The trailer for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” finally dropped — but what are the odds that it will be any good? 41 years after we first met Han Solo, we’re finally going to learn his origin story. A lot of people have extremely high standards for the charismatic character, so obviously there’s a lot riding on the prequel.
Han is known for being a bit of a man of mystery – although in the EU, Han was an orphan who was raised by an old crook. He was a TIE fighter pilot, helped Chewie escape imperial slavery, and then began to travel the galaxy in a ship Han won in a gambling match. But the movie’s origin won’t be consistent with this so we’ll just have to see what they come up with.
Some think that the trailer shows how mundane the movie will be because so much was withheld — meaning they had to dearly hold on to the few good moments in the film. Also, they film switched directors three quarters of the way through, which seems a bit fishy. However, we’ll just have to see when it comes out if it can possibly live up to the renowned character.
