While everyone tuned into the Super Bowl for the face-off between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, Star Wars took the attention in the first quarter as a teaser for the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story aired.
Lots of discussion in the entertainment world has revolved around the Han Solo-focused film dropping soon, but not a lot of information had been released prior to tonight’s commercial.
The ad included the first twist of the film — Solo wanted to join the Imperial forces he ultimately helped take down. The character originally played by Harrison Ford is seen training as a pilot for the Empire and saying he will eventually be “the best in the galaxy.”
The trailer also shows that actors Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, and Alden Ehrenreich (as Han Solo) will all appear in the movie.
While the ad was more of a teaser, fans can look forward to a full-length trailer airing tomorrow on Good Morning America as the verified Twitter account representing the Star Wars franchise announced the upcoming clip tonight.
