Experience the fun-filled move, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” available on Digital 9/14 and on Blu-Ray on SEPT. 25th! #HanSolo

You know to never tell him the odds. Even if you're not the most Star Wars savvy person in the world, most of you probably know that Harrison Ford was Han Solo in the Star Wars episodes 4, 5, 6, & 7. This is a character that is well represented, loved, and revered in the world of science fiction movies. The cocky, brash, quick-witted space smuggler is a well-known character, and in Solo: A Star Wars Story we get to see how the older version of Han we all grew to love was shaped. I was very fortunate to be able to walk the red carpet for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and I just loved this movie. My family and I were excited to check out this new Blu-ray!
 Alden Ehrenreich is taking up the mantle as the scruffy looking (much younger) nerf herder. We follow the scoundrel on a series of daring missions across the galaxy, along the way he runs into a large hairy walking carpet that goes by the name Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), he comes face to face with a notorious gambler and original owner of the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).  Phoebe Waller-Bridge who plays the droid “L3-37”, is a real scene stealer, I have to admit I laughed out loud a few times in her scenes.  

Lucasfilm’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” directed by Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Ron Howard—the creator of unforgettable films, such as “A Beautiful Mind,” “Apollo 13,” “Parenthood” and “Splash”—took moviegoers on this summer’s wildest ride with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy, Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich). The action-packed journey explores Han’s first encounters with future friend and copilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), as well as his adventure-filled past alongside fellow street thief Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) and career criminal Beckett (Woody Harrelson). Watch instantly on Sept. 14thas the Millennium Falcon sets course digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and on Movies Anywhere, and bring the adventure home on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on Sept. 25.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” bonus content takes fans behind the scenes to experience compelling discussions with the star-studded cast and screenwriters Jonathan Kasdan & Lawrence Kasdan (writer of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi); a revealing feature on Chewie and his enduring friendship with Han; a close-up look at the original version of the Millennium Falcon and Han’s first time piloting the infamous ship; the creation of the film’s otherworldly settings and pulse-pounding action sequences; and eight never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes.

Directed by Ron Howard, the fun-filled galactic heist movie stars Alden Ehrenreich (“Hail, Caesar!,” “Tetro”), Woody Harrelson (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “The Messenger”), Emilia Clarke (“Me Before You,” “Game of Thrones”), Donald Glover (“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “The Martian”), Thandie Newton (“Gringo,” “Crash”), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag,” “Killing Eve”) and Paul Bettany (“Captain America: Civil War,” “Master and Commander”). Joonas Suotamo (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) returns to play Chewbacca. Written by Jonathan Kasdan & Lawrence Kasdan, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel. Lawrence Kasdan, Jason McGatlin, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are executive producers.
We see Han joining in a band of scoundrels put together by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), they then run afoul of Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany) and the Crimson Dawn. That's just the tip of this fast-paced and fun action-adventure. This is the Star Wars movie we've been looking for! After the Force Awakens and Last Jedi, this is the exact type of movie we as Star Wars fans needed. Sure the movie is chock full of action, but it's also not as grim and dark as the last 2 movies and just allows you to sit back and enjoy.
The extras on the Blu-Ray are just amazing it was great to hear from the cast, and to see how they made the Milenium Falcoln come to life. I just love seeing the deleted scenes, it is great to see how a scene could have changed the pace of the movie, and made it better or worse. There are hours and hours of extras, so many that there are plenty more for the family to check out and enjoy. Check out these fun bonus scenes:

I was impressed with Alden Ehrenreich's take on Han Solo, he was very aware of who he was playing, this is a role that spans over 40 years and 4 movies. People will be ready to nitpick everything wrong with how he plays this well-known character. In my humble opinion, he nailed it. He was a young Han Solo, within the first 15 minutes of this movie I was hooked. From top to bottom, from the casting, the writing, the production quality, this is a fun movie. Have you seen Solo: A Star Wars Story, what did you think? I would love to hear what you thought of the movie? Are you going to pick up Solo: A Star Wars Story on DVD or Digital?

SOLO: A Star Wars Story is now available on Digital HD and arrives on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray DVD and On-Demand on September 25th!
