Clad in a Han Solo costume and sitting with his leg propped up on a table to mimic Solo's posture, Miculek begins by blasting a paper target of bounty hunter Greedo's face.
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. As expected, a lot of this new TV spot is focused on Han's relationship with Chewbacca, who is played by Joonas Suotamo.
"This is an exact replica of the blaster Han Solo used in the movie, his DL-44 model plaster, to be exact", Miculek said. While this seemingly unlikely friendship has been chronicled in many Star Wars flicks, fans of the franchise will be well aware that there's a standalone Han Solo movie in the works. It includes a voiceover of Han counting down before everything explodes and we see a ship, we assume containing our heroes, racing away in the nick of time.
We then get a card scene. Solo looks at Chewie before showing him his hand.
The short trailer shows Han learning Chewbacca's name, discussing good versus bad feelings, and also reveals a little more of a train heist. The Falcon then jets off into hyperspace. "Part of the challenge is to come up with new, inventive kinds of action we haven't seen in Star Wars", Solo co-writer Jonathan Kasdan told Empire. "Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and risky criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes".
