A Few Thoughts On Solo: A Star Wars Story

I saw Solo: A Star Wars Story this afternoon. I really enjoyed it and hope the poor opening weekend returns don’t screw us out of a sequel. I felt most of the cast did a great job, even the ones trying to capture established characters. The movie very much felt like a Star Wars movie although it was still nice, much like Rogue One, to visit this universe and see what else is there outside the main saga films.

If I had any complaints at all, and it would be very minor, is that it could easily have been called Han & the Furious borrowing some themes from another familiar franchise. I like that franchise too, so I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a bad thing. Just a familiar thing.

I really do hope they stick to the plan of making a trilogy and look forward to seeing the other two movies.
