Every now and then, the far quirkier movie Solo could have been had Philip Lord and Christopher Miller stayed on board slips through (they were fired and replaced by Ron Howard halfway through).
No lightsabers are on display and nor is there any sign of Darth Vader but Solo: "A Star Wars Story delivers exactly what you want and expect from a movie about the young Han Solo".
Speaking with Premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed the studio's plans for a Lando Calrissian movie. Ron Howard is Solo's credited director, but we all know he didn't start out that way, and I confess to spending the first little bit of Solo trying to spot the joints. We finally get answers to some not-exactly-pressing questions, like, how did Solo get his name? Oh there are references-ho ho ho, don't think there aren't copious, winky references, but they're in-jokes rather than any of the "Dun Dun Dun" grave nods to stuff that's coming, as happened in Rogue One and literally all of the prequels.
The main plot involves that aforementioned Kessel Run, a smuggler's route, and a rush delivery of a highly prized but also highly explosive substance called coaxium.
There's a lot for fans to digest as the film speeds through a check-list of Han's origin components, like how he meets Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) and how he comes across the Millennium Falcon.
Without spoiling Solo: A Star Wars Story, there are a couple threads left dangling that could lead to possible sequels featuring Han Solo and Chewbacca.

There are some interesting roles for women, who have characters with fascinating histories and motivations of their own.
What legendary screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan ("The Empire Strikes Back", "Raiders of the Lost Ark") and his lifelong Lucasfilm-devotee son Jonathan Kasdan ("Freaks and Geeks", "Dawson's Creek") have done is transplanted a long list of heist-movie tropes onto the Star Wars framework- a concept that works well enough but never quite breaks any new ground, narrative-wise. As with any other movie in which the original director was sacked and replaced with another midway through production, it's not clear which director or directors are responsible for which scenes.
