Critics deliver verdicts on Solo: A Star Wars Story

17 May, 2018, 05:13 | Author: Lucille Rivera

The latest film in the Star Wars franchise takes the viewer through a series of daring escapades with young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) meets his future co-pilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).

Westworld and Solo: A Star Wars Story star Thandie Newton plays sci-fi characters unafraid to wear their personalities on their sleeves. Lucasfilm cites translation issues between their president Kathleen Kennedy and the journalist from the French publication, Premiere.

Speaking in an interview with Premiere France, she said that a new instalment could centre around Glover's Calrissian. And though Kennedy's remarks don't guarantee a Lando spin-off, they do prove that the studio is well aware of Glover's global appeal-and is ready to capitalize on it. It seems like that story could be told in what's likely going to be Lando: A Star Wars Story.

However, as fans began celebrating the news on social media, a LucasFilm representative was forced to clear up the claims, insisting Kennedy's remarks had not been accurately translated.

The company's Facebook page is no longer active, though other retailers are still selling Smok-E Mountain-branded mods. A report from the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner confirmed that the vape pen led to the death of Tallmadge D'Elia.

Thandie has previously spoken of her pride at playing a character she described as "the first woman of colour to have a prominent role in the "Star Wars" legacy". But to no one's surprise, it has an 81% audience score.

It added: "Ultimately, this is a different kind of Star Wars film to any that have gone before, with only hints of the main saga's bigger fate-of-the-galaxy picture".

Do you want to see a Lando movie? While Solo: A Star Wars Story has to set up the origin of a character fans know so well, Lando is a character who still has a lot left to define in his life. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie".

Glover portrays Lando Calrissian in the film, a role originated in the original "Star Wars" trilogy by Billy Dee Williams, and has received much praise for his performance already.
