Lucasfilm just released their latest Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer. Along with the trailer they also released a brand new poster:
The poster shows off the main cast of characters. From left to right you can see the L3-37 robot played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Val played by Thandie Newton, Lando Calrissian played by Donald Glover, Qi-Ra played by Emilia Clarke, Han Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich, Chewbacca played by Joonas Suotamo, and Tobias Beckett played Woody Harrelson.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will tell the origin story of Han Solo as he goes on a journey into the criminal underground of the Star Wars universe. The movie will showcase Han Solo’s first encounters with Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, and the Millennium Falcon.
Not only will Han Solo meet these iconic characters, but it appears he will join Tobias Beckett’s crew and undertake at least one rather dangerous mission that will run him afoul of the Empire. It’s also more than likely that Solo will be double crossed by a number of Beckett’s crew which includes L3-37, Lando Calrissian, and Qi-Ra.
Director Ron Howard also confirmed the presence of Tag and Bink.

Tag and Bink were comic book characters who just happen to cross paths with every major Star Wars player. They end up in the wrong place at the wrong time and become heroes.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters on May 25, 2018. However, the film will be premiering early at the Cannes Film Festival.
