It’s been more than two months since we got the teaser trailer for the upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story” film so I was glad to see the first full official trailer being released just a short time ago. Since I want you all to see this, I will limit the proclamations for the time being. Indulge please.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As noted before, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” will be the fourth “Star Wars” franchise film in the span of four years so it appears we will be getting one “modern times” film every other year while a prequel film of some kind will come out on alternate years. I don’t mind this being the fashion that they are doing this because I like these look backs a lot more than the “what’s happening now” with the classic history story line. I recently purchased “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” on Blu-ray and have to say that I am still of the same mindset about it and felt it was an okay at best film and not the tremendous mind-blowing film that I had hoped it would be. I know people who are in disagreement with me on this stance so fight me ;p The longer trailer has firmed up some faith in me about this one because I was seeing some random rumblings about it online but let’s face it, thanks to the likes of Facebook and a million places to leave ones opinion – EVERYONE is a critic with commentary now. The longer trailer is pretty exciting and this film will open on the holiday weekend so I am sure that it will do gangbusters. There seem to be some cool new characters making a first appearance which I am sure the folks at Hasbro will jump on with their quality series of action figures. As I’ve a bit to do before the day ends completely, I’ll close out now by asking what you thought about the new trailer and what your interest level is. I’ve added the recently released poster below as well as an extra bonus. They shared some colorful character posters around the time of the teaser trailer and if you missed seeing them, just click HERE so you can see that post and those images as well. Farewell.
