The Title for the Han Solo Film Has Finally Been Revealed

It’s been months since the untitled-Han Solo film started production and now, finally, it has a name. Here it is.

Is this title that surprising? Not really. In fact, it’s so predictable my sister knew this was going to be the name of the movie earlier this year. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing. I mean, this film is strictly about Han Solo and so shouldn’t the title have something to do with his iconic name? Yes, but my only issue with this title is how it looks.

Rogue One looked like this.

As you can see the font is much thinner and it just looks more appealing. Then you’ve got Solo, A Star Wars story and the words are just so bold and yellow, it slightly looks childish. I think they could’ve definitely done a better job. I do understand that the titles kind of give a feel for the movie. Rogue One was a much more dire, serious Star Wars film and so it makes sense that the title would be this brown color. Judging from the title for Solo it’s going to be a lot more comedic and lighter than your usual Star Wars film. I hope this isn’t yet another sign that LucasFilm might’ve bitten off more than they can chew with this Han Solo film.

I thank you for reading my post and I hope you have a wonderful day.

The Five Most Tear-Jerking Moments in Star Wars

So yesterday I watched Rogue One and it was fantastic, to say the least. But then as the credits were rolling I thought to myself, what are the moments in Star Wars that always brings a tear to my eye, from either the sheer happiness I feel for the moment or the immense sadness that the situation entails. Great Star Wars films are like emotional rollercoasters, that’s why they’re so enjoyable. There are certain times in the movies that can make me the happiest person on Earth while there are other moments that can literally leave me in a bath of tears. And so, here are the five instances in Star Wars that happen to always make me at least a little emotional.

My Favorite Pics from the Set of the Han Solo Film

Since Ron Howard became the new director of the still-untitled Han Solo film he has been updating us Star Wars fans with all sorts of vague, but very interesting photos of the upcoming Han Solo movie. Here are the photos that I think are incredibly telling even if there isn’t really anything to see. Enjoy!

I love this photo simply because I love new mysterious locations in the world of Star Wars and this photo totally screams mysterious. There’s the fog, there’s a giant broken machine or something like that over on the right side. I can’t wait to see what this will be in the Han Solo movie.

The Directors of the Han Solo Film Have Been Fired, Here’s Why That’s Good

I’ve been skeptical about the untitled Young Han Solo film since it was first announced. Now I’m totally confident in the direction Kathleen Kennedy and co. want to take these films. Especially after the groundbreaking Rogue One which shocked and wowed audiences around the world. It was so good that it edged out Empire Strikes Back to become my favorite Star Wars film. And it’s one of the few movies brave enough to kill off all of its characters, and mind you this is Disney being this heartless. Now with The Last Jedi coming out this December I’m beyond excited for the next installment into this brand new trilogy. This Han Solo movie, however, which is planned to come out in theaters next May has never gotten me really excited.

First of all the actor, they chose to play the iconic smuggler doesn’t exactly look like Harrison Ford. His face is just a little too square and that’s already a problem. And now, due to some disagreeing between the directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and the producer, Kathleen Kennedy, and the writer, Lawrence Kasdan, the directors have been fired. Now at first, I was stunned. The movie is in the middle of filming and now the directors with the vision of the film have been fired! Why would this happen?

After finding out they were fired because they weren’t given the freedom to make the movie they wanted I was pleased. Yes, they made highly appraised films such as 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie but this is Star Wars. And not only is it Star Wars but it’s a movie about Han Solo. Han Solo has already been killed off in the most brutal fashion. The last thing LucasFilm needs to do is make the movie about him anywhere close to the quality of the prequels. It would be very bad for LucasFilm and very bad for their anthology films going forward. And the last person you’re supposed to disagree with when it comes to the creative vision of a Star Wars film is Lawrence Kasdan who actually wrote The Empire Strikes Back. So I’m happy the directors were fired.

The bad thing about this new development, however, is it refreshes my skepticism about this film. I hope it’s good, I really do but I just have a bad feeling about this (see what I did there.) Han Solo is too precious of a character to tamper with and I know LucasFilm realizes this. Until I see the first teaser I’m not going to be too excited for this film just yet. Hopefully, this new change will help the movie and not hurt it.
