In what has become the strangest news story about Star Wars in the existence of the franchise, the lack of a trailer for one specific film has created more conversation than perhaps the existence of footage for a film everyone is excited about. With roughly four months until it is thought to released, Solo: A Star Wars Story still hasn’t revealed any footage to the public. And now, there’s a fan-made Twitter account specifically documenting this Millennium Falcon-shaped void. And guess what? He loves Rogue One.

The Twitter account @Solomovieyet is a great example of contemporary minimalist internet humor. Obviously, when the trailer drops, the joke is kind of over. But that’s okay. “I started this account to make the wait a little more funny,” Enrique Delgadillo tells Inverse. He’s the guy behind the “Is the Solo Trailer Out Yet?” Twitter account and he lives in Paraguay, South America. “I think that Star Wars fans — all of us — really demand a lot. There’s only four months for the movie and we have nothing. And I just thought: just make it funny.”

Delgadillo has succeeded there, again, with expertly placed minimalist deadpan humor. Today, @Solomovieyet just tweeted one word “No.” Yesterday it was “Nope.”

From his point of view, Delgadillo thinks “all the movies are really good,” but believes the franchise needs newer, more inventive films to continue to stay relevant. “Works like Rogue One is what we need, Gareth Edwards did a really great work,” he says.

For now, Delgadillo is reserving judgment on whether or not Solo, or its trailer, will be any good. “I really want to watch the trailer first before I throw any opinion,” he says. “But, I admit it will be really interesting to watch Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke in a Star Wars movie, I think their roles are gonna be really good.”

For now, if you want to make sure you know when the Solo trailer actually drops, Delgadillo might be the only newsfeed you need to watch.


Solo: A Star Wars Story is still slated for a May 25, 2018 release, despite the trailer still being mysteriously lost in hyperspace.

When news broke on Monday afternoon that Stan Lee had died, it only took a few minutes for lengthy obituaries to hit the internet. Lee would have been pleased. In a 1995 appearance on the Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Lee talked about his past career as a freelance obituary writer (yes, seriously), and revealed how they get those obituaries up so fast.

Just before the Black Friday and holiday shopping rush, we’ve found maybe the ultimate gift (for a loved one or even just yourself) this year: The actual watch from the movie Jaws. It’s gorgeously vintage with a modern build, and it’s on sale right now on our favorite lifestyle shopping site Huckberry.

Did you all forget that Ryan Reynolds (and not Danny Devito) is voicing Pikachu in the live-action movie POKÉMON Detective Pikachu? Well, he is, and there is an honest to goodness trailer to prove it. Also, there are like five characters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the film, if you want to be technical about it.

What if Rey’s real purpose in the universe is to bring balance to the Force by ending the Skywalker lineage? That’s the crux of a new Star Wars: Episode IX fan theory that essentially labels her the Antichrist, but not in the satanic sense.

On Thursday, redditor u/McSlever posted a complex new Star Wars theory to the r/FanTheories subreddit titled “Rey the Anti-Christ (Star Wars Theory)”. McSlever fuses together a smattering of theories we’ve heard before: Snoke is Darth Plagueis, Anakin was immaculately conceived, Rey has no real parents, etc. It relies heavily on Palpatine’s quote from Revenge of the Sith: “Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith so powerful and so wise, he could use the Force to influence the Midi-chlorians to create … life.” The assumption is that before even the prequel trilogy, Darth Plagueis created Anakin as a Christ-like figure to eradicate the Jedi and the Sith.
