2018 has been and continues to be a whirlwind of sorts for fans of action/adventure movies, especially for Disney. Not only is Marvel Studios having one of the biggest years ever, with both Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War cleaning up at the box office and garnering positive feedback from fans and critics alike, Disney is preparing to release Solo: A Star Wars Story in less than two weeks.
Han Solo’s origin story is a welcomed addition to the Star Wars universe, and while Han is one of the most beloved characters of the series, the film’s troubled production left fans worried about what was coming. Fast-forward to today, and those worries have seemed to disappear as the trailers and TV spots Lucasfilm has released have turned worry to anticipation. Now, with some fans getting a sneak peek at the film, the early reactions are coming in, and it looks like fans of the previous films are going to love it!
Solo: A Star Wars Story is more of what I loved about Rogue One. Most real looking film in the franchise, and the best blaster actions scenes and vehicle chases. #SoloAStarWarsStory

I figured if @DisneyStudios was willing to show 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' a few weeks before release it must be good and it absolutely is. Film is a blast and a welcome addition to the Star Wars universe. @RealRonHoward you did a great job. Congrats. pic.twitter.com/1pkWH2y6qE

Donald Glover, who is starring as Lando Calrissian, is on fire right now. It doesn’t matter whether he’s writing, directing, acting, rapping, or singing, everything he’s doing is winning. It doesn’t look like that’s changed with his role in Solo either…
The first act of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY can be hit and miss clunky. But once Donald Glover's Lando shows up (who is legit fantastic) and the Kessel Run heist plot kicks in, it's a whole lot of fun. (And those who've always wanted a Han and Chewbacca shower scene are in luck.)

After seeing #SoloAStarWarsStory I can confirm one thing: bank on Lando: A Star Wars Story getting a green light by the end of the year. Donald Glover continues to be perfect. pic.twitter.com/ipjq0rcEtX

It’s not just Glover, either. The entire cast seems like they’ve hit the bullseye with this, and it’s got us even more excited to see the film when it hits theaters on May 25th.
Alden Ehrenreich is the real deal, Thandie Newton is who I want to be when I grow up, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s L3… well we’ll talk about that later. ? #SoloAStarWarsStory

#SoloAStarWarsStory is reaaaaalllly good. Fun as hell. It’s a straight intergalactic heist movie, kind of refreshing to see a Star Wars movie w/o a Death Star or the rebellion’s fate at stake. Alden Ehrenreich is super impressive as Han, but L3 might be my favorite new character.
