Good to see Williams involved in some capacity. The trailer should be coming soon.

 

The below is promo art that leaked.

I believe that it wasn't released by Disney/Lucasfilm, that doesn't mean it's not real though. Lucasfilm asked a few sites to remove the image.

Lego sets have leaked which confirm the above art is real.

 

Look at your own risk, you may find these images disturbing.

 

 

Spoiler

 

Now we know what those special modifications are

WTF at that 

Spoiler

Falcon. This movie has a lot of explaining to do with that.

It looks like a cereal box. 

 

As for the Falcon, that's in keeping with the design from Revenge of the Sith when it made a brief cameo:

That was from one of the art books. The front between the mandibles was always supposed to be able to open/close. Narratively I'd imagine they'll present the Falcon as a new ship with Lando as the owner and that function will eventually cease working. A new Falcon would be interesting considering how much its referred to as a hunk of junk in the core films.:)

The front of the ship looks like it's mostly the right length in the art book (the Lego is a little stubby), but with some extra bits in between the mandibles.  Maybe this will get trimmed/broken off at some point in the movie?

My son has the Falcon’s Haynes Manual - that basic layout comes in a whole bunch of different options, with either shuttle craft, additional cargo or attachments for heavy tug lifters fitting there.

It will probably look better in the film, I hope there's not a "wink at the audience" moment though 

 

Here's a larger version of the promo art which gives a better view.

Rumor is a 45 second tease will be the first commercial during the second commercial break during the Super Bowl.

EW Story

 

Quote

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy describes Solo as “a heist, gunslinger type movie.” That roller coaster-like train in the trailer is called The Conveyex, and Han has to prove his hoodlum bona fides by stealing something (we don’t know what) from on board.

Eh, looks ok. I can't say anything shown has increased or decreased my already "meh" excitement level for it from the moment it was announced.

Personally, that trailer's helped my enthusiasm a lot. It was at pretty much zero as a comedy, but I'll take a Leone Western tribute complete with train job.

Didn't do a thing for me.  Depends what is happening when it comes out will help decide if I go see it or not.  TLJ still has me turned off to SW for now.
