Every time a trailer for a new Star Wars film arrives, fans understandably start to over-analyze every single frame. The Star Wars subreddit, in particular, goes into full-on detective mode looking for hints in the smallest of places. Now, hours after the trailer arrived for the second standalone Star Wars movie, Solo, we've already got a number of theories and astute observations from dedicated fans. Reddit user n1407 has found what they believe to be an easter egg, or a really weird indication of where the plot for the new film is going.
Pointing toward a very brief shot from the trailer which shows a droid surrounded by monitors, n1407 noted how one of those screens features a familiar image. The shot, which is highlighted closely in the Reddit post, seems to show a pivotal scene near the end of The Last Jedi featuring Luke Skywalker. It's difficult to make out, but who knows at this point?
Plenty of Reddit users are taking offense at the idea of such a continuity error, what with Solo being a prequel to the original Star Wars trilogy, while others have pointed out this could be nothing more than a nod to the previous entry in the franchise. Rian Johnson referenced 2016's Rogue One, after all, in 2017's Last Jedi, and both he and Rogue director Gareth Edwards made a cameo in the other's film.
And plenty others aren't taking it seriously at all.
Sunday night during the Super Bowl, Disney teased the first trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Monday morning they delivered the full thing. Featuring glimpses of Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian and plenty of grinning from the movie's star, Alden Ehrenreich, it offers a tantalizing glimpse at the upcoming blockbuster, due May 25.
