Solo A Star Wars Story reviews

Solo: A Star Wars Story is about to land in theaters after a highly-publicized and turbulent flight, and if you’ll allow me to belabor the metaphor, it sounds as if director Ron Howard managed to pull this particular spaceship out of a potentially disastrous nosedive and smooth things out in a satisfying way.

The Solo A Star Wars Story reviews are in, and despite the fact that exactly no one asked for a Han Solo origin film, critics are largely pleased with the latest entry in this franchise. Read excerpts from a handful of reviews below.

Warwick Davis Solo Cameo - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

We’re still a little over a week away from Solo: A Star Wars Story hitting theaters. But since the film played the Cannes Film Festival, there have been some screenings a bit earlier in advance than usual, and that means some interesting details are coming to light. We’re not going to dive into any of the spoilers from the movie just yet, but we do have one intriguing detail that even the most hardcore Star Wars fans wouldn’t realize upon their first viewing of Solo.

Warwick Davis first appeared in the Star Wars saga as Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and since then he’s had little cameo roles in The Phantom Menace, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and Rogue One (seen above). We already knew the actor was also appearing in Solo: A Star Wars Story as well, but now we know who he’s playing, and it appears to be one of the characters he portrayed in one of the previous Star Wars films.

Harrison Ford Surprises Alden Ehrenreich

Last week at the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story there was no sign of Harrison Ford. Since the actor was finally given the opportunity to walk away from Star Wars after the death of Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you can hardly blame him for wanting to stay away from the hordes of fans who go crazy whenever he shows up. Plus, he probably wanted to let the film’s star Alden Ehrenreich have the spotlight as the charming smuggler.

For any fans thinking that Harrison Ford’s absence was a little worrisome, we have some good news. The original Han Solo caught the young Han Solo off guard during a recent on camera interview when Harrison Ford surprised Alden Ehrenreich in the middle of an on-camera interview. You can check out the cool reunion of the two actors in a video below. Read More »

Brad Bird Directing Star Wars

Back when everyone was still wondering who would be at the helm of Star Wars Episode VII, one of the names who was on everyone’s radar was none other than Brad Bird. While the filmmaker was best known for his work on The Incredibles and Ratatouille, he had made a satisfying transition into live-action with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, making him a prime candidate to take over Star Wars.

Brad Bird ended up directing Tomorrowland instead of taking the helm of the film that would become The Force Awakens. However, it sounds like whenever Brad Bird decides that he has something he wants to do in the Star Wars universe, he has an open invitation to let Lucasfilm know. Read More »

obi-wan spin-off

Finally, we may receive the Obi-Wan spin-off movie we were looking for. The long-rumored Star Wars standalone movie centered around the Jedi Master first played by Alec Guinness in A New Hope and Ewan McGregor in the prequel films looked like it was finally getting off the ground last year when news broke that The Hours director Stephen Daldry was in talks with Lucasfilm to direct.

But then, as the Star Wars fandom attention turned to Star Wars: The Last Jedi then Solo: A Star Wars Story, not a peep was heard from Lucasfilm about the potential Obi-Wan spin-off. Until now.

Colin Trevorrow Star Wars episode 9

The behind-the-scenes troubles at Lucasfilm have become almost a regular fixture of the entertainment news cycle. Ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens went through extensive reshoots, it seems like Lucasfilm could not release a movie without some reports of sweeping events behind closed doors.

Those reports kicked into high gear last year with the one-two punch of Phil Lord and Chris Miller getting fired from Solo: A Star Wars Story and Colin Trevorrow parting ways with Lucasfilm during the development of Star Wars Episode 9. Now, a new report unveils a few more details about the Colin Trevorrow Star Wars Episode 9 departure.

Live-Action Star Wars TV Series

Back at the beginning of March, we learned the first live-action Star Wars television series would written and executive produced by Iron Man director and producer Jon Favreau. However, beyond the fact that it was a series that would take place in the Star Wars universe, we had no idea what that series would be about. Now, a few new details have emerged.

Appearing at the premiere for Solo: A Star Wars Story, in which Favreau voices an alien who joins Han Solo’s heist crew, the showrunner revealed his live-action Star Wars TV series would be set seven years after the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi. That means it takes place long before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Read More »

Solo Early Buzz

Every Star Wars movie is undoubtedly an event, but Solo: A Star Wars Story can’t help but feel different from everything that has come before. Sure, it’s another prequel (and we all remember those), but it takes a beloved character from the original trilogy, recasts him with a fresh-faced young actor, and offers up an origin story. Sure, the Star Wars name is going to pack theaters, but do people want a young Han Solo movie? And can Lucasfilm pull it off in a way that makes people care?

Well, Solo: A Star Wars Story has started screening and the first reactions have hit the internet.
