Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer Finally Makes Its Debut on Good Morning America

The trailer for the latest Star Wars film Solo: A Star Wars Story finally made its debut to a rather skeptical audience.

<a href="">After several delays,</a> the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise was revealed during the Super Bowl on Sunday in a TV Spot. The following day, the full trailer was shown exclusively on Good Morning America and then later uploaded on the official Star Wars YouTube channel.

The trailer begins with the rhythmic sound of flipping switches and a shot of the control console of the infamous ship the Millennium Falcon. Then we get the first audio of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo saying, "I've been running scams on the street since I was 10."

We then see Han Solo and Emilia Clarke's character Kira in a speeder chase with imperial speeder bikes close on their tail. From here on the action is relentless as Han Solo continues to narrate, "I was kicked out of the Flight Academy for having a mind of my own."

Next, we get a glimpse at Han Solo's aspirations as he explains, "I'm going to be a pilot… Best in the galaxy." We then get the first look at the shiny new interior of the Millennium Falcon as Han Solo looks it over.

There are also shots that introduce Woody Harelson's character Beckett as he attempts to recruit Han Solo and Chewbacca for a job. The visuals are stunning and nothing short of what one would expect from the biggest IP in film history.

The Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer promises lots of speeder chases, space battles and tons of new creatures and droids. With the release of the film only three months away, fans were beginning to lose hope that the film would be released on it's slated Memorial Day release date.

Adding to suspicions were rumors of Ehrenreich <a href="">needing an acting coach on set</a> and being difficult to work with. That isn't the only unnerving drama surrounding the film, the original directors hired by Disney were fired months into production after <a href="LINK GOES HERE">an apparent misunderstanding</a> about what type of film they were making.

Famed actor and director Ron Howard was hired to step in and steer the film back on track. Howard also served as the only social media liaison for the film and posted several teasing photos throughout production from on set.

The images shared by Howard were the only glimpses of the film as no other marketing has existed. Scrolling through Howard's social media feeds show only two things, tweets about the Solo movie and anti-Trump propaganda.

The move was certainly intentional and Disney never misses an opportunity to push their liberal SJW agenda. They limited exposure for the new film to Howard not just for marketing purposes but because they knew his opinions on Donald Trump.

Some fans speculate the lack of marketing for Solo is meant to not take away from the recent release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi which hit theaters last December.

With the release of the Solo film only three months away, we finally got a look at the film and the trailer was more exciting than I expected. Aside from seeing Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo for the first time, we also got a look at Danny Glover as Lando Calrissian.

Glover is both an accomplished actor and a hip-hop artist who goes by the name 'Childish Gambino'. While there are reservations among fans about Ehrenreich's performance, Glover's portrayal of the dashing smuggler and gambler is spot on and feels natural.

If they can refrain from stuffing the SJW agenda into every nook and cranny and this film leans toward the more serious tone of Rogue One it could mean we get a worthy installment in the Star Wars saga.

Until then, fans are left with a healthy dose of new material to pick apart in Star Wars theory YouTube channels without spoiling the plot of the film.

All in all, the release of the Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer seems to be a success and the trailer has an impressive 10-1 like ratio on the official Star Wars YouTube channel.

Disney is on the precipice of loosing the $4 billion Star Wars IP , this film is a chance to start turning things back around and I hope they take it.
