We've still got two weeks to wait until we get to see all of Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters, but this week in particular has been kind to fans in the form of several new clips giving us an early peek at the story of everyone's favorite smuggler. Between Tuesday night and Wednesday evening alone we got three new clips, and thanks to the film's stars making the rounds on late night talk shows we now have two more.
First up, Han Solo himself, Alden Ehrenreich, dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss landing the role, working with Chewbacca, and keeping his casting secret, and he brought along a bit of new footage. In this clip, we finally get to see a little more of the mysterious new villain known as Enfys Nest, as Han, Val (Thandie Newton), Tobias (Woody Harrelson), and Q'ira (Emilia Clarke) all face off with the character on a beach. Tobias, being the more experienced criminal, seems to have matters well in hand, but Han just can't help trying out a little tough talk of his own. It doesn't work out, as the aspiring smuggler is let down by what looks like his own future ship, the Millennium Falcon.
The second clip comes courtesy of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday to talk about her role as L3-37, Lando Calrissian's (Donald Glover) droid companion and his co-pilot aboard the Falcon. Waller-Bridge talked about, among other things, the difficulties that came with performing the character on set, half in droid parts and half in a green-screen bodysuit, then also gave us a new glimpse of L3 in action.
As you'll see in the clip, Han Solo may be the Falcon's future pilot, but he's not ready to fill L3's seat yet. Oh, and Lando has, perhaps unsurprisingly, a bit of an odd, even flirtatious, relationship with his droid.
Though they're not as laden with effects as some of the other clips have been, these particular looks at the film are really playing up the comedy element, showing us a Solo who's very much in over his head and expanding on what we know so far about his supporting cast. Hopefully we'll see more clips in the weeks to come, but even if we don't, the wait for Solo is almost over.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is in theaters May 25.
