It’s solely been 5 months because the galaxy far, far-off descended on theaters with The Final Jedi, a movie that divided Star Wars followers after it gave us an older, extra cynical Luke Skywalker. But when some didn’t like seeing their hero in a special gentle, how will they reply to seeing a youthful, much less skilled model of one other beloved determine from the unique trilogy, this time performed by a wholly totally different actor? Based mostly on the primary reactions to Solo‘s world premiere on the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, the film may have the ability to begin therapeutic the rift amongst followers.
Points throughout manufacturing, most notably that Ron Howard reshot a majority of the film after changing unique administrators Chris Miller and Phil Lord who left over “artistic variations,” had loads of Star Wars followers questioning whether or not or not Lucasfilm ought to delay the discharge. But it surely feels like these worries had been a lot ado about nothing.
Right here’s what the Nerdist workforce thought:
I liked #SoloAStarWarsStory a lot. It’s a western. A caper. Humorous with a lot coronary heart. It’s obtained a lot surprises that followers are going to like. Donald Glover is charming x1000. Alden Ehrenreich is a good #HanSolo and simply know I’ve been saying this for years! Fave new #StarWars.

SOLO was SO a lot better than I used to be anticipating! It balanced fan service w/ significant storytelling, and it’s an absolute blast. Filled with Easter eggs & deep lower references. The solid oozed charisma, particularly Donald Glover as Lando & Phoebe Waller-Bridge as L3-37. #HanSolo #StarWars pic.twitter.com/xzXNWleU15

However we weren’t the one ones who left the theater completely happy.
#Solo was a blast. The Kasdans nail the character of Han Solo. Sure, the story is a collection of anticipated occasions (Han meets chewie….and so on) however none of them occur as anticipated. Avoid spoilers, large Marvel-level shit that may make you marvel the place Lucasfilm is headed subsequent.

#SoloAStarWarsStory is reaaaaalllly good. Enjoyable as hell. It’s a straight intergalactic heist film, type of refreshing to see a Star Wars film w/o a Dying Star or the rebel’s destiny at stake. Alden Ehrenreich is tremendous spectacular as Han, however L3 may be my favourite new character.

We’re not precisely shocked these in attendance liked Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian, however some thought it took the film a while to actually hit the hyperdrive, and so they additionally wanted time to get used to seeing Alden Ehrenreich play Han.
It does take a bit to get used to Alden as Han, however after 30 minutes or so your mind adjusts. (Additionally I've now lastly seen Clint Howard in a Star Wars film.) #soloastarwarsstory

#SoloAStarWarsStory: It takes a bit for it to seek out its toes and for AE to activate sufficient allure to make you neglect he’s not HF. However as soon as it kicks into its hey-let’s-make-a-crew and yes-also-do-a-heist stuff, it completely flies.

There’s some enjoyable available with #SoloAStarWarsStory. Ehrenreich was stable and actually loved Glover and Waller-Bridge as L3, however not satisfied we would have liked a younger Han Solo film. Was actually hoping for larger stakes, extra power and depth.
