In 2017, reports emerged about plans for standalone movies involving Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett, but after Solo's rather disappointing premiere, Disney might take it down a notch with the advertisements and production.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is coming our way and plenty of people want to celebrate the release.
Disney's Star Wars hotel still doesn't have a name or an opening date, but Disney promises an interactive experience unlike anything else we've seen in the hotel business before. Where does Solo: A Star Wars Story rank among its peers? "This is a film that I do not think a majority of "Star Wars" fans really wanted". "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is the next installment in the saga. There are a number of "Star Wars" films and TV shows in development. "It's really important that in the last four films there has been an increase in major speaking parts for women of colour, with Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) in The Last Jedi, and Val (Thandie Newton) and Enfys Nest (Erin Kellyman) in Solo", said Harrison. United States fans might also have been put off by seeing an iconic character like Han Solo played by a new actor. The problem with this film is that we already knew Han Solo's back story. He says stuff like, "I never ask for anything twice", and strokes things in a most menacing fashion. "Solo", "Rogue One" and Lucas' little-loved 1999-2005 trilogy all function as preludes for what's the come. Donald Glover is the young Lando Calrissian. I've seen them all-the originals a couple of times, but the nitty-gritty minutiae of each character's arc are forgotten quickly. But he sees a chance to escape with a gang of criminals posing as Imperial soldiers, led by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson). He kept me so close to his character that I may have considered cheering for him at the wrong moment of the film ... Unfortunately, not every character felt like they added to the movie in the way that they could have.
There is, therefore, something exciting and even a little radical about seeing L3-37 running around the control center, taking down guards and removing droids' restraining bolts while spouting revolutionary rhetoric.
Star Wars just fell to earth. Beckett and his crew, which includes characters played by Thandie Newton, and voiced by Jon Favreau, are posing as Imperials in order to steal a train auto of coaxium for a criminal syndicate known as Crimson Dawn which is headed by Dryden Vos, portrayed by Paul Bettany. Much of this is fan service, of course, but what is so refreshing about "Solo" is that it isn't attempting to be a grandiose space opera in the typical "Star Wars" tradition. Her character was definitely a letdown, as she was barely featured in a villainous way, instead working to emphasize Han's true nature as the "good guy".
The resulting film is packed with the kind of cartoon-like violence of the first film as well as many references to popular culture that come at you at an alarming pace. For the most part, we get to see everyone get into and out of trouble a few times, and they're all clearly enjoying themselves as they do it. The fact that "Solo" was such a fun adventure for the whole two-plus hours while belonging more towards the western genre than space-fantasy bodes well for the future of the galaxy far, far away.
