We do a quick watch-through of the a new Solo commercial:

Solo is going to run 2 hours and 15 minutes.

We take a look at a lot of Solo toys (as seen here: https://www.starwars.com/news/solo-a-star-wars-story-products-revealed) and what they might tell us about the movie.

Looks like there will be droid fights in Solo.
