Solo: A Star Wars Story has had a troubled production (to say the least), and follows on the heels of the financially successful but fan-dividing Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We got a sneak peek of the 10th Star Wars film last night at the Super Bowl, but Lucasfilm has released the full first teaser today and my reaction is……ok. It looks great. There aren’t any fist-pumping moments for me. I’m not sold on Alden Ehrenreich as Solo. The plot seems to be standard caper fare, but at this point, who really knows? I’m less excited about this film than any Star Wars film since Episode II so my expectations are rather low. I hope I’m wrong. I want to be wrong. The teaser doesn’t really give me enough information to make a decision one way or another. Read below for Coming Soon’s summary. Solo: A Star Wars Story is coming to theaters Memorial Day.

Unusual Suspects has put together a truly awesome trailer for The Empire Strikes Back featuring the score and the style of the trailer for The Last Jedi. A lot of people criticized The Force Awakens for drawing too heavily from A New Hope, but I don’t think that criticism is going to be valid for Empire and TLJ (for the record, I think it’s a lazy critique of the first film in the sequel trilogy). At any rate, this is just a well-done piece of Star Wars candy to get you through your week. You can click here to see all six prior saga trilogy films get this same sort of treatment with the music and style of The Force Awakens trailer.
It’s not brain surgery, but it’s an elegant title. The second anthology film will be called Solo: A Star Wars Story. Director Ron Howard announced the title today as principal photography has wrapped. While I’m enormously excited and positive regarding The Last Jedi (which opens in only 59 days), I have a lot of trepidation regarding Solo. A lot of them stem from the weird firing of original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (click here to read more on that). To some degree, I-like a lot of Star Wars fans-can’t imagine anyone but Harrison Ford as the smuggler, and I don’t have enough confidence in Alden Ehrenreich to overcome that prejudice. I DO think Donald Glover will destroy a young Lando Clarissian. What makes me most nervous about the film is how Disney has refused to budge on the May 23, 2018, release date. That’s not a lot of time to smooth out the wrinkles on a film with a troubled production history PLUS do all the massive amount of post-production work that is required in any Star Wars film. But say all that goes GREAT and the film is fantastic…..I still think Disney is setting it up to fail. Continue reading Han Solo Movie Wraps; Official Title Announced
I normally don’t post on Christmas Day, but I wanted to express my deep thankfulness to all my readers in a unique way that could only be expressed in song…..by a Wookie. Thank you so much to the folks at How It Should Have Ended for creating this masterpiece that reminds of Christmas, family, Star Wars, and how profoundly empty our lives would be without the Internet to share these things. God bless us all, every one, and Merry Christmas to you all!
