After the dust-up surrounding the director chair swap was finally settled, and filming was completed, SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY is shaping up to look pretty darn good. Our interest was piqued a few months ago when the teaser debuted. However, now we’ve got a terrific new trailer to “ooh” and “awww” over.

Watch as Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) walks through the Millennium Falcon’s (CLEAN!!!!) corridors for the first time! See Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) smolder! And find out the mystery of Chewbacca’s age!

Here’s the official (and VERY vague synopsis):

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 befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

Look. They had us at Glover as Lando. And I mean look at these stills. Aren’t YOU sold too?!
