Awestruck Han Solo and Chewbacca lay eyes on the Millennium Falcon for the first time in the action-packed trailer for "Solo: A Star Wars Story" that landed Sunday night.
"I've got a really good feeling about this," the exuberant Han (Alden Ehrenreich) proclaims in the cockpit, reversing the beloved scoundrel's signature catchphrase.
The teaser for the latest prequel shows the ace pilot enlisting for his first job -- not to mention lifestyle -- as an intergalactic smuggler.
"I'm a driver and I'm a flyer," he declares, despite a weary Tobias Beckett's (Woody Harrelson) admonition that "if you come with us, you're in this life for good."
Beckett seems to love doling out foreshadowing advice too, later telling Han to "assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed." The "Star Wars" prequels are rife with those betrayals. We see you, Kylo Ren.
Co-pilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), who's apparently 190 years old, is just one of the familiar faces seen in the trailer. A suave, young Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) puts the "rough around the edges" Han in his place in their first bar-room exchange.
"Everything you've heard about me is true," the gambler quips.
The trailer also features Paul Bettany as big-shot gangster Dryden Vos, Emilia Clarke as the enigmatic Qi'ra and the droid L3-37, voiced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
"Solo," directed by Ron Howard, is to debut at the Cannes Film Festival next month and launch into theaters on May 25.
