    • Solo: A Star Wars Story

      Solo: A Star Wars Story is the second of the Star Wars anthology films.
      The film follows a Han Solo as he leaves Corellia to become the best pilot in the galaxy, and finds a mentor in the form of Tobias Beckett. Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca are also heavily involved.
      The film was due to be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, but the pair left the project due to creative differences during production and were replaced by Ron Howard.
       
      Official Synopsis
      Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
    • Does Solo live up to the hype? The reviews are in!

      The arrival of Solo: A Star Wars Story has been eagerly anticipated, but critic reviews are now pouring in following the star studded premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this week.
      Reviews so far have been mixed, but generally favourable, which seems about right for a new Star Wars release, but the real test will come when the film opens to fans on 25 May (24 May in the UK).
       
      New York Times branded the film "the usual galactic mayhem", saying that Solo answers many of the questions that you never asked, and ScreenRant called it solidly entertaining with a few surprises along the way.
      "Family friendly action" was The BBC's appraisal, who said that it ticks all the boxes, and Forbes said that the film opens up a whole new new corner of the Star Wars universe with a pure dose of adrenaline.
      Rolling Stone applauds Alden Ehrenreich for "upholding his end of the bargain" in portraying the titular scoundrel, but felt that the movie plays it way too safe.
      AV Club were less impressed, saying that Solo was "intellectual property unconvincingly arranged into the shape of a movie", while The Times claimed that the film was "devoid of ideas".
       
      Solo: A Star Wars Story is currently sitting at 72% on Rotten Tomatoes.
    • Star Wars: Lando: Double or Nothing

      Star Wars: Lando: Double or Nothing is a 5 issue Marvel Comics miniseries.
      The story focuses on Lando Calrissian and the droid L3-37 before the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
      Issue one will be released on 30 May 2018, with a trade paperback collecting all 5 issues out on 6 November.
    • The Weird and Wonderful names of Star Wars

      A promotional tie-in for Solo: A Star Wars Story has introduced us to some great new characters we can expect to see, including the fantastically monickered Therm Scissorpunch, a crustacean-like alien with huge lobster claws for hands.
      But despite being derided as the dumbest name in Star Wars, Therm Scissorpunch is actually quite in-keeping with tradition if you only look a little.

      First up is everybody's favourite death stick dealer: Elan Sleazebaggano frequented the clubs of Coruscant before he left to rethink his life in Attack of the Clones. Although later retconned to Sel’Sabagno, Sleazebaggano is typical of the tongue-in-cheek naming convention we often see with background characters in Star Wars.
      Did you ever hear the tragedy of Notluwiski Papanoida? This background character appears in Revenge of the Sith in the corridors of the theatre. The name Notluwiski isn't too bad until you realise who the actor is: it's a cameo by George Lucas.
      Sith names also seem to be chosen for their thinly veiled meanings. Darth Maul was trained to be a weapon, and was named after one. Sidious has an unavoidable similarity to the word “insidious”, which means to act in a subtle but harmful way; much like how Palpatine chips away at the old Republic. Even Plagueis has connotations of ill intent.

      In The Clone Wars animated series, Count Dooku takes a secret apprentice with the not too subtle name of Savage Opress. There are no prizes for guessing what his endgame is.
      It would be easy to see these seemingly ridiculous names as a feature of modern Star Wars movies, but they are present in the classic Star Wars trilogy too.

      Return of the Jedi is full of interesting characters, like the elephant-like Ephant Mon, Droopy McCool of the Max Reebo band, and let's not forget Jabba the Hutt’s jester Salacious B Crumb. And if individual characters aren't enough for you you could always speak to Admiral Akbar, a member of the aquatic Mon Calamari species.
      Perhaps Starkiller was a bit too on-the-nose for the boy who destroys the Death Star, but these other names do make you wonder why they bothered to change it to Skywalker!
       
      We eagerly await the release of Therm Scissorpunch: A Star Wars Story.
       
      In the meantime, Solo: A Star Wars Story debuts on 25 May 2018 in the US and 24 May in the UK.
