Who is Han Solo? After all these years, we think we know. But the expanded teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story suggests otherwise.

“I may be the only person who knows what you are,” Emilia Clarke’s femme fatale character tells him.

We get a grin from Alden Ehrenreich. It’s not the same half-smile, but it’s familiar enough. “What’s that?”

Even Solo may not fully see himself.

With this trailer (above), we get a little more of a window into the May 25 film: An alien horde, hostile otherworldly landscapes, galactic speakeasies, and a young guy trying to survive in a universe full of people ready to kill you.

“I’ve been running scams on the street since I was 10,” we hear him say. “Kicked out of the Flight Academy for having a mind of my own.”
