Fans of the original Star Wars Series will get to see a much younger, more optimistic side of Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story. The film isn’t your usual Star Wars film full of light saber fights and battling sides but instead is all about the journey of Han Solo and how he came to be one of the greatest smugglers in the galaxy.
In this spin off, you will see not only Han Solo, but Chewbacca and Lando (among other familiar characters). Instead of trying to save the galaxy, Han and his motely crew go on a series of expeditions to pay off a life-threatening debt.
These quest are both entertaining and comedic. The chemistry between Han Solo and Lando Calrissian is fantastic. Everyone’s favorite Wookie is also given a back story and those watching the film will learn how Han and Chewbacca meet and develop their relationship.
Ofcourse, it wouldn’t be Han Solo without the Millennium Falcon, the most well known ship of the Star Wars Franchise. In this installment, however, the ship is the possession of Lando.
The movie gives a lot of references from other Star Wars film so keep a sharp eye because not all are obvious. The film may be slow paced at the start, but hang on for the ride because you won’t be disappointed.
By the end of the film, you will have a lot of questions, but hopefully they will be revealed in future installments. Solo: A Star Wars Story is a family friendly movie that deserves a lot more praise and it definitely worth seeing in theaters.
