It looks like some marketing from the Land of the Rising Sun has trickled over, and we have a new international trailer for Disney and Lucasfilm’s upcoming space opera, Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Sadly, if you were hoping to get more footage than we’ve already seen, then you’re barking up the wrong tree. While there are slight differences in the edit, the actual shots shown here are nothing really new. All this really does is show off the slight title variations, with Japan calling the film Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (whoopee!).

But fret not. This wasn’t all they released. They also shared a snazzy new poster. In it, we see Han and Chewie walking side by side, ready to take on the galaxy. The dirt is rising up around them as the Millennium Falcon hovers above. As a piece of marketing, I find it quite effective, as it really covers the bases in terms of the space stuff and the western stuff.

Check it out:

Below is the official synopsis for Solo: A Star Wars Story:

“Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.”
