Who’s Excited For Solo: A Star Wars Story?

Here’s a great write up of Solo: A Star Wars Story by Variety by Kristopher Tapley. If you’re on the fence about seeing Solo, this article breaks it down and puts the movie into perspective and as to how it fits into the Star Wars Saga.

The article also outlines how Lucasfilm has misfired on hiring the right directors for over half of the Star Wars films (except Episode 7 and 8) since the Disney buyout, and how they made the right choice with Ron Howard for Solo.

“Solo” is the fourth film in Disney’s revamped franchise machine to creatively malfunction: Director Josh Trank exited a still-unmade Boba Fett spinoff in 2015; Oscar-nominated filmmaker Tony Gilroy was brought in to save 2016’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” when director Gareth Edwards’ efforts missed the mark; and “Jurassic World” helmer Colin Trevorrow — who was originally hired to direct the next “Star Wars” movie, “Episode IX,” in 2019 — was shown the door following clashes over the script.

Making a Star Wars film isn’t easy and is serious business, not only from a financial perspective, but from a producer/actor/filmmaker’s perspective, and a fan’s perspective. It’s not easy to have a successful Star Wars film without scoring big on those three perspectives, something even George Lucas had to work hard to do.

The article also lets the reader know which scene George Lucas had a little bit of input on, so check it out!

While I am looking forward to Solo, I’m a little more excited about seeing it after reading this article from Variety. The Nerds will be seeing this film on Friday! We’ll be giving a reaction video and a review show as usual, so stay tuned! Anyone else have tickets yet?
