Fans are still waiting to learn more about Solo: A Star Wars Story, as many only got their first glance of footage from the movie when the trailer debuted during the Super Bowl last month. Though Lucasfilm prepped a double whammy with the first short teaser and a more substantial trailer released right after, fans still don't know much about the movie's plot.

The film is supposed to be taking place more than a decade before the events of the original Star Wars movie, showing how Han Solo become one of the most infamous smugglers in the galaxy.

Instead of being an "origin story" for the character played by Alden Ehrenreich, however, it will actually be an intergalactic heist movie set in the Star Wars galaxy.

Actor Emilia Clarke, who will be playing Han's friend Qi'ra in the film, gave some insight into her character which actually revealed a little bit about the film's storyline.

""The point where you meet her, she is with Han. They are both doing what they've got to do to survive," Clarke said to Entertainment Weekly. "And that is Qi'ra the whole the movie. The whole way through, she is surviving. And surviving in the underworld that we know to be [filled with] smuggling, aloof gamblers, wrong-side-of-the-tracks nasty ones. It was beautiful they touched on it very briefly [in The Last Jedi] when they are at the racetracks."

Donald Glover, who will play the role of Lando Calrissian in the movie, promised Solo: A Star Wars Story will be a "more fun" than other films in the franchised.

"I think it's just a lot more fun. All the Star Wars [movies] are really fun but I think this movie, we know what's going to happen, we know they're not going to die, ya know?" Glover said to Entertainment Tonight. "We know, kind of, what happens, but how we got there, I guess, is the crux of it. So we're allowed to have a lot more fun than I think the other movies where you have to deal with a lot of the lineage in what's going to happen. I think this movie's, like, just a fun, summer film. I'm really excited about it. It's really cool."

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