“I have a bad feeling about this”. That’s what crossed many Star Wars fans’ minds, myself included, when Solo: A Star Wars Story was first announced. After a shaky production, which saw original directors Lord and Miller get the boot and replaced by Hollywood old guard Ron Howard, Solo: A Star Wars Story is finally here. Set prior to the events of A New Hope and Rogue One, Solo follows a much younger Han Solo in his early smuggling years. Played this time by Alden Ehrenreich, the film has a lot to prove as many fans have been vocal about not wanting to see Han Solo’s early years and after the mixed reception to The Last Jedi which divided the fan base, Solo needed to be a hit. So how is it?
We’re less than two weeks away before the release of the hotly anticipated film Solo: A Star Wars Story. Fans are dying to see how one of the franchises’ most beloved characters will be on the big screen while being portrayed by Alden Ehrenreich, who is taking over the duty of the Captain of the Millennium Falcon from Harrison Ford.
