As Han says in the new trailer, “I thought we were in trouble for a second, but it’s fine.” The first length trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story has finally arrived after months of fan speculation. But how does it look? If there’s one word to describe it, it’s “lighthearted,” which might be what the Star Wars franchise needs after the dourness of both Rogue One and The Last Jedi. After all, fans know this Star Wars film probably won’t make them cry anything but tears of nostalgic joy. Famously, everyone lost it when Han Solo and Chewbacca returned in the 2015 trailer for The Force Awakens. Does everyone feel that way now though? Can we accept Alden Ehrenreich as a young Harrison Ford?

On Monday, following the brief 45-second teaser that aired during the Super Bowl, the first full-length trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story debuted on Good Morning America. This trailer is different from the Super Bowl trailer in one big way. It’s not framed by Han Solo talking to a recruiter from the Empire, but instead, seems to flash forward to a point where he was no longer working for the Empire. There’s also just a lot more footage of everything, plus the trailer suggests that the film will center around a heist or “job” put together by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and will be the reason why Han and Lando meet in the first place.

Though it contained a few of the same scenes from the Super Bowl teaser — including the fact that Han’s old-school backstory of being an Imperial pilot is totally happening — there was a lot more in this trailer. But the big difference was we a lot more of the new Han Solo’s face. We see him racing speeders when he’s young, and paling around with Chewbacca. How he got “kicked out of flight school” in the Empire remains to be seen.

The action and the beats in the trailer feel right, but now, fans are waiting to see if this Star Wars film is anything more than just an outer space romp with some familiar names. And, we’re obviously wondering if even more familiar names will crop up. Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt were nowhere in sight…yet.


Solo: A Star Wars Story is out everywhere on May 25, 2018. It is the first Star Wars movie to come out in May since Revenge of the Sith in 2005. Prior to The Force Awakens beginning the December trend in 2015, the six previous Star Wars films, prior to the Disney take over, were all released in May.

We’re all in the Long Night while waiting on Game of Thrones Season 8. Now, possibly out of desperation, one fan has cooked up a horribly tragic theory about how Jon Snow will have to become the Night King to stop his undead army. If true, this would reshape everything we know about the Night King, Azor Ahai, and how the series will end.

Stranger Things Season 3 is set to release some time next summer. That’s a long time to wait before we can finally head back to 1980s Hawkins, Indiana, but in the meantime, a new interview with David Harbour (Jim Hopper on the Netflix series) is offering fans a taste of what’s to come when the Stranger Things Season 3 release date finally arrives.

This is some multi-reality brain magic shit.” Emma Stone’s words in the new trailer for Maniac, an upcoming Netflix original series, seem to do a pretty good job of encapsulating the plot. Created by Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (It, True Detective Season 1), and starring Stone, Jonah Hill, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux, Maniac looks like a cross between Inception and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In other words, it looks awesome.

The upcoming live-action Star Wars show will cost a whole bunch of Credits — or perhaps a whole bunch of Gold Dragons. The reported budget for Jon Favreau’s 10-episode series is $100 million, or about $10 million per episode. That puts the show on par with Game of Thrones, HBO’s tremendously expensive (and popular) fantasy series.

It’s almost time for back to school — Huntress school, that is. At RTX 2018, Rooster Teeth Animation announced the release date of the next season of the studio’s crown jewel, western anime RWBY.

RWBY Volume 6 will premiere October 27. And in an interview with Inverse, series star Lindsay Jones (the voice of Ruby Rose) reveals that Volume 6 will see the reunion of Team RWBY. The story will also build upon the significant growth of the characters from Volumes 4 and 5.
