“Calm Yourself Down, Han Solo” | A Movie Review

*Jar Jar Binks voice*

Meesa gots a post for you


*disclaimer: there was not a trace of Jar Jar Binks in Solo. Go ahead and carry on with your life*

Oh, I should probably go ahead and tell you that this post is crawling with spoilers. If you haven’t seen Solo: A Star Wars Story, turn off the internet and watch. that. movie.

But if you have seen it, you’re all clear. Enjoy the post and feel free to fangirl/fanboy with me! 🎉

Where do I begin?

It was beautiful, that’s for sure.

The planets, the people, Enfys Nest.



She was played by the stunning 19 year old up-and-coming actress, Erin Kellyman.

Oh, and can we talk about how L3-37 is everyone’s spirit animal?

She was FABULOUS!! Buuuut she died.

If you were all wondering who Jon Favreau played in this movie, it’s Rio, the monkey-looking creature. HE WAS ALSO A GREAT CHARACTER, BUT DISNEY KILLED HIM OFF LIKE 30 MINUTES INTO IT.

Qui’ra is one of the coolest female characters in this galaxy far, far away, and who else could play it better than the ever so graceful Emilia Clark?

And I don’t know about you guys, but I wanna see her showdown with…er… DARTH MAUL.

I know what you’re thinking: Isn’t Darth Maul dead?

Uh, not exactly.

If you’ve seen the Clone Wars series, you might remember that Darth Maul actually didn’t die. Talk about a plot twist. 😯

Disney sure got it right with casting.


Utter perfection.

I am genuinely surprised with Alden Ehrenreich’s performance. He most definitely has that Harrison Ford-esque manner about him.

I’m going to rate this movie 4 out of 5 stars. Not too shabby! 👌

I think that covers everything. 😀Have you seen Solo: A Star Wars Story? If so, what were your thoughts?

  1. I agree, the casting was AMAZING. Nothing against Emilia Clarke, but her character kind of annoyed me. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I really did like Enfys Nest, too. XD And Donald Glover did perfection with Lando 👌🏻 (so basically I agree with your entire review 😂)

    1. I thought I wasn’t going to like Qi’ra very much, (because I’m a big HanLeia shipper, and I knew she and Han were a thing before seeing it.) But now I see how a lot of what happened with her changed Han into who he was later. And her fight with Dryden was so epic!

  2. YES! I LOVED Enfys!! I was so happy to get to see all the moments in history I’ve always heard about, especially Han running the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs. (Rounding down. ;)) I had a huge smile on my face the whole movie. It was very fun to watch!
