Original story: Football is cool and all, but this year the Super Bowl is code for Star Wars, baby! We’ve yet to see any official promo for Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, but Sunday’s game finally brought the very first look at the Han Solo spinoff. Please meet young Solo.
And young Lando (Donald Glover), sporting one hell of a coat (please tell me that’s not made from Wookiee fur), and young Chewie (Joonas Suatomo) — basically all the young versions of your Star Wars faves. The first teaser trailer for Solo was certainly worth the wait — though it seems like they’re going to make us wait a little longer for a proper look at Alden Ehrenreich as the eponymous scruffy nerf herder. Ehrenreich’s face is only glimpsed ONCE in the first teaser, but we do get plenty of this guy and aforementioned swanky-ass coat:

Here’s the official synopsis:
