Latest SOLO Teaser Focuses on the Start of Han and Chewbacca's Relationship

With Solo: A Star Wars Story set to arrive in cinemas next month, a new TV spot has been released for the Star Wars anthology movie which includes a few snippets of new footage featuring Han and Chewie; check it out here... Thandie Newton (Westworld) plays Val, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Goodbye Christopher Robin) is L3-37, Paul Bettany (Avengers: Infinity War) plays Dryden Vos, and Joonas Suotamo (Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi) is Chewbacca. This new TV spot doesn't contain any grand revelations - it's mostly just a cut-down version of the trailer that surfaced on April 8. We see a rocket being fired from a raised platform. The next scene we get appears to be the first time that Han Solo and Chewbacca actually talk, as Han is asking the Wookie's name.

There's also a large focus on gambling in the spot, as we see money moving around a table a lot and Han apparently playing poker against somebody. And in the newest teaser for Solo, the beginning of Han and Chewbacca's lifelong friendship takes center stage. Either Chewie just has the worst possible poker face, or the pair may be trying to scam whoever Han is playing by making him think the cards are bad when they're not.

I've still got a good feeling about this, Star Wars fans. How important do you expect the start of Han and Chewie's relationship to be to the story?

Solo has been through a lot.

The synopsis of the film reads: "Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy". The Han and Chewbacca interaction feels right, even if other parts of it seem to still be trying to find the right footing.

The only major studio tentpole in official selection at next month's Cannes Film Festival, Solo: A Star Wars Story is also bound to be the Riviera event's hottest ticket.
