Spoilers Ahead: Solo: A Star Wars Story has arrived, the Millennium Falcon and Chewbacca are back with Han Solo himself. Darth Maul and Lando Calrissian all return and Emilia Clark join the Star Wars universe.
The team talks about and rates Solo: A Star Wars Story. Filip and Cassie get annoyed by the movie being fan service, showing how Han got the name Solo, how he got the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian, when Han got his famous blaster pistol, how he met Chewbacca. And the biggest spoiler, Darth Maul appears at the end, so is he alive, or is the timeline wrong? Neil also discusses the good old Crocodile Dundee and Bosch.
There is no Harrison Ford this time in A Star Wars Story, but Han Solo as played by Alen Ehrenreich does a good showing us a young Han, and goes well with his love interest Qi’ra, played by the star from Game of Thrones, Emilia Clark. Lando Calrissian was played by Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino), and he was charming and funny, although his character changed later in the movie. Woody Harrelson and Thandie Newton did a good job supporting the young main cast in the movie.
Why was Han so casual with Qi’ra when they meet again, instead of wanting to run away? How did she survive this whole time and what did she do? What are the things in her past that she can’t talk about?
The end of A Star Wars Story movie left so many questions. A hologram appeared with Darth Maul, who was famously killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi. He is meant to be dead, so how can this possible. And why is Qi’ra choosing to work for Darth Maul, and leaving Han Solo behind? You have to also wonder if there is going to be an independent Darth Maul movie coming soon.
