Synopsis

Young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and his girlfriend, Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke), go on the run in order to escape their lives as slaves. Just as they're about to make it, Qi'ra is caught, while Han goes free. Unable to return for her without being killed, Han vows to find her as soon as he's able. He joins the Imperial Army as a pilot, but they soon demote him to foot soldier when he proves unable to obey commands. He meets a criminal named Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and asks to join his gang, but Beckett doesn't want him. He points Han out to the authorities, who throw him in a pit with a "beast" for disobeying orders. 

As it turns out, the "beast" is Chewbacca. The two escape and find Beckett. Beckett relents and takes the two of them on. It turns out that Beckett has an assignment to steal valuable goods for crime boss and notorious gangster, Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany). 

In need of a ship, Solo and Beckett seek out Captain Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), who owns the Millennium Falcon. Calrissian, along with his droid companion and co-pilot, L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), accompany Solo and his crew on their daring escapades deep within the dangerous criminal underworld.

  • 2 stars "If you never saw a Star Wars movie, this might stand alone. I am glad I paid for Deadpool and walked into Soylo."
  • 3 stars "If this movie had been done with Harrison Ford at a young age it would have been great. The problem with it is that casting does not live up to Harrison Ford's Han Solo. I loved the first Star Wars movie from the time I saw it when it originally was in the theater and even love the newer movies. This one just does not live up to the tradition in the only thing that keeps it from being the worst Star Wars movie is Jar Jar Binks."
  • 5 stars "Don't Listen to na Sayers out there this was a good movie and don't compare it to other Star Wars Series because it was a fresh new take on a character we all Love, I think it was one of my favorite Star wars films, I think in the future people will look back on this movie and like it alot more,,, there was way to much negative PR in the beginning should have been released in fall when there nothing out ,,,would have been a blockbuster when it came out everyone was broke from 3 major film releases,, right after kids spent there money on those movies and graduation gifts everyone is broke in May and June"
