‘Your name?’

After weeks of waiting, Disney has finally released the first official look at the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story , in the form of a brief teaser during this evening’s Super Bowl.

The teaser opens with an Imperial recruiting officer asking a recruit what branch he’s interested in joining, to which he’s told, “I’m going to be a pilot, the best in the galaxy.” Along the way, we get some glimpses of a new-looking Millennium Falcon, Woody Harrelson (playing a new character named Beckett), Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and a brief glimpse of the film’s titular character, played by Alden Ehrenreich. Interspersed throughout are some all-too-quick action scenes involving fighters, speeders, and some massive vehicles that look like Star Wars-ified trains.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit theaters this past December without a trailer for Solo, and until today Disney had remained utterly silent about the film. The wait hasn’t helped assauge concerns from fans after the film’s rocky production last year, which saw original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller fired in the final weeks of shooting. They were replaced by Apollo 13 director Ron Howard, who reportedly reshot a considerable amount of the film.

Today’s teaser might be thing, but we won’t have to wait too much longer to see a proper trailer. The official Star Wars Twitter account confirmed that it’s coming tomorrow on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th.
