New Featurette Goes Inside The Making Of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

New Featurette Goes Inside The Making Of 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Or how about, "How old is Chewbacca?" These questions will likely be answered in Lando; the only other question now is just who and how many are interested in finding out the answers. It's just a shame they didn't use the time to add an engaging plot.

Solo: A Star Wars Story doesn't reach the heights of daring of The Last Jedi, but it's a movie created to be safe, familiar, and smile-inducing, all while watching characters we grew up with be young and brash. When they are separated at the gates of freedom, he vows he will do all he can to accomplish his goal and come back to rescue her. "And while that means the story lacks the depth some might crave, it still offers plenty of fun, and (impressively for a prequel) the odd surprise along the way". I went in wanting to feel invested and engaged, except, after the first 20 minutes, the main objective changed and I was left asking, "So... what am I suppose to be rooting for, again?"

We know where destiny will take them. It's a really hard thing to embody the looks, charm, and nuances of the original character played by the iconic, Harrison Ford.

Not much is yet known about Newton's mysterious Solo character, whose name is Val, and the actress played coy when ET asked for details earlier this year.

The action zips along, with the help of some predictably terrific special effects, but as a whole it feels more functional than exhilarating. Star Wars movies are usually rated well by critics, but do they still like Solo? What he wants to do more than anything else is fly, and as "Solo" opens, he's in the process of stealing a precious fuel called coaxium, which he plans to sell on the black market to buy a ship of his own. In this film, the dialogue tells me that he is "alone" but his actions aren't quite as defined. The "character arch" is much more of a "character line". He is in love with attractive Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) and they plan to bribe officials with a stolen phial of ultra-valuable fuel crystal Coaxium to get smuggled out. I don't know what sort of "lieutenant" dresses as she does at that time of the day.

"It's no spoiler to say that the Atlanta star is easily the best thing in this good-not-great movie".

On the Rotten Tomatoes front, Solo actually finds itself pretty low on the Star Wars chart - only Attack of the Clones and The Phantom Menace have scored lower - but the official logline still promises a fast-paced adventure.

Also there's a new droid, a winning know-it-all voiced brilliantly by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. "And he was like, 'I hear you; I don't like your odds.' And that was exactly what I needed to hear".

The film shows how Solo met his lanky Wookiee co-pilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) before they both became involved with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia in the Rebel Alliance's struggle against the Galactic Empire, led by the evil Darth Vader. However, I found myself remembering and then comparing the other big blockbusters those actors played in, verses just the story at hand.

This is part of what makes "Solo: A Star Wars Story" so much fun.

The previous stand-alone "Star Wars" movie, "Rogue One" (2016), used the tropes and tensions of the combat picture genre.

Howard is a fine film-maker, whose directorial career has been strong enough to stop us thinking of him primarily as wholesome Richie Cunningham from the TV sitcom Happy Days, but in truth this movie could do with a Fonz, someone to bestride and own it.
