Two new clips from Solo: A Star Wars Story were just released and it's a look inside the world of underground gambling in the Star Wars galaxy.

One clip features Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) meeting Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), while the other is a glimpse at Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) playing Holochess with Chewbacca.

The first sees Solo playing a game of Sabacc with Calrissian while suspiciously evaluating one another.

"No liars in this game, just players," Calrissian says.

Solo calls him a "lucky guy" and asks if Calrissian will tell him if a story he heard about him was true.

Calrissian proceeds to call the Star Wars hero "Hen" instead of "Han" and says that everything he's heard about him is true.

The second clip reveals a frustrated Chewbacca who is losing at a game of Holochess as Beckett tries to give him gaming advice.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is a new adventure in the Star Wars universe that centres on Solo as the main character.

While the "beloved scoundrel" is navigating a dangerous "criminal underworld", Solo befriends his future copilot Chewbacca, meets gambler Lando Calrissian in a story that begins the character's path to becoming a hero.

The film stars Ehrenreich, Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Paul Bettany.

Solo: A Star Wars Story lands in cinemas on May 24.
