‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Finally Has A Synopsis

There has been little to no news about Solo but LucasFilm has finally released the synopsis for the film. Here it is, courtesy of starwars.com.

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

Okay, this is a very safe synopsis. It doesn’t give any details about the movie whatsoever. What is interesting, however, is the part that tells of his daring escapades. That tells me that this movie will have some exciting and suspenseful moments that’ll hopefully be a blast to watch.

Does this synopsis excite me? Not really, it just shows that LucasFilm is starting to release a tad bit of information on the Solo movie. Hopefully, due to this synopsis coming out, that means the teaser will appear shortly as well.

I thank you for reading and May the Force Be With You.

What I Would Like To See In A ‘Solo’ Teaser

We will undoubtedly see a teaser for Solo in at least the next couple of weeks (I hope) and so, in anticipation for the new Star Wars film, here are the things I hope to see in the teaser that’ll hopefully get me a tad bit excited to see this movie.

1. Chewbacca

Chewbacca will undoubtedly be a major part of the Solo movie considering he’s been Han’s friend for so many long years and what would be more exciting than seeing the iconic Wookie grace the teaser with at least one fantastic Wookie cry? This movie will probably showcase how the charming smuggler and hairy alien became inseparable buddies and I can’t wait to see Han’s reaction when he first meets Chewie. I bet it’ll be one of the highlights of the film for me.

2. Lando Calrissian

Another iconic Star Wars character that will be in this movie will be Lando Calrissean and that’s exciting. He wasn’t a major character in either The Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi but he placed his stamp on the trilogy by being the only person of color in those three movies and having such an unforgettable personality that he became an instant fan favorite. Now Donald Glover, writer, creator, and actor in the hit FX series, Atlanta, is going to replace Billy Dee Williams as the smooth smuggler and I’m very skeptical.

Billy Dee Williams’ performance as Lando was impeccable and is going to be very difficult to replicate. Maybe one or two shots of Donald Glover’s version of Lando in the teaser will relieve me of my worries. Like maybe they could show a quick shot of him piloting the Millenium Falcon. That would be very exciting. All in all, I’m just hoping he doesn’t look corny.

When Is The Teaser for ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Going To Come Out?

It’s January 9. That means it’s only a few weeks ahead of four months before this movie comes out and there’s still no word or even inkling of a teaser coming out for Solo: A Star Wars Story and I have to admit, I’m getting nervous.

I was already skeptical when it was announced that they were going to make a young Han Solo film because why would we want that? Han Solo had just been killed off in The Force Awakens and the thought of a film featuring a young Han Solo without Harrison Ford playing the iconic role seemed daunting to say the least. But after Rogue One I grew a confidence for LucasFilm’s decisions, for even after countless last minute reshoots Rogue One ended up becoming one of my favorite Star Wars films.

And then last year the directors of Solo were fired and my worries about the film were stirred up again. But then I figured the decision LucasFilm made to fire those directors was a good thing and it was going to move this movie in the right direction.

Fast forward five months and it truly feels as if this movie isn’t even coming out this summer, that’s how much publicity they’re not giving to this film. And I know they had to focus on The Last Jedi and not distract from the highly anticipated sequel by bringing out a teaser for Solo but the movie is going to be here before we know it so where is at least a tiny sneak peek of this movie? There is, however, this promo image that came out a few days ago.

These Are All of the Movies I’m Excited To See in 2018

2017 was a fun year for movies and this year is going to be even better in terms of all of the incredible films that are coming out. And so, here are the movies I can’t wait to see this year. Enjoy!

Black Panther

When Black Panther debuted in Captain America: Civil War I was an immediate fan of this marvelous superhero. His suit was sleek and beautiful and his character was a perfect addition to the film. When I found out he was getting his own movie I was so excited! Now it’s coming out in little over a month and I can’t wait to see it break records left and right.

Next week there’s going to be a special preview of Black Panther during the College Football Championship and I believe that it’s probably just going to be an extended commercial but it if is something like an official sneak peek at the movie I’m going to be ecstatic. I can’t wait to see this movie!

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.
