PHOENIX — The second trailer for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” dropped Sunday night, giving fans the freshest look at the film since its first ad debuted in early February.
Like the the first trailer, the second shows more of Alden Ehrenreich’s young Han Solo navigating grungy streets and the underground gambling parlors along them. But it gives viewers a deeper look at the character that in the first Star Wars trilogy was played by actor Harrison Ford.
“You’re after something. Is it revenge? Money? Or is it something else?” says Emilia Clarke, the actress who plays Solo-friend Qi’Ra and is most known for playing Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series “Game of Thrones.
The trailer also gives a biggest glimpse into how Solo meets the young Lando Calrissian, played by actor Donald Glover, and Chewbacca, who is revealed to be 190 years old when Solo questions his Wookie sidekick about his piloting resume.
“You look great,” Solo says.
After a 45-second ad for the latest “Star Wars” film played during the Super Bowl, a 90-second teaser trailer premiered a day later on “Good Morning America.” The footage showcased a gritty prequel featuring the snazzy interior of a then-new Millennium Falcon, the familiar growl of Chewbacca and a plethora of handsome fur coats.
The initial trailer for the film, to be released May 25, seemed intent on assuring fans that “Solo” will be a more typically somber chapter in the science-fiction franchise. Young Solo is shown as an ambitious flyboy who drops out of the fight academy and enlists with a rogue band led by Woody Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett.
