Our long national nightmare is almost over. Following reports that Disney is set to air an ad for Solo: A Star Wars Story during this Sunday’s Super Bowl, we now learn that the full trailer will debut on ABC’s Good Morning America the following morning. GMA is touting the exclusive trailer reveal to people seeking tickets for Monday’s taping.
This does not mean there will not be a Super Bowl spot for Solo on Sunday. It does mean, however, that there will not be a full trailer on Sunday. Whatever is shown on Sunday, if anything is shown at all, will more than likely plug the trailer launch for Monday.

The lack of any teaser, trailer, or official image for Solo with less than four months to go before its release has fueled speculation that Disney and Lucasfilm are not happy with that they have. It certainly does not help that most of the movie had to be reshot after original director Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired and Ron Howard was brought in.
Star Alden Ehrenreich already had a difficult task in playing the character Harrison Ford turned into an icon. All the drama behind the scenes has made that job even harder and with his performance rumored to be one of the issues that led to the director change, fans will be watching him very closely on Sunday and Monday.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is in theaters May 25.
