New Solo: A Star Wars Story Themed Commercial Featuring Chewbacca, the Conveyex, and the Cloud-Rider Gang

First of all, keep in mind that this is just a commercial for Renault and there is no footage from the actual movie. Still the action scene shown in the commercial matches with what we’ve seen in the trailer and even supports another unconfirmed theory.


Here’s the new French TV spot (we first posted a shorter ad that was German) for Renault Kadjar, featuring characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story:




We’ve all seen Tobias Beckett fighting with Enfys Nest on the roof of the Conveyex (train) in the trailer. Also a few weeks ago a Hasbro toy revealed a packaging showing Enfys Nest and his Swoop Bike chasing the Conveyex on the planet Vandor (more on this here).

Now this commercial shows other gang members chasing the Conveyex with their bikes. While this is not a confirmation that this will also happen in the movie, I think based on the Hasbro toy we can assume that we will witness a Western like scene in the movie, but instead of horses chasing a train, we will have Enfys Nest and her Cloud-Rider gang on speeder bikes pursuing a Conveyex.


Back in 2016 Kathleen Kennedy said this movie will be closer to a heist or Western type feel, and it looks like they may have captured that feel.


And we shouldn’t forget the children’s book Train Heist, with the following blurb:

Han Solo and Chewbacca the Wookiee must team-up for a daring train heist on the planet Vandor!


Star Wars has become the pinnacle of movies for so many fans over the years, but at its core, from the beginning, Star Wars has always been a nod to other classic genres of film and serials. Now it looks like Solo will be giving a nod to Western heist movies among other things. While this commercial and other promotions haven’t provided us with real content from the film, it has provided us with a sense that Solo: A Star Wars Story is going to be a fun adventure – so strap in, as that adventure is about to take off in less than seven weeks!
