Harrison Ford surprises Alden Ehrenreich during interview for "Solo"

Solo Star Wars Story Palpatine cameo

So here we are, less than two weeks before Solo: A Star Wars movie is released. Why couldn't they just leave one character untarnished? Here's an extensive breakdown of everything you need to know before its release on May 25th.

The character of Han Solo, originally played by Harrison Ford, is a beloved figure in the Star Wars universe.

Acosta explained in the video's description, "Watching the trailer featuring new actor Alden Ehrenreich in the titular role it's hard to get used to".

What works best in "Solo" are the performances, from droids voiced by Jon Favreau and Phoebe Waller-Bridge ("Fleabag") to the utterly charismatic Ehrenreich and Glover.

I had my own reservations when it came to Ehrenreich.

I wasn't terribly anxious about spoilers ahead of Solo. As you might expect, Glover's take on the suave Lando Calrissian (and his many capes) is the scene-stealer throughout. If you liked Alan Tudyk's K-2SO, you're going to love L3-37. From there, Han will meet the characters you're plopping down your hard-earned 20 bucks for and finds himself in deeper danger than he ever could have bargained for, thanks to a pretty delicious villain played by Paul Bettany. But he sees a way out by hooking up with a team of thieves led by Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and Val (Thandie Newton). Hats off to Chewbacca actor Joonas Suotamo, who discreetly stepped into the franchise to take on more action-intensive scenes for original Chewie actor, Peter Mayhew, in 2016's The Force Awakens and has since assumed the reigns nearly entirely. Han meeting Chewie is absolutely brilliant and the new spin-off gives the Wookiee much more to do than the sequel trilogy has so far. Personally, I think this is less the leftover effect of Chris Miller and Phil Lord's involvement in the movie as one-time directors, and more on eventual director Ron Howard's vanilla style. I was on the edge of my seat and had so much fun watching it! "Not this too", I thought. The Empire also has a presence in the film. While the firing took place less than a year ago, Howard filmed non-stop from June to October 2017.

Solo: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters on May 25. I found the Sabaac game to be satisfying, but I felt a bit underwhelmed with the Kessel Run.

"There are so many possibilities...[Director of photography Bradford Young] see [s] the possibilities for scenes and ideas...[W] e know where [Han Solo]'s headed and it would be intriguing to navigate him there."

'And also some of the humour around some of the action in Willow was something I inspired to get into Solo'. The director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi shared his thoughts on the new film in an Instagram Story following the world premiere.
