Solo: A Star Wars StoryHere we are treated to the first solo (so to speak) origin story for a Star Wars character. Alden Ehrenreich (Stoker) stars as the cocky young flyboy Han Solo, meeting his future copilot Chewbacca and acquiring the Millennium Falcon from suave gambler Lando Calrissian (a perfectly cast Donald Glover). This tries to explain a lot of things that didn't really need explaining and can't possibly be all things to all fans—nevertheless, its an entertaining romp full of energy and action. FULL REVIEW: The now-divisive franchise has fun with a propulsive prequel by Devin D. O’Leary (5/31/2018). 135 minutes PG-13.
