The first official sneak peek of the 'Star Wars' prequel shows Han being interviewed for a position at the Empire as well as offers a glimpse of Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.

AceShowbiz - The first official sneak peek of "Solo: A Star Wars Story" has arrived in the form of a teaser that was debuted during Super Bowl LII broadcast. The TV spot reveals that Han Solo almost went over to the dark side. In the ad, Han is seen trying to join the Empire as a pilot, being interviewed by an Imperial officer.

The video also offers a first look at Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian as well as a glimpse of Emilia Clarke as a new character named Kira, and Woody Harrelson as Han's mentor Tobias Beckett. Toward the end of the video, Chewbacca appears, standing next to Han as they stare at the vast ocean.

The full trailer will arrive on Monday on ABC's "Good Morning America". The film itself is set to open in theaters across the United States on May 25.

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" is billed as an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.

Alden Ehrenreich is cast as young Han Solo, with Joonas Suotamo reprising his "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" role as Chewbacca. Other actors starring in the "Star Wars" prequel are Thandie Newton, Paul Bettany, Warwick Davis, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Ian Kenny among others.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were initially tapped to direct the movie, but the pair left the project in June after reportedly being fired over "creative differences" with Lucasfilm. Ron Howard later took over the directing duty and allegedly had to reshoot "nearly all" of the film, doubling its budget. Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan wrote the script.
