Long before they were heroes of the Rebellion, see how a scoundrel, a Wookie, and a notorious gambler met in that galaxy far, far away. Set in the years before the events of Episode IV: A New Hope, an unpredictable young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) navigates the seedy criminal underbelly of a galaxy dominated by the Empire. There he finds his future co-pilot in the mighty Chewbacca, and meets the ultimate frenemy in the always charming Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). But it also just might be the start of something truly beautiful: the love affair between one man and one Millennium Falcon… Directed by Ron Howard, Solo: A Star Wars Story also stars Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

- Phil Lord and Christopher Miller left as writers of The Flash to work on the film. They and original editor Chris Dickens left halfway through production, citing irreconcilable creative differences with producer Kathleen Kennedy and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan. A studio report reveals that Lord and Miller's comedic screwball tone and freewheeling approach angered Kasdan, who wanted the film shot the way it was written. It also angered other production department heads, who complained directly to Kennedy. The final straw came during a two-week break while production moved from the UK to the Canary Islands. Kennedy, Kasdan, and replacement editor Pietro Scalia were shocked at the footage, and decided to fire Lord and Miller.
- When characters go into Dryden's chambers, they were ordered to turn over their weapons first. Yet they have no problem with Chewbacca walking in with a bandoleer full of ammunition.

This is prob one of my favorite Star Wars movies yet! It’s got lots of action, great acting, awesome special effects, great story and The Mother of Dragons! Can not wait for a sequel.
Don't go expecting a Star Wars movie... Instead, go expecting a heist movie that takes place in the Star Wars Universe, and you'll be pleasantly surprised
Despite the intermittent lags, the production proves to be more than a salvage operation thanks mainly to those engagingly choreographed performances, led by an irresistibly charismatic title turn from Alden Ehrenreich who ultimately claims Solo as his own even if he doesn’t entirely manage to convince us he’s Harrison Ford.
The action ultimately takes second place to the fun moments linking the spin-off to the main Star Wars saga
It’s galling for a movie that costs so much and takes up so much cultural space to try to do so little, but it’s a familiar disappointment, like the dull ache of a tooth that only bothers you when you bite down on it wrong.
