A Star Wars Story

Solo Premiere: How the Mysterious Star Wars Spinoff Played to Its First Audience

Donald Glover has been on a recent streak of success that includes hosting SNL, releasing the acclaimed video for "This Is America", and starring as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

In the same vein, Terri Schwartz, the Editorial Manager over at IGN pointed out that the film has the same ageless Star Wars patina.

Solo is the second Star Wars Story spinoff film following 2017's Rogue One.

"Solo" is the 10th Star Wars film, and is a prequel to the original Star Wars trilogy that traces the origin of Harrison Ford's Han Solo character before he becomes the iconic maverick. Hopefully, they'll be some of their humour for us to see, but don't go into the movie expecting to see a whole lot of it.




Traffic stopped for a spaceship on one of Los Angeles's most famous streets Thursday night-a massive, towering replica of the Millennium Falcon, to be precise, which Disney dropped in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard. While many Star Wars projects are in the works, m including an entirely new trilogy from Rian Johnson, we don't know what Star Wars has in store for us next following Star Wars: Episode IX next year. Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Thandie Newton as Val and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Lando's droid companion, L3-37, also got appreciations from the critics.

Along the way on the red carpet, "Star Wars" creator George Lucas walked right past us.

Fans of the franchise can get their tickets on Fandango or Atom Tickets, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is set to debut in theaters on May 25, 2018. All you need to know was life was hard and those who were quick-witted could outlive those who stole and killed.

"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", said Favreau in a statement accompanying the announcement. "More like, I see one negative thing and I track that person down", Glover joked.
