Now that the Solo: A Star Wars Story teaser has been unveiled, you can relive all the best moments with our gallery of screenshots. The past 24 hours have been quite the rollercoaster for Star Wars fans thanks to the official kick off of the Han Solo movie's marketing. After a bevy of behind-the-scenes problems, from directorial changes to actor issues, fans were justifiably curious whether the latest anthology film would truly arrive this summer given no teaser or poster had been released. That all changed last night, however, when the Solo: A Star Wars Story Super Bowl teaser finally gave us a glimpse of Ron Howard's upcoming prequel.
Before some fans likely had a chance to even watch the TV spot, the full Solo: A Star Wars Story teaser dropped this morning and expanded what we saw last night. From the introduction of new characters played by Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Thandie Newton, to our first official look at young versions of Han, Lando, and Chewie (and the Millennium Falcon), there was a lot to unpack. With just a little over three months until the film's release, a full trailer can't be far off. Until then, we can dig deeper into the teaser.
While a full-length Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer will better clue us into the film's plot, the teaser offers a lot to be excited about—and a few things to worry about. Until we see the film, of course, we won't be able to fully judge how well the new takes on characters like Han and Lando work. Luckily, the teaser provides an intriguing look at some new corners of the Star Wars galaxy. Check out our screenshot gallery below for all the key moments:

The focus on the first two teasers will naturally be Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, but the Internet has already made it clear who the star of the film will be. Fans have been disappointed that Lando hasn't returned in the new Star Wars films, but they seem overjoyed with the few glimpses of Donald Glover as the ne'er-do-well in the teasers. The Super Bowl spot showed off young Lando still had the sartorial sense of his more familiar counterpart, and the scenes of him in today's trailer have already become the go-to GIFs for both fans and journalists.
We also get a sense of the world Solo: A Star Wars Story will inhabit. From new ships and droids to sparkling clean interiors, Howard's film seems to balance the best parts of Rogue One and the Prequels in painting the galaxy far, far away in the years before A New Hope. And like the best Star Wars films, there's going to be a mysteriously armored character with plenty of actions shots. Hopefully, they'll get more to do than both Boba Fett and Captain Phasma have.
The back-to-back teasers weren't the only things the marketing campaign have given fans. Solo: A Star Wars Story character posters were released today as well, spotlighting Han, Lando, Chewie and Clarke's Qi'Ra. Like the other new characters, not much is known about Qi'Ra, but it can't be long now until we get a sense of what role she'll play in the film. Until then, fans should have plenty to theorize over while they wait for the full Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer.
