solo a star wars story trailer debut

Update: It turns out that everyone was one day off. It now looks like the Solo trailer will debut on Good Morning America this Monday, February 5. Our original article follows.

“Where’s the Solo trailer?” has been the resounding question in the sci-fi fan community for the past few months. The Star Wars standalone film is merely four months away from release, and we haven’t heard a peep out of Lucasfilm or Disney — highly unusual for a tentpole film in one of the biggest franchises in the world.

Star Wars Sabacc

Disney, who now own literally everything along with Star Wars, have filed a federal trademark lawsuit in an effort to stop a mobile app game based on Sabacc, a card game that was created for the Star Wars universe.

Today Ron Howard is an accomplished director who first got his start in show business as a child actor on classic television shows like The Andy Griffith Show. But we never would have seen the Happy Days star turn into the Oscar-winning director of A Beautiful Mind if it wasn’t for the career of his father, Rance Howard. Sadly, the veteran actor who appeared in several of his son’s films has passed away at 89. We remember the life and career of Rance Howard below. Read More »

We’ve heard plenty about next year’s new Star Wars spin-off focusing on Han Solo. After a troubled production saw directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller let go from the project, only to be replaced by director Ron Howard, the film wrapped back in October and was finally given the official title of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Han Solo Lord and Miller footage

Star Wars fans were caught by surprise over the summer when Lucasfilm fired directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller from the Star Wars spin-off film Solo: A Star Wars Story. Lord and Miller were replaced with Ron Howard, who reshot a large chunk of Solo, but Lord and Miller’s work will apparently still have a presence in the film: co-star Thandie Newton has just confirmed that at least 90% of her scenes were shot by the duo.
