If you love Disney movies then I’m sure you’ve seen Aladdin potentially a few times. I’ve only seen it once but I used to read the novelization of it and listen to the songs all the time and it quickly became one of my favorite Disney films of all time. When they announced they were going to make a live-action of the movie I got SOOO excited. Beauty and the Beast was pretty fantastic, considering the classic version it had to go up against, and I am beyond excited to see this magical story brought to the big screen.
And, if this wasn’t exciting enough, the teaser trailer is set to come out tomorrow! Ahh! This is awesome. I can’t wait to see it!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
Not much was known about Han Solo’s past except for the legendary rumors that he ran the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs and that he won the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian in a game. Solo, however, helped clear up a lot about his past and it turns out that the film predicted much of his future as well. And I’m talking about one scene in particular.
Tobias Beckett is Han’s Ben Kenobi. He’s the older, wise guy who helps direct young Han through life and introduces him to the criminal world just like Ben Kenobi helped introduce Luke Skywalker to the concept of the Force and the Jedi. But unlike Ben who is clearly benevolent Beckett is a smuggler through and through and his life lessons are a lot more cynical.
At one point in Solo: A Star Wars Story Beckett berates Han for trying to bring Qi’ra back into his life. Han tells Beckett that Qi’ra is perfectly fine and will never try to do him wrong but Tobias knows better. He tells Han, and I quote, “Assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed.”
At first glance it seems that this disturbing wisdom is only a setup for Beckett’s betrayal later in the movie but actually it sums up Han’s entire life in a few words. Let me give you a quick rundown of Han’s journey after Solo.

Captain Marvel, the heroine whose sudden importance to the MCU is a mystery in itself. Up until now superheroes in the MCU are usually introduced through subtle references or easter eggs that announce their arrival long before they eventually debut in a movie. Captain Marvel hasn’t been afforded that luxury.
Until Avengers: Infinity War next to nothing has been said about this superhero who’s supposedly the strongest Marvel hero to date in the current roster of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And then, with an awesome end-credits scene at the end of Infinity War, this hero that flies among the stars has suddenly been placed to the forefront of the conversation surrounding Avengers 4. But why?
Some fans are a bit peeved that she’s being introduced in such an abrupt fashion. They think Marvel is finding an excuse to make their first female standalone film so that the franchise will look as inclusive as possible rather than setting up something that’s legitimately important.
