The new trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story dropped last night, and it's good. Check it out below along with some screengrabs and a few thoughts...
Here is the trailer -
Below are a few screen grabs from the trailer. I suspect they are worth studying because there are most likely a few easter eggs in there. I'm especially taken with what appears to be a look at Mimban, but I will cover that separately below. For now, check out some of these screen grabs -
I have had a theory for a little while now that the movie will open on Mimban with Han as a Mud Trooper, serving in the Empire. I suspect this will lead to his going AWOL, probably with Chewie and earning himself a life on the run. Are we seeing a bit of this in the new trailer? The few shots below show Han in what appears to be Mud Tropper armour trying to convince a senior officer that his skills are as a pilot.
A little later in the trailer we see what appears to be a battle on Mimban. That looks like a Mud Trooper in the foreground there.
Also around this time we see Chewbacca lift a guy over his head and smash him into the ground. A, its nice to see Chewie in action like this and B, I think this is a part of his escape from slavery.
There is also a shot of Chewbacca forehead to forehead with another Wookiee. Could this be Malla? Is this Chewie's wife's first live action canon appearance?
Overall I like this trailer, I think the movie looks a lot of fun. I'm not sure why I'm not more excited by it though. I will see this movie multiple times in the cinema of course and I'm sure we will be talking about between now and then, which may get me more worked up, but for now, i feel liek something is missing, even though I'm still very positive for the film.
