A historic but previously unseen moment from Star Wars history has been revealed in a new clip from the upcoming Han Solo movie.


In a scene that will send goosebumps down the spines of many a fan, Alden Ehrenreich’s Han finds the co-pilot and friend who will accompany him on future adventures in A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and beyond.

We’d already seen Han discover that Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) knows a little something about flying in the original trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, but in this extended scene the Wookie actually takes his rightful place in the Millennium Falcon’s co-pilot seat as it becomes clear that Emilia Clarke’s Kira is not such an expert…


Solo: A Star Wars Story is in UK cinemas from 24th May
