Speaking of Luke, Emilia ClarketoldEntertainment Tonight that her Thrones costar Kit Harington (Jon Snow) would be the flawless choice to play the young moisture farmer if he ever gets his own Solo-style reboot.
Billy Dee Williams originated the character of Lando Calrissian in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, but he's set to make his big screen return in Solo, played by Donald Glover. The Kessel Run actually felt like something that needed to be dramatised, and Ron Howard does a really good job of making it a truly legendary mission.
Director Ron Howard ("A Beautiful Mind", "Apollo 13") is known for being a workmanlike deliverer of flawless adequacy through his four decades as a filmmaker.
There were fears that the Disney/Lucasfilm empire couldn't pull Solo off, because original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) were abruptly fired over "creative differences" a year ago, necessitating major reshoots of the story by Howard, and there had been other rumours of on-set tensions. It makes sense as Han Solo, if any character, was the cowboy-esque rogue of the original series to the more samurai-like Luke Skywalker.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge as a droid too earned plaudits.
Solo: A Star Wars Story doesn't hit theatres until next Thursday, and the film's had a rough ride, with Ron Howard stepping in to direct at the last minute after the axing of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and plenty of criticism aimed at its trailers and the film's star, Alden Ehrenreich.
Star Wars:A New Hope - 93%. Ultimately, she isn't given enough to do. It's just yet another interesting connection to the Star Wars lore, leaving more possibilities for story in the future, while giving Davis a more substantial part in the ongoing narrative. Eventually their association with Vos leads Solo to discover an oppressed desert community, Howard's film picking up the thread of belabored wokeness that marked The Last Jedi's most frantic fumbles in the name of political urgency.
Star Wars:Revenge of the Sith - 79%. WritesEntertainment Weekly, "Speaking of Glover, it's no spoiler to say that the Atlanta star is easily the best thing in this good-not-great movie". While all the films in the original trilogy - and even The Phantom Menace - could all be enjoyed on their own, much of the pleasures of Solo is dependent on prior knowledge of who these characters are and who they will become. You can look at the critics consensus posted down below.
