Solo: A Star Wars Story


Rated PG-13 · 135 minutes · 2018

Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Festival
After Rogue One (2016), this is the second installment in Disney's "Star Wars Anthology" franchise filling in the nooks and crannies of George Lucas's original saga. A prequel to the original 1977 film, it stars Alden Ehrenreich as the daring space pilot Han Solo (taking over for Harrison Ford, who's too old to be flying), and the story encompasses his first meeting with the perpetually disgruntled Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), whom he delivers from slavery (or at least lets off his leash). The story is forgettable, but the sets and properties have a cheap, plastic feel that's consistent with the modestly budgeted original; close your eyes a little and imagine you're watching this during the Carter years, before communism fell and the Galactic Empire took over. Ron Howard directed; with Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, and Thandie Newton.
