over made by Han where he makes a countdown before everything explodes and we see a ship coming in and assume that it carries all our heroes in it. Another portion of the clip shows Han asking Chewbacca for the name of the Wookie. It is one of the most important meetings in the history of Star Wars and one will finally get to see it in the theatres when “Solo: A Star Wars Story” releases next month.
The iconic relationship between Han and Chewbacca is set to be explored a little in Solo, with the movie’s screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan referring to the movie as ‘bromance.’
Moreover, there is a lot of focus on the gambling spot as we can see money on a table and Han playing the role of a poker against a character. One of the funniest moments in the clip involves Han showing his cards to Chewbacca and the Wookie not being impressed with such an act obviously. As the cards are in the Star Wars language, it is difficult to say at a glance whether they are good or bad.
We have seen Han and Chewbacca to actively interact with one another like an old married couple and feel that everything is a ‘bad idea.’ We will learn what the movie has in store for us when it debuts on the big screens on May 25.
