'Lando' Movie in the Works, Says Lucasfilm Chief Kathleen Kennedy

Childish Gambino's 'Star Wars' Character Will Get Spin-Off Film

Emilia Clarke is tired of hearing female leads called “strong”

IGN says, "Solo: A Star Wars Story commits to being a charming and fun exercise in repackaging nostalgia and pre-owned protagonists".

Stars Wars: The Last Jedi - 91%. This theme is driven home in the film's worst passages of dialogue, a lot of them between Solo and Qi'Ra, who ominously assures him she's not the same girl he once knew.

Deadpool 2 is not the only big movie to be released in May because later this month Disney will be releasing Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The technical wizardry augments these scenes, as do the musical cues incorporated by composer John Powell, weaving in snippets of John Williams' earlier themes - most notably from "The Empire Strikes Back" - in a way that helps recapture the spirit of the original trilogy, at least during certain key moments. Of all the interplanetary cocktail events in all the galaxy she had to walk into this one. But no matter: He's appealing anyway, and that's key to any pleasure you might draw from Ron Howard's wobbly foray into the Star Wars sidebar universe.

We're also beginning to get our first impressions of whether Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdan's Solo story - the topic of much speculation and debate amid Disney and Lucasfilm's tightly controlled spoiler checks - holds up to the high standard set by the first standalone Star Wars film, 2016's Gareth Edwards-directed Rogue One. Despite behind-the-scenes drama, the combination of Howard and the elder Kasdan brings a sense of nostalgic warmth to this space western-inspired heist flick.

Alden Ehrenreich ("Blue Jasmine", "Hail, Caesar!") is quite a bit smaller than Harrison Ford and he doesn't bear much of a facial resemblance to the man who made Solo a legend, but Ehrenreich delivers a winning performance and does a fantastic job at foreshadowing certain characteristics and tendencies of Ford-as-Han, without delving into impersonation.


PLOT How a street-wise youngster became the intergalactic outlaw Han Solo.

Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn't be seeing any new films. Harrellson just looks happy to collect a big budget pay-check, and Clarke once again is unable to translate her Game of Thrones on-screen success into any other franchise. Hats off to Chewbacca actor Joonas Suotamo, who discreetly stepped into the franchise to take on more action-intensive scenes for original Chewie actor, Peter Mayhew, in 2016's The Force Awakens and has since assumed the reigns nearly entirely. Solo's first meeting with Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), chained together in a mud pit, recalls any number of handcuffed-buddy comedies. This latest movie introduces us to the backstory of one of our favorite characters - Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich ; Beautiful Creatures). (Some of these things happen, some don't).

The ending, in particular, takes Star Wars lore to a bold place that potentially might not land with casual and diehard fans alike. It will be interesting to see if the public agrees with the critics this time around. (More to come on that later).

The other minor detriment to my overall enjoyment of "Solo" is that the villain- or the character that turns out to be the villain, I won't ruin the specifics of that here- ended up feeling a little undercooked to me.

I will see your Kenobi rumors and raise them a Lando one.
