Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer – I’m still not sure

The first trailer has arrived for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and I’m still not completely sold.

There are certain parts of the Star Wars universe that you just don’t mess with, and one of those is the idea of anyone other than Harrison Ford playing Han Solo. That is no reflection on Alden Ehrenreich who will be taking on the role, but just the general idea of it. Han is that antihero that taught all of us who to love a scoundrel, and anyone trying to mimic him is just going to fall short I feel.

Here is the trailer, more thoughts in a moment.

I like the idea this appears to be a heist movie in an Oceans 11 kind of way. That makes a few things go down a bit easier, but some of those Han line deliveries… I’m sorry Ehrenreich, it’s not you, it’s a Star Wars purist shifting uncomfortably.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25.
