“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 added of the Ron Howard-directed film.

While that’s not a lot of information, Star Wars fans have been waiting to hear what the solo project would be about since the director unveiled the title of the movie in a Twitter post last October, along with several other posts about the highly-anticipated film.


The movie features Alden Ehrenreich, who plays the 20-year-old version of Harrison Ford’s character, and Donald Glover, his pal/enemy Lando Calrissian, originally played by Billy Dee William in the earlier films.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” hits theaters May 25.
