Can someone other than Harrison Ford play Han Solo? Can Alden Ehrenreich convince us he’s the young incarnation of our beloved space pirate? I say yes! Now truth be told, it does take a little getting used to, however once Solo: A Star Wars Story finds its footing it takes fans on an adventurous ride. Donald Glover’s performance as Lando Calrissian is spot on right down to the suave and debonaire mannerisms we’ve come to know and love from the character’s predecessor, Billy Dee Williams.
Director Ron Howard gives viewers a glimpse of what society is like living under the depravity and angst of the Imperial rule. With each stand-alone film, fans are getting the opportunity to see a much larger landscape in the Star Wars universe.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is fun and gives fans some unexpected twists and turns. Be prepared for a huge plot reveal at the end.
In celebration of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Nuke the Fridge was invited to the media event where we attended the press junket and got a glimpse of the new Star Wars themed merchandise coming to store shelves. Take a look at some photos and the press conference below.
