Han's friendship with Lando has always been a complicated mess in the original trilogy and now it looks like a new TV spot for Solo: A Star Wars Story's shows how that relationship begins with a pretty rocky start in Lucasfilm's new Star Wars spinoff.

Solo is just a little over a month away from its premiere date and Lucasfilm's been busy trickling out promotional material for the upcoming standalone film.


A few days ago the studio released a Solo TV spot centered around the friendship between Han (Alden Ehrenreich) and Chewie (Joonas Suotamo). Now, Lucasfilm has a brand preview, this time featuring the beginnings of young Han's friendship with Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).

The suave gambler doesn't seem too happy being introduced to Han and Chewie by Emilia Clarke's Qi'ra. Though Lando nicknames the two as "Hairy and the Boy," it seems like Lando learns how to work together with Han, fighting side by side at the very end of the TV spot.

There's a lot of Lando in the preview, and it's definitely interesting to note that Glover pronounces Han's name just the same way Billy Dee Williams does in the original Star Wars trilogy. Then again, Glover's always been a big Star Wars fan.

Here's the synopsis for Solo:
