Solo: A Star Wars Story - What are critics saying about the movie?

The director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, has shared his early thoughts on Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The film, which tells the origin story of Han Solo, premiered in Hollywood on Thursday and drew cheers and applause throughout from the crowds in two historic theaters, the first large audiences to see the finished product.

By comparison, the just-launched Kipling "Star Wars" collection of backpacks, duffels, keychains and other accessories, priced $15 to $169, seem nearly sophisticated. "They showed me the video and I loved it and I got him an agent".

Audiences will get to see Donald play Lando in Solo: A Star Wars Story when the film debuts later this month (May18), and he told USA late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel that he instantly knew he should play Han's old pal.

The keepers of the Star Wars cinematic franchise have had a couple of white-knuckle landings into theatres since Disney bought Lucasfilm and rebooted George Lucas' creation.

The film also injects stars Woody Harrleson (Tobias Beckett), Emilia Clarke (Qi'ra), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (L3-37), Thandie Newton (Val) and Paul Bettany (Dryden Vos) as new characters to the Star Wars universe.

SC petition: It talked about Sridevi's insurance
Filmmaker Sunil Singh had approached the Supreme Court after his petition was rejected by the Delhi High Court. The Apex Court has rejected the request for further investigation in Sridevi's death on Friday.

The incident took place at the junket for the film in Pasadena on Saturday.

Donald Glover's portrayal of the young Lando Calrissian is unsurprisingly getting a lot of love from the audiences.

He's then left dumbfounded as Harrison appears from behind him and tells him: 'Get out of my chair, and get out of my life!' So I had lunch with him two years ago, or something, and he was really encouraging, really supportive.

Details have been released for the upcoming Han Solo Season in Star Wars Battlefront II, which celebrates Solo: A Star Wars Story's approaching June launch.

Check out his entire instagram story review below.

In the meantime, Solo opens May 24 in Australia and May 25 in the USA and UK.
