The latest trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story pays homage to a classic Star Wars scene.

The trailer shows Chewbacca playing a game of Dejarik (space chess) with Woody Harrelsons character Beckett. Chewbacca, failing to take the loss with grace, slams his fists down on the board, which leads to Harrelson's quip about how the pieces are holograms.

Watch the trailer, called Ride, here.

If this at all sounds familiar, its because its an almost shot-for-shot remake of a scene in A New Hope, which includes Chewbacca expressing frustration with C3PO and R2D2 while playing Dejarik on the Millenium Falcon.

Han Solo (Harrison Ford) advises both droids to let Chewbacca win because Wookiees have been known to pull peoples arms out of their sockets when they lose.

Looks like were going to get an early look at Chewbaccas poor sportsmanship in the new film.

According to KXAN-TV, Ross Robbins wore a Darth Vader T-shirt to hospital, which read, I am your father.
