He shot others (yes he dropped off his second trailer yet) on Sunday with a new look at Solo: A Star Wars Story. 19659004] The trailer comes seven weeks before the movie May 25, showing chemistry between Han (Alden Ehrenreich), his future friend Lando (Donald Glover) and his best friend Chewie (Joonas Suotamo). The team at Heat Vision has embarked on the Millennium Falcon to break it down, so let's hit it and come to the discussion.

Erik Hayden: The western Samurai picture, furious fur jacket Snowtroopers with metal boots, a Star Destroyer built over a fake industrial Corellia and the musty set-up for a game Sabacc with Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian can be the cause of careful optimism. But the guitar rifle in charge of the action in the trailer seems unscathed, like the cartoon logo for the movie Solo title (a lot of Lego, ironically). I did not see Greedo in the trailer, he must be there, right?

Graeme McMillan: I'm honest: One of the most surprising things about the trailer is the music. It felt like someone had the orders, "Think what the child in Firefly s theme song and the theme Star Wars would sound like, and play it a little." It was distracting in how different it was, but it was also one of the few things about the trailer that did not feel I had seen it (heard it) before. There is a lot about how disappointing Solo 's previous trailers have been that this is the best but still superior but still great when taken alone. There is a lot to enjoy in the new trailer. Not least, Donald Glovers " Everything you heard about me is true" and heard Phoebe Waller-Bridges L3-37 for the first time – but overall, I still feel very upset of it all. Am I alone?

Ryan Parker: Not least, Graeme. I'm psyched for Glover's Lando, but it's about it. Really do not try to be a hater. I just do not know the same level of bubbling nerd responsibility for the movie as I have every other Star Wars installment. And that's not all of Aldens fault. I honestly believe that he was sent a stupid case trying to play one of the most faithful characters in the sci-fi story that really only one can ever pull off.

Aaron Couch: We must watch the film and performances to really make an assessment. I think of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek which had fun younger versions of iconic characters. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban and the rest all were less accepted – and Spock and Kirk are probably as iconic as Han Solo. So why does not it work for you so far Ryan? Are there any rules on what roles can be reworked and who can not?

Parker: Excellent question. Harrison Ford did not try to be Han Solo, he was only. Ford said in previous interviews he only understood exactly who the guy was while testing opposite other actors for roles in A New Hope . There is a charm and charisma that only Ford has. And Star Wars fans are very protective of this character, more than anyone else, in my opinion. So the tires are stacked against any actor who would try to fill in these shoes.

McMillan: Has not Star Trek received purists unbelievably suspicious before the movie came out too? I think the evidence will ultimately be in the final product, but I think there is something to say that Alden is prepared for failure by coming in as the new guy immediately after Ford's version of the character. Fans did not even have a chance to spoil properly! They are still in the denial phase. Mainly by denying Alden. Soffa: Many purists consider Rogue One to be the best Star Wars movie since Lucasfilm bought Disney, but although they are hard for me to become so excited about Star Wars Story movies that I make for Skywalker saga deductions. I see Solo and Rogue One as bonus movies. I will not be invested in them the same way. It also means that I will not be as critical to them. If it turns out fun … good! If not, I will not be broken. I also have a soft spot for movies with the drama behind the scene – I entered Justice League and shouted for it and ended up doing well, and I want the same. So far, the Chewie moments and Lando scenes look like they will make it worth the price of admission. "Everything You Heard About Me Is True" must be one of the best lines in a Star Wars trailer ever. When Glover met Billy Dee Williams a year ago, he had a long spell of theories about the character, and the original Lando apparently showed the young actor this: "Yes, I do not know that at all. Just be charming." Mission completed.

Lauren Huff : It's fun telling you about the drama behind the scene, Aaron, because it has had the opposite effect on me. As much as I dig Ron Howard, the last minute director has left a bad taste in my mouth and a worrying pit in my stomach. He Solo is such an iconic character, and I want this movie to make him right, but I'm somewhere between seriously worried and cautiously optimistic about this.

McMillan: The most inexplicable moment of the trail: It's a prequel and a based around knowing these characters when they're older. That's why joke like "I have a very good feeling for this!" country. (It's also a good joke.) So why quit a "Is Chewbacca going to survive?!?" Cliffhanger? Of course he is. There was really no better scene to stop? They should have saved the good feeling joke to the end, let's be honest.

Parker: I thus saw "what's going to happen to Chewie?" moment as kicker. I mean come on again. I rolled my eyes. Not the best way to lure me to see this picture. Now does Chewie pick someone up from the ground of his arms …? It's a kicker!

Huff : The thing that is not right with me about all the trailers so far (and this is definitely the best part of the party) is that I still think I have no idea how the movie is about. I'm in need of privacy, and a personal pet is when trailers give away the whole movie of the movie, but the approach they've taken so far makes everything feel meaningless to me. It's about me. Is it just me?

Sofa: I suppose the plot is He becomes part of a heist? I'm not worried about the details of scarcity. Some things I learned from the trailer: Chewie is super old and maybe had a wife? I've never seen Holiday Special so do not let me know in the comments not knowing he had a wife.]

Huff : Who knew they would give Chewie a backstory here too? Now like I am excited about. For as beloved as Chewie, we hardly know anything about him. Even C-3PO got a story because of stories in the stories!

McMillan: One last thing: After looking at this, we can all agree that everyone would rather watch a Lando and L3-37 movie, right? [19659019] Solo: A Star Wars Story
