After watching Solo: A Star Wars Story nearly my entire view surrounding Han Solo and Chewbacca’s stories has changed, as this standalone film has filled in gaps I didn’t even know I wanted to be answered and provided me tantalizing ideas for the future of Star Wars as well.

For the past few days, I’ve been rather busy and because of that, I’m taking a break for the weekend. That means there will be no new content arriving until Monday. Until then, I will be sharing favorite old posts of mine.
Once again, I must thank you for supporting my site and I hope you find these old posts enjoyable.
Have a lovely day.
