Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson reviews Solo

Grant SmithMay 16, 2018

Something like this happened to actor Alden Ehrenreich while he was giving an interview about Solo: A Star Wars Story.

When is Solo A Star Wars Story released? With Solo: A Star Wars Movie hitting theaters soon, Nissan once again paired up with the iconic film franchise to do something special.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens - 93%. As most of you already know, actor Alden Ehrenreich, who plays the young Han Solo is signed under contract for three films. "I just couldn't be happier", Harrison Ford said about the young actor.

"[Ehrenreich is] not doing a Harrison Ford impersonation but he brings his own charm and swagger to the character", the filmmaker wrote.

The unknown faces stop there.

As you can see, this thing is incredibly rough-Ford's face is often barely connected to Ehrenreich's body, and seemingly afloat in digital space.

Solo takes a solid 30 minutes or so to find its footing, but once it does - right around the time Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian comes into play - this adventure makes the jump to lightspeed and doesn't slow down.

Glover has been in the headlines under his musical alias Childish Gambino with This is America, an acclaimed song and video that puts the US' issues at its forefront.

The "Atlanta" star said when he got the role, he called his father, even though he wasn't supposed to talk about it yet. But he sees a way out by hooking up with a team of thieves led by Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and Val (Thandie Newton). Lando also has an interesting relationship with Phoebe Waller-Bridge's L3-37, his first mate on the Millennium Falcon, who is sassy, to say the least. However, it's also worth noting that C-3PO have not been seen in any of the Han Solo trailers.

I've seen Solo, and while the review embargo hasn't quite lifted yet, I can tell you that the film looks fantastic.

Fans of Empire Strikes Back will know how clairvoyant this line is.
