Han Solo and Chewbacca are besties. Not a controversial statement by any stretch of the imagination. The dudes spent decades together and were practically common law married by the time Solo met the end of the lightsaber in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It was a love story that outlasted Solo’s affair with Leia, and is one for the ages.
It makes sense that the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story would have at least some focus on that. In a new TV spot, we get to see just a little bit more of that dynamic, and as an eternal skeptic of this film, I quite enjoyed it. More than anything, I really liked that long moment where he shows Chewie his hand while playing cards (way to fail at your poker face, Chewie!).
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 befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
