As shared by, the plot teases first introductions, “daring escapades” and a journey that “sets the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.”

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. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.

It was reported earlier this year that another classic Star Wars character might be making a return to the big screen in the Han Solo movie: That’s right, Darth Vader.

“A source close to the production has revealed to us that someone… was on the set of Howard’s Han Solo reshoots in Darth Vader’s armor as recently as two weeks ago.”

Heck yes.

It's the second in an anthology of stand alone Star Wars movies. The first movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was released in December of 2016. The Guardian reported back in September that a third movie is set for 2020.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to be released May 25—and we have to be getting a full-length trailer soon!
