After months of anticipation, Lucasfilm and Disney finally kicked off the marketing campaign for Solo: A Star Wars Story last night during the Super Bowl, followed by the full trailer reveal this morning.

The latest Star Wars anthology film will depict Han Solo's early adventures with Alden Ehrenreich taking over the role from Harrison Ford. Most importantly, we get to see Han in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon being, as usual, an awesome though reckless pilot. Now he has the chance to join Beckett's (Woody Harrelson's new character) crew.

The teaser also includes Solo's co-pilot and furry friend Chewbacca along for the intergalactic ride.

In a voiceover, Han declares, "I've been running scams on the street since I was 10", which sounds like an appropriate brag for the famous smuggler. "I'm going to be a pilot!" he says. But another one generating a ton of buzz is Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Solo: A Star Wars Story features Hail, Caesar's Alden Ehrenreich as Han, with Atlanta's Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and The Force Awakens' Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.

LucasFilm also released four stunning new posters for the movie, set for release on 25 May 2018. Could be Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the creator and star of the BBC hit Fleabag who is featured in Solo.

Rumors had been swirling for weeks that the first trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story would air during the Super Bowl, and, while it was wonderful when it did, it was still just a teaser for the full trailer that would drop the next day. The Prequel is directed by Ron Howard and penned by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. The film has been marred by some very public production setbacks, including the firing of original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
