For the first time at a CinemaCon, Disney showed extended footage from a Star Wars film, and, of course, it’s for the May 25 release Solo: A Star Wars Story. In the past, the studio typically relied on trailers of Force Awakens, Rogue One and Last Jedi.
In the clip unveiled today during the Disney’s presentation to exhibitors, Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra leads Han and Chewie into a cantina that’s in shambles situated on a snowy planet. She boasts about how Lando won his ship playing Sabaack, a card game, and Han is hardly threatened by that. Han then begins to beat Lando hand by hand until Lando wagers the Millennium Falcon. “I can take him, let me at him,” says Han. Donald Glover sounds precisely like Billy Dee Williams. “Everything you heard about me is true,” Lando tells Han while warning him, “You might want to quit while you’re ahead.” The clip goes to black before it’s revealed who wins (but we know who that is).
Earlier today, it was reported that Alden Ehrenreich had signed up for three Solo films; Disney made no mention about additional Stars Wars movies on its release timeline today outside of Star Wars: Episode IX, which is due next year.
