On this episode, Dominic, Ben, and Chris continue the SWU Podcast film commentary series by watching Solo: A Star Wars Story. They discuss how the film deals with crafting a compelling origin story for Han Solo, as well as where it falls shot. They also look at how the film handles returning characters like Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian, as well as new ones like Qi'Ra, Beckett, and L3-37. Plus how the narratives surrounding the film impacted the response (and lack of box office success), the return of Darth Maul, the connections to the Rebellion, and how this film changes the way we view other Star Wars films. All this and much more.
