Interesting - so new scenes in the Solo novel - a military tribunal - if this was originally in the film its interesting that they deleted it - perhaps because we are gonna see one in episode 9???:

Wonderful insight from the novelization of Solo: A Star Wars Story by Mur Lafferty

This article/blog and the excerpts at https://www.starwars.com/news/solo-a-star-wars-story-exclusive-excerpts-2

They expand upon What happened in Qi’ra’s time away from Han? What became of L3-37’s consciousness after Kessel? Who did Enfys Nest work with to fuel the rebellion?

Random sad thought I had from seeing the upcoming DVD deleted clips, but Qi’ra has to have died between the end of the Solo and when the OT starts. Because he’s introduced as being already in deep sh*t with Jabba over dumping the cargo and then his arc is about how further in danger he gets. Just thinking as with Jyn and Cassian’s explanation that they’re dead, same has to be with Qi’ra because she basically saves him from Vos. So at same point she likely gets killed because of the path she’s on in that world

Dark side, never try it kids.

With the animated series it wasn't noticeable, but Maul badly aged. There is only twenty years between TPM and the Solo events.
I'm still glad Ray Park reprised his role, the rumour of Maul in the movie is what motivated me to see it.

Jon Kasdan shares many Solo thoughts on Twitter.









Some of the above have been causing some ripples online, namely in regards to Val, who I do think got the short end of the stick.

That was really fun to read, just like the movie was so fun to watch! I especially liked to read points no. 6, 21, 29, 36, 45, 48, among others.

Remember when there was that full breakdown of all the cinematic references to classic films in TLJ? Now there's one for Solo. Between the novel and the home video coming out, it's been like a mini Solo revival recently.

Parody/Critic videos of Solo to celebrate its home release.



I liked Solo but I still laughed at their comments on SW fatigue and that they should have waited winter, the darkness of the film and the Solo=Han's wookiepedia page is spot on.
Be careful of the comments section, some people will nicely remind you Solo is better than TLJ and TLJ is trash that has killed SW. Rolling Eyes

I forgot to mention I finally watched Solo a few weeks ago. I don't have much new to add unfortunately. I definitely hold it in higher regard than RO which is just so forgettable with forgettable characters (aside from Cassian perhaps) but pretty visuals - a common Gareth Edwards trademark (the superior Gareth is Gareth Evans, that's for sure). None of the spinoffs hold a candle to the ST for me.

Anyway, I did enjoy it but I was extremely tired and sleepy for the first half at least, which meant I didn't have the analytical part of my brain switched on. Powell's score was nice. Didn't like L3. Alden did a pretty good job as young Han. Enfys Nest was great for what little screentime she had. Her theme is fantastic.

Surprisingly, considering I'm not a big fan of Emilia Clarke, I really liked her here. Dryden Vos was a great and creepy villain bolstered by a very solid Paul Bettany performance and the Qi'ra/Dryden Vos subplot was the highlight of the film for me, particularly the denouement and climax, which was staged remarkably similar to Snoke's death in the throne room, complete with elevator scene and all. I thought some of these parallels were going to be subtle and a bit of a stretch but that wasn't the case at all. I'm surprised I haven't seen more discussion about this outside of Reylo circles.

Of course, as already mentioned, the dice are all over the film, LOL. Going into the film many naturally assumed there would be Kylo/Han parallels but it turned out to be with the morally ambiguous and complicated female character, Qi'ra, instead. Qi'ra's an interesting one. The promotion played her up as being a traditional femme fatale, but honestly, watching the film, I didn't get that feeling at all? We get to see a bit of her youth, realise she's Han's childhood sweetheart, see her terrible situation with Dryden Vos where she's basically been made a slave and groomed. Femme fatale's tend to have mysterious backgrounds to retain that allure. And although there was the betrayal, hers was more of a 'stuck between a rock and a hard place' situation. I don't think she's an easily defined character who can be stuck into any one box easily, and like Kylo, she subverts expectations. Definitely the two most interesting new characters to emerge from Disney Canon, which is pretty funny, because I would say they are the two least 'disneyfied' characters.

@Kylo Rey - great review of Solo and I agree with lots of your points. I also saw the movie for the first time recently and I ended up liking Qi’ra’s character a whole lot more than I initially thought I would.

Someone forgot to submit the very good musical score for Solo on time, so it is not eligible for an Oscar. This film has suffered so much already, it feels like kicking someone while they're down at this point.

I forgot to say I finally saw Solo a couple of months ago. I think as more time goes by I really find that I enjoyed it a lot. The only things that I tend to have a hard time with are the things I had ideas for in my head all those years of how they happened like Han meeting Chewie and the Kessel Run. As well as I think how Val and Durant deserved more screentime. But if you scrap away all of those things it's a fun time. I especially love Qi'Ra. She was such a layered and great character. Lando also equally stole the show. You could truly feel her history with Han and where we see Lando and Han during TESB. I equally loved seeing Maul, L3 standing for droid rights, Han and Lando playing cards, any scene at Drayden Vos', and really more. I really need to watch it again as I feel the lows will only get higher as I let go and watch it more. It's far from perfect but it's a good time. Smile
