Latest Star Wars film 'Solo' debuts, gets early praise

The good news is that it sounds like Solo is a decent addition to the franchise and should please most Star Wars fans around the world.

The result? Solo: A Star Wars Story was beginning to feel like a rudderless ship, and it was only when Ron Howard climbed aboard that Lucasfilm's confidence in the project was restored.

It's important to note that on top of the production kerfuffle, people weren't initially sold on the idea of a Han Solo origin story. Hopefully the Han Solo content will be enough to bring players back.

There were also leaks from set that relatively-green actor Alden Ehrenreich, who plays the young version of Han, was simply not delivering what Disney wanted. "Jon brings the flawless mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe".

But his latest poster for Solo, A Star Wars Story, which focusses on the character of Han Solo and his faithful sidekick the wookiee Chewbacca, he was given free reign. Given what these critics said, yes, but if anyone already forgot Star Wars: The Last Jedi in December 2017, fans were arguably divided over it more than any other movie in this franchise.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is the second film in the Star Wars story series, following Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which opened in December 2016, and has garnered worldwide box office receipts of over $1 billion dollars.
