Alden Ehrenreich debuts as Han Solo in a new trailer for what’s being described as a Star Wars “Space Western.” It showcases Solo’s back story as a young space outlaw roaming the universe with trusty sidekick Chewbacca.

The film, directed by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Ron Howard, is a knock off of the “Star Wars” series.

The second Star Wars anthology film, follows 2016’s “Star Wars: Rogue One.” The stand-alone features are all set prior to the events of the original 1977 blockbuster.

Woody Harrelson, who manages to worm his way into nearly every dystopian disaster movie, will co-star along with Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, and Emilia Clarke of “Game of Thrones” fame.

Harrison Ford was iconic as the original Han Solo and Belly Dee Williams previously played Lando.

The movie will kick off summer blockbuster season. It hits theaters May 25
