What we want to see in Solo: A Star Wars Story


Now with the most controversial Star Wars movie behind us, The Last Jedi, yet forever one of our favorites, we now are looking toward Solo: A Star Wars Story. 

Still, with nothing revealed thus far but the title, movie posters in theatres, and knowing vague details on actors/actresses and their roles, we are still very much in the dark about Solo: A Star Wars Story. With so much of Han Solo’s story shrouded in mystery, Ron Howard and company have a lot of stories to tell us fans.

I, for one, would love to see that Mandalorian armor gracing the infamous Boba Fett. A possible shadow of what looks to be the helmet of Boba Fett himself recently surfaced. Fett seems to hold contempt for Solo, so learning how that comes to pass would be thrilling.

Also, an appearance of the Dark Lord himself, Darth Vader, would also be a nice touch. Han Solo could’ve run into him once before; there hasn’t been proof he hasn’t. The Empire might enlist him to do some illegal smuggling for them, or could even be pursuing the elusive Han Solo. No matter the case, Solo is always in the middle of some sort of mess.

Of course, the glorious and magnificent Jabba the Hutt will need to have a significant presence. Han Solo employed by the space gangster is a must-see. Han, my boy, was Jabba’s favorite until he got in neck deep in debt with the Hutt. Even Solo gets boarded sometimes.

We could get a band of bounty hunters together like in The Empire Strikes Back but with a few more lines and in action. We could hear the hissing of Bossk, the chirping of IG-88, and partnership of 4-LOM and Zuckuss for the first time on the big screen.

Most of all, the Millenium Falcon. Remember, Lando Calrissian owned the “piece of junk” before Solo won it fair and square in a game of Sabaac. Watching Solo make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs will no doubt give us all major chills.

Han saving Chewie’s life, while the Wookiee doing the same — according to the Life Debt novel — is no doubt going to be an emotional roller coaster.

Lastly, Donald Glover is the perfect man for the job of the suave young Calrissian. Billy Dee Williams did a fantastic job in the Original Trilogy, and Glover will no doubt add even more depth to the legendary character.
