“Where the hell is the trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story?”

That’s the question we’ve been asking ourselves since the beginning of the year. Understandably, Disney did not release a trailer for the film at the end of last year. After all, they wanted to focus the attention on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and let’s face it, Solo: A Star Wars Story had been through the wringer.

After switching up directors and going through an extensive reshoot, it was understandable that they wouldn’t have anything to show at that time just yet. But here we are, now in February. It’s less than FOUR MONTHS from the release of the film, and there’s still nothing to show for it. Apart from a half-assed synopsis and a logo, they’ve given no indication that this flick is even remotely close to being done.

Well, it sounds like we may get our first taste of the film soon. According to industry insiders, the film will drop its first ad for the game during the Super Bowl this coming Sunday.

Hopefully, when we do see the trailer, it’ll be all the more clear why they didn’t push the film’s release date. Given all the movie’s been through, and the fact that all the recent Star Wars films up to this point have had a holiday release (not to mention Star Wars: Episode IX getting a holiday release in 2019), we would have forgiven Lucasfilm for pushing this one to ensure its quality. However, with posters out, and this rumored trailer just around the corner, it sounds like they’re really committing to that May 25 date.
