The new trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story is great, it is fit as it is the story of how one guy became a hero despite constantly doing the wrong thing.

The story begins with something unusual for a Star Wars movie — the riff of an electric guitar. We get to see Corellia, Han Solo’s industrial home world, and the shipyards that are constructing Imperial Star Destroyers. It’s a hardscrabble life, one hero all him that at this point) is eager to escape.

The May 25 movie, from director Ron Howard, has a lot of heavy lifting to do. Alden Ehrenreich will be seen is the iconic role originated by Harrison Ford, Donald Glover is slipping into the part of Lando Calrissian, taking over for Billy Dee Williams, and a host of new characters are being introduced.

There’s the scarred crimelord Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany); The femme fatale Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke); the low-grade hoodlums Val and Tobias Beckett (Thandie Newton and Woody Harrelson); and the fearsome droid L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge.)

Beckett says to the young Solo that once he decides to go with the life of crime, he can’t will not be able to go back. Soon things go wrong. But Solo is fine with its wrongness. Solo even delivers a backwards twist on a familiar line: “I’ve got a really good feeling about this!”
