New “Solo: A Star Wars Story” Clip: “190 Years Old”

Chewbacca knows his way around a cockpit

Spoilers for Solo: A Star Wars Story ahead…

The #StarWarsDay gifts just keep coming. The official Star Wars YouTube account has added yet another new clip from Solo: A Star Wars Story.  This time, they fleshed out a short clip already seen in TV spots and trailers:

CNET explained the significance of the scene:

Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) learns that his new BFF Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) is 190 years old and looks great (for reference, Wookieepedia says Wookiees have an average lifespan of 400 years)… Now we know the moment comes as Han and Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) are piloting the Millennium Falcon around space rocks while a TIE fighter pursues them. Han asks for power to be diverted to the “rear deflector shield” and Chewie immediately goes to work, surprising Han who wonders how the Wookiee knew how to fly. Qi’ra then immediately stands up and lets Chewbacca co-pilot away…

Here’s hoping we have a few more clips like this before May 24. JB
