Solo A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story
Director: Ron Howard
Writers: Lawrence Kasdan, Jon Kasdan
Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 135 Minutes
Release Date: May 25, 2018

The Star Wars film universe will never be the same now that Disney has started to release spinoffs. These films are part of a larger anthology that will explore parts of the untold stories of the mythology. Much of which has revolved around the Skywalker saga. Solo: A Star Wars Story is a departure from what we have seen since Disney acquired the property, but it also stays true to the spirit of stories that take place in a galaxy far, far away.

Of course, it is incredibly risky when making an origins movie about a character as iconic as Han Solo. But if it is done right, it can pay off in the long run. While Solo may be a little rough around the edges – just like its title character – it is the kind of spinoff that will not disappoint. Check out my full review below.

Solo A Star Wars Story

Later this Summer, Solo: A Star Wars Story will be the latest Star Wars film to hit theaters. Unlike the core saga, Solo is a spinoff that will focus on the titular character’s origins. Han Solo, made famous by Harrison Ford, will now be played by much younger Alden Ehrenreich. Joining him will be Donald Glover, who plays a younger version of the smooth Lando Calrissian. While we have seen a couple of trailers and TV spots for the new film, the latest featurette for Solo details what the spinoff will be about and this is a different universe than we’re used to. Check out the featurette “Becoming Solo” here below.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Cast Photo

When Lucasfilm fired directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller from Solo: A Star Wars Story, it came at a very bad time. The Star Wars spin-off was just about to be completed before the directors were given the axe due to creative reasons. Ron Howard would then step in as their replacement. But that even came with its own complications. While the “creative differences” excuse has been thrown around in situations like these, it appears there is some truth to it.

More on what lead up to Lord and Miller’s firing, how Howard did not want the gig at first, and what George Lucas did to help Howard. Check it all out here below.

In the weeks leading up to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we will probably hear a lot more about the other spinoffs that take place within the same universe. While Disney and Lucasfilm had planned on alternating between the saga films and spinoffs every year, the only other spinoff what we know about is that of the untitled Han Solo film that is set to begin production early next year.

The film will focus on a younger Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) in the years before we first met them in the original Star Wars trilogy. While there isn’t a definitive plot synopsis, producer Kathleen Kennedy dropped a few hints that tell us more about the film’s tone. According to her, the spinoff will have a heist or western type feel to it. More on the story below.
