The first trailer for ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ aired during Super Bowl 52

Among the commercials aired on NBC during Super Bowl 52: a 45-second trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the Star Wars origin story about character Han Solo that’s set to come out later this year. It’ll be the first public glimpse anywhere of the film.

It’ll be a flashback movie, as is common in Star Wars.

A brief synopsis, via IMDB:

During an adventure into a dark criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his future copilot Chewbacca and encounters Lando Calrissian years before joining the Rebellion.

Solo later becomes a key member of the Rebellion. He has a son named Ben with Princess Leia Organa, who grows up to become the likely evil (but still maybe good?) Kylo Ren, who plays a key part in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, two of the three most recent Star Wars movies to come out. Harrison Ford usually plays Solo, but Alden Ehrenreich has the role in the upcoming movie. Its release date is May 25.
