The latest installment of the Star Wars series, SOLO: A Star Wars Story, might actually contain one of my very favorite scenes, ever. This Star Wars film is centered around Han Solo and his bromance with my favorite character, Chewbacca.
Chewie is seriously my very favorite for many reasons, including his absolute commitment to all people, especially his friends.
He is truly a best friend to Han and this film showcases the beginning of that amazing friendship.
This Friday, September 14th, SOLO comes out on Digital for download and on September 25th, it’s available on BluRay and DVD!
Here are my 5 best (no spoiler) reasons you’ll need to add this amazing piece of entertainment to your library.
5. Because Your Collection Is Not Complete
Sure, is Star Wars the kind of movie series you can pop in at any point in the saga and enjoy a film, solely on its own? Yes. Absolutely. However…knowing the whole story REALLY helps you understand all the players and pieces and it’s just magnificent. You really need to add this film to your collection and cherish it…and then dust it off and watch it regularly.
4. The Millennium Falcon
Even if you’re not a die hard Star Wars fan, The Millennium Falcon is surely a name you’ve heard. And if you haven’t, for the love of God, just watch The Empire Strikes Back or Return of The Jedi…or hey, SOLO is coming out on Digital and BluRay/DVD soon..watch that one! The Millennium Falcon is THE ship of all ships for Star Wars. It’s quite possibly considered an actual character of the film series and SOLO features a very swanky, pretty much brand new, Lando loved-on Falcon. It’s pristine and amazing…and again, brilliantly given to us in this storyline.
3. The Comedy. The Writing. The Directing.
The Star Wars films have never been short on comedy, great writing and directing. And this one is directed by one of my favorites, Ron Howard. It’s Ron Howard, people! He’s someone you can absolutely trust with Star Wars. I think this film is done brilliantly and I cannot wait to watch it again.
Ron Howard + Star Wars + Iconic Character History = Love.
2. The Beginning Of Something Amazing
Chewie & Han. This is all I need to say. Chewbacca is my very favorite Star Wars character and I don’t ever have to sit and think about why. Chewbacca does what needs to be done. He loves his friends. He’s loyal. He’s funny and he’s always got Han’s back. I nearly cried watching what I’ll call “the mud scene” in this movie. The friendship of Han and Chewie is what I call #FriendshipGoals. And SOLO showcases the start of something fantastic.
1. The BluRay/DVD Extras!
Oh my goodness, I wish I could divulge to you the amazing behind the scene conversations, deleted scenes and features you will get with this movie, but I can’t! You will have to see for yourself. That is all I have to say about that.
