Dammit, Solo. I’ve been very critical of this film for a long time. Ever since it was first announced, I expressed my disinterest in seeing a film that will likely just reiterate the things I already imagined happening — or things I’ve read in the expanded universe. Of course, things would be slightly different, but I knew that Lucasfilm would feel the need to show things like Han meeting Lando and Chewie, Han getting the Millennium Falcon, and Han doing the Kessel Run — that it would basically be a checklist of things fans would stereotypically want to talk about.

And yeah, I was pretty much right on the money, with all my fears confirmed for Solo: A Star Wars Story. What I didn’t expect was that I would find myself stupidly falling for all the fan service scattered about the film in everything we’ve seen so far. Now, in this new clip from the film, we see them going through what we can assume is the Kessel Run (though that hasn’t been confirmed).

In the clip, we get a moment where Chewie steps in as the co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon for the first time. But that’s not all. There’s also the return of the beloved asteroid field song from The Empire Strikes Back, and as much as I hate to say it, it’s all working for me. It’s like how in Rogue One I didn’t want to see Darth Vader, but I couldn’t help but love those last five minutes of the film…it’s that all over again.

What do you think of the new clip for Solo: A Star Wars Story? Are you also stupidly falling victim to their schemes like I am? Let us know your thoughts down below!
