My review of Solo: A Star Wars Story is finally here! I went to the Thursday, May, 24th showing, and filmed that weekend. I initially didn’t think I had that much to say about the movie, but my original recording was around an hour and 45 minutes long. It took me over a week to edit this down.

So, here is my review of Solo: A Star Wars Story…fashionably late as always. In the review, I give my first impressions of the overall tone of the movie, most of the characters, plot points, and I even make comparisons to how things were handled in Star Wars Legends material, such as the Han Solo novel trilogy from the nineties.

Once again, thanks so much for the patience with this one. If you enjoy this video, please give it a like, and if you haven’t already, Subscribe for more Star Wars content! I’m continuing Star Wars month into June, so be sure to stay tuned!
