“Star Wars” fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The first reactions are in for the Han Solo spin-off movie and they’re good. Very good.
Fans were worried after original directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord left the movie during filming due to “creative differences.” Ron Howard stepped in to complete the project. According to the Wall Street Journal, there was a lot of drama behind-the-scenes. A report from Vulture suggested the lead, Alden Ehrenreich, needed an acting coach to get through the movie. Supposedly, the script was “unworkable.”
Well, it seems like none of that may have mattered too much.
“Solo: A Star Wars” held its world premiere in Los Angeles Thursday night and fans and critics immediately started sharing their thoughts about the movie, which praise not only Donald Glover, but also the new Han Solo himself, Alden Ehrenreich.
There are a few concerns about a slow start to the film, but overall the early consensus is that “Solo” is good. The movie follows a younger Han Solo when he first meets Lando Calrissian (Glover) and acquires the famed Millennium Falcon.
If you were worried about Ehrenreich as Solo, don’t be.
Apparently, he’s “the real deal.”
Glover’s Lando Calrissian is just as good as you imagined.
Move aside, BB-8. Your new favorite “Star Wars” character may be L3.
While there was a lot to enjoy, not everyone was the biggest fan.
You may be left wondering if this was the “Star Wars” movie we needed.
Overall, the movie sounds like a good time.
The full reviews for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” will hit May 15 at 5 p.m. EST.
