Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and the scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
With the emerging demand of hyperfuel and other resources, Han Solo finds himself in the middle of a heist alongside other criminals, where they meet the likes of Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian in an adventurous situation exposing the criminal underworld.
During an interview on IMDb Me (2018), director Ron Howard explained that he always tries to give his wife, Cheryl Howard, a cameo in his films since she is his "good luck charm." She had indeed shot a scene for Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018), but this scene ended up being deleted from the final cut. One day, Howard shared his regret over being unable to include his wife in the film with special effects technicians at ILM. They subsequently shot her against a green screen and digitally inserted her into another scene in the movie to give Howard his "good luck charm." See more »
The various card players all hold their hands very loose, which would allow people behind them to see their cards (and possibly communicate this information to the other players). Experienced card players glance briefly at their cards and leave them on the table.
While an Earthling Poker Player may consider this a goof, the rules of Sabacc may require the players to hold their cards off the table, or with the advanced technology of the series they may consider it worthless to keep the cards down since technology would allow the cards to be seen from any angle, as well as through the table.

Like Rogue One, this film does not feature the "Crawl Text" that the main "Episode" films have. However, it does contain a brief text passage (in the same font/style of the "Galaxy Far Far Away" text describing the plight on Corellia. See more »
I'm a big Star Wars fan (watched Empire Strikes Back in the cinema when I was 8 years old) and I loved this movie. With Empire Strikes Back and Rogue One, my favorite in the series.
As for the movie itself, my opinion is that it's a solid adventure movie, in the style of the great Indiana Jones movies, with lots of fun and intense action, witty dialogues, great humor and solid acting from all actors.
Yes, Han must meet a certain Wookie, obtain a certain spaceship and meet a certain curly hair character to maintain coherence with past movies, but the "necessary" scenes, even if expected are still brilliantly developed. On top of these scenes, there are several surprising scenes that run the gamut of the best of what the Star Wars universe offers: chases, spacecraft battles, shootouts, aliens galore and lots lots of anti laws of physics split-second solutions.
Still, my favorite take from this movie is that they finally managed to shoot an amazing movie that is far from the epic good-evil battles of previous Star Wars movies, and this is completely in tune with the Han Solo character (and, btw, I think Alden Ehrenreich is a perfect match for the role).
In summary, if you think the movie is "unnecessary" and not needed, it will indeed disappoint you and I would advice you not to watch it, but if you go to watch it with a no-expectations open mind, I think you'll be greatly pleased and much entertained.
(and my excuses for any English mistakes; my mother tongue is Spanish)
