Here are the first reactions to 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Saturday, 12 May, 2018

"It was insane, but as a kid you pretend you were on that ship for such a long time that it feels very farmiliar in a way", said Solo star Alden Ehrenreich of stepping into the Falcon for the first time.

Star Wars franchise's newest film titled Solo: A Star Wars Story had its world premiere on Thursday in Los Angeles.

"If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn't have believed you". If you are shopping through Fandango, each fan who buys one ticket or more on Fandango will receive a complimentary "Solo: A Star Wars Story" movie poster while supplies last. Gizmodo's Germain Lussier described it as "a non-stop adventure packed with way more emotion than you're expecting".

He described it as "a straight intergalactic heist movie", with Ehrenreich "super impressive as Han".

No matter what Lucasfilm and John Favreau decide, we all should be grateful for more Star Wars content.

The latest episode in the Star Wars story tells how the young Han Solo met Chewbacca and became involved with the notorious gambling kingpin Lando Calrissian, eventually becoming the owner of Calrissian's custom-modified Corellian freighter, the Millenium Falcon - the fastest ship in the galaxy.

Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in five "Star Wars" films, also attended the premiere, as did Billy Dee Williams, who portrayed Calrissian in "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi".

This new Star Wars story was written by Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdan, and was directed by Ron Howard.

Alden Ehrenreich takes over the controls of the Millennium Falcon in the new spin-off, heading up a cast that also includes Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Woody Harrelson.

Jabba's Palace is joining the maps in Star Wars Battlefront II, and will be available in both Heroes vs. Villains, Blast, and Arcade modes. A lot of people are already excited for Solo. Once it does, it seems the show will feature a number of alien creatures as Favreau said they are "figuring out new techniques" and looking at "all the stuff that I've been learning on Jungle Book and Lion King" to realize some of the characters he devised.
