Star Wars fans are going to see Han Solo’s(Alden Ehrenreich) beginnings in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and knowing the smuggler’s origin story, it’s hard to imagine the spin-off without Chewie (Joonas Suotamo), Lando (Donald Glover, and of course, the iconic YT-1300f light freighter, the Millennium Falcon.

Now, as Solo: A Star Wars Story approaches its premiere date, fans get to hear the very first mention of the Falcon in a new TV spot for the highly anticipated Star Wars spinoff.

Though most of the shots have been featured in other previews for Solo, we get to see a few new sequences including the very first mention of the Falcon in the marketing for the film.

The Falcon has been the talk of the town ever since marketing for Solo began. Not only does the YT freighter have a different coloring than what fans have become accustomed to in the original and sequel trilogies, it also has a fuller shape with a cargo hold.

That’s not all. Glover also told publications at a Television Critics Association press conference how fans are going to get to see a new Millennium Falcon shot sequence in Solo, something that’s never been seen in any other Star Wars film.

"I remember going on set one of the first times, [Ron Howard] was like, ‘Yeah, I want to follow you onto the Millennium Falcon and do this thing,’” Glover shared. “I was like, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen the outside go into the inside.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, no one’s ever done that shot.’ As a fan, I was like yeah, I was really excited. I know there’s been a lot of talk in the press about this movie but for me anyway, it was a dream and also it looks really cool to me.”

It’s definitely exciting thinking about all the new things we’re going to get to see in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits cinemas May 25, 2018.
