UPDATE: Disney and Lucasfilm have confirmed to Screen Rant that the Solo: A Star Wars Story promo art seen below is not official. The original story is as follows.
We now have our first look at Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover as Han Solo and Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The image, which surfaced online on a Russian licensing page, show off the new faces playing familiar characters along with Chewbacca and a slightly different Millenium Falcon. Check it out below:

The Falcon is sporting the blue accents glimpsed in Revenge of the Sith, while this image also features our first look at Emilia Clarke’s character. Han looks to have another new jacket, while Lando appears to still be wearing a trademark cape.
While the page is in Russian, there is a translation that describes what we can expect from the film:
“Solo is an exciting story about intergalactic adventures, telling the adventures of young Han Solo, about how he got into difficult situations and found an outlet from them, as he became a smuggler, a rebel, a bully, a hero, whom we all love.”
This is only the beginning for materials related to the next Star Wars release. A trailer is rumored to be coming soon, and along with it will surely be a flood of new images, clips, and more from the making of the film.
