OK, OK, here's the deal.....because SOME folks didn't like the Last Jedi, now the hate has already started on the standalone Solo - A Star Wars Story movie. WTF is wrong with these SW hating turds? One, Ron Howard is attached as director. He's only one of the best directors in history. Then you have Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan writing the screenplay. You may remember Lawrence Kasdan as the screenwriter from, um I don't know....EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, & Raiders of the Lost Ark!!! Just to name a few. His son Jon is now under his wing and learning from one of Hollywood's best screenwriters. He's also had many writing credits of his own.
The cast is made up of new and seasoned actors for the scruffy nerf herder's journey. It will star Emilia Clarke (Kira), Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Paul Bettany, Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Warwick Davis, Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian). With this cast it sure looks like it's going to be lots of fun.
The biggest controversy with this movie was the switching of the directors when it was so late into the shoot. Here's the deal. The directors were steering the car into the woods headed for a tree, when it came to the character. From all accounts they were making it more of a comedy than an actual adventure movie, like it needs to be. Of course when they didn't see eye to eye, they were let go. Come on folks, if someone is screwing up painting your house....are you going to let them finish that mess? NO, of course not! That is why Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy brought in Ron Howard to direct. Why, because he can do it and make it the way that it needs to be. Ron Howard has proved time and again that he a very capable award winning director.
I for one and very excited to see this movie. From what we have read it is going to be an adventure / height type of movie. Would you want any less from a Han Solo movie? I just hope that all of the TLJ haters who said that they were done with Star Wars stay home and keep their bitching to themselves this time. Written by Kenny Marine - AKA Darth Skippy
