What Harrison Ford Thought Of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

What Harrison Ford Thought Of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Let me be clear: I understand that in one way or another, all Star Wars films simply exist to create more Star Wars films. "And we got to revisit stuff that normally you don't get to have a second chance on", Clarke explained to Variety.

The Rotten Tomatoes tomatometer now has Solo sitting at a good, not great, 72%, a number that's expected to change as we get closer to the release date. I did not do that well.

'On Game of Thrones, I have always been paid the same amount as my male co-stars, ' she said.

That emphasis certainly plays to the talents of director Ron Howard, whose most memorable films tend to be known for their colorful protagonists rather than their pulse-pounding battle sequences. A lot of this was because of the character of Han Solo; he had the coolest ship, he was charming and amusing, and his best friend was a giant bear dog who could rip people's arms out of their sockets.

Seeing Han Solo drop the cargo in this film would be an fantastic tie into Star Wars: A New Hope, adding even more canon connectivity to an already cohesive storyline.

As rendered by the moodily attractive Alden Ehrenreich, who could have played a young Henry Hill in "Goodfellas", this Solo bears only a glancing resemblance to the gruff, irreverent flyboy whom Ford portrayed so winningly. It's also a corner of the Star Wars galaxy where slave labor, both human and cybernetic, is very much in effect. "Solo: A Star Wars Story" gets the job done with little fuss, but also with precious little finesse. But first, buckle up, make the jump to lightspeed and enjoy the fun adventure that is Solo: A Star Wars Story, out May 25.

We'll give Acosta credit for looking for the best clips of a young Harrison Ford, as he was sure to use footage that predates his first appearance in Star Wars: A New Hope. Solo's first meeting with Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), chained together in a mud pit, recalls any number of handcuffed-buddy comedies.


The Solo A Star Wars Story reviews are in, and despite the fact that exactly no one asked for a Han Solo origin film, critics are largely pleased with the latest entry in this franchise.

Donald Glover shines as Lando Calrissian, even if it feels like his screentime is fleeting.

Anthony Daniels has been a part of every Star Wars to date and that streak won't end with Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Filling in for Harrison Ford is a tall order for any actor, but once the story goes through its paces, Ehrenreich was able to endear himself to even the most diehard of Han Solo fans, as IndieWire's Kate Erbland pointed out. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.

"I´m not naturally aggressive as a human and I found conflict in the workplace incredibly hard because I get emotional".

Hollywood played host Thursday evening to a few more scoundrels than usual for the world premiere of "Solo: A Star Wars Story".
