Han Solo, a legendary character from the original Star Wars films, has got a spin-off totally dedicated to him. The new extended trailer of the film gives a better look at his character and also presents a new character Qi’ra, played by Emilia Clarke.

In the new 103-second trailer released on Monday, we get to see a glimpse of the supporting characters. In the franchise, through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his future co-pilot Chewbacca and the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian. At one point of time, he would also meet Q’ira.

Han Solo was played by Harrison Ford in the original trilogy, and in 2015’s The Force Awakens. Stepping into Ford’s shoes is Alden Ehrenreich, whose face we only catch a quick glimpse of right at the end.

The film’s production has been controversial. Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired off the project due to creative differences. They were replaced by Ron Howard, director of Apollo 13, The Da Vinci Code and other blockbusters, who was rumoured to have re-shot up to 80% of the film.

The film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Paul Bettany in important roles. It’s scheduled to hit the screens on May 25, 2018 in the US.

A teaser of Solo A Star Wars Story was also released during the Super Bowl, and it’s now among the most tweeted videos. The trailer for Solo: Star Wars Story is getting the most Twitter attention so far, followed by Wendy’s attack ad against McDonald’s.

Here are some new posters:
