Back when Solo: A Star Wars Story came out in theaters I was able to take my daughter Eva for a one on one movie event. I don’t often get to do things just with her and while the entire family is full of Star Wars fans, we have a bond with the Star Wars Universe. This started when Eva and I began watching Star Wars Rebels together. This was after her first showing of A New Hope. She had to start with the classics and then work her way through all the movies. She has not seen Episode III or Rouge One yet. That is okay, she is pretty in tune with the violence of movies and those would have been a bit much. Episode III for the Obi Wan and Anakin fight and Rogue One for seeing all those characters perish. But, I knew that Solo was going to be a bit more lighthearted.
I was not disappointed. The movie was very entertaining. There was great action and also humor. I think that everyone involved did a great job with the story and the characters. Eva and I laughed nd were excited to see this story about Han and Chewie and how they got to where they were at the beginning of A New Hope. Because I had watched all of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels I was surprised by the ending but not baffled like many people. I thought that was very cool. There are so many cool moments in the movie. However, watching it with Eva, seeing her get all the references and callbacks was so worth seeing it with her. I enjoyed it so much and cannot wait to watch it again with the whole family. The Blu-ray comes out today and I will surely be picking it up. Below is a whole bunch of informaiton, special movie clips and even a contest for you to win an XBox One! Continue reading Solo: A Star Wars Story on Blu-Ray Today
