Zadzooks: "Solo: A Star Wars Story" Kessel Run Millennium Falcon Lego review


Aside from the new content, Star Wars Battlefront II is getting a faster main menu.

Solo: A Star Wars Story makes the jump to light speed in a high-octane adventure that navigates the perils of a dark and unsafe criminal underworld, forges new friendships that will last a lifetime, and reveals untold secrets from the hidden past of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes. "Fun as hell. It's a straight intergalactic heist movie, kind of refreshing to see a "Star Wars' movie without a Death Star or the rebellion's fate at stake".

The much-awaited Solo: A Star Wars Story had its grand premiere on Thursday and while the official reviews are yet to come in, many fans have started putting up their reactions about the film on Twitter.

Gizmodo Solo: A Star Wars Story is a goddamn delight. Fans camped out for days before the premiere.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is released in United Kingdom cinemas on May 24, 2019. "I'm only one opinion". Ehrenreich stars as the young pilot opposite Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, with Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson and Paul Bettany playing roles created for the film. Meanwhile, Thandie Newton as Val and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Lando's droid companion, L3-37, also get special mentions.

Before the release of this film, many fans were quite wary of seeing Han Solo in a younger avatar.

However, one of the biggest time jumps that the Star Wars films have made was between the recent trilogy reboot of The Force Awakens and the closing of the original trilogies' The Return of the Jedi. In June, Ron Howard (Apollo 13, The Da Vinci Code) was hired as their replacement.

The pair behind the acclaimed "The LEGO Movie" and "21 Jump Street", were dropped after clashing with Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and writer Lawrence Kasdan, according to reports. Star Wars is not new to the small screen as it has had its own animated program, but it will soon have a live action series streamed on Disney.
