No, the Next STAR WARS Spin-Off Won't Focus on LANDO CALRISSIAN

No, the Next STAR WARS Spin-Off Won't Focus on LANDO CALRISSIAN

Check. His first meeting with Chewie?

It added: "Ultimately, this is a different kind of Star Wars film to any that have gone before, with only hints of the main saga's bigger fate-of-the-galaxy picture". Han wants to leave with his girlfriend, Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke), but is essentially enslaved by his leader, Lady Proxima (Linda Hunt).

Thandie Newton may be a Solo star - but she's celebrating those who have come before her!

The new characters introduced here are inconsistent, from the trope-riddled crew of crooks Han falls in with to the gangster he runs afoul of and the love interest he pines after.

When Solo plays to its strengths, its an entertaining little adventure - little being the key word here.

"Although the end result will not likely find itself occupying an upper berth in the Star Wars movie pantheon, there's enough here to satisfy the fan base and give Disney a very strong turnout (it received its Cannes premiere on Tuesday) when it opens Memorial Day weekend". "Thrilling set-pieces, spine-tingling iconography and a Han/Chewie bromance to savour". It lacks any of the classical purity we have come to expect from Star Wars, instead dangling tales that will be presumably delivered upon in sequels. But another heist only makes sense for the character.

But it's not all a smooth ride, cowpokes. According to IndieWire there are no concrete plans just yet, but an official announcement of the future stories can't be too far off. "It's Casino Royale to Han Solo's James Bond". "He helps out with a lot of characters, a lot of the droids and things like that". He's basically trapped in amber, and when he makes a significant decision, we're left scratching our heads as to why.

The Washington Post found the cinematography to be limited by design, "The gifted cinematographer Bradford Young, who brought such sensitive atmospherics to the science fiction thriller Arrival, has shot Solo with similar attention to texture, density and dimension".

In short, it's clearly a movie made by committee with many hands on deck. They have apparently made over a thousand costumes for this film.

The screenplay is by Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote or co-wrote original trilogy Star Wars movies The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, as well as 2015 franchise reboot The Force Awakens, along with his son Jonathan Kasdan, whose previous credits include writing and directing the rom-com The First Time. And as mentioned, Bettany is game to chew scenery in a fascinating way.

While we're talking about Clarke, Rebecca Darling had some high praise for her performance in Solo.

It's also episodic. To be generous, you could say that the choppy structure is true to the roots of Star Wars as an homage to such cliff-hanging Saturday matinees as Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon. It's an especially murky experience in the first 30 minutes of the film, where everything is cast in various shades of grey and muddy, grimy exterior.

There are some interesting roles for women, who have characters with fascinating histories and motivations of their own.
