  |  @   |  

Earlier this year, box office analysts predicted that Solo: A Star Wars Story would have record-breaking box office numbers. However, the film fell well short of that in its opening weekend, and its numbers continue to fall.

Even though the film was still number one at the box office in its second week, it saw a 65% drop from its opening weekend.

How The Kasdans’ Script Helped Ron Howard’s Approach To ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’
  |  @   |  

Solo: A Star Wars Story is the second of the Star Wars spinoffs. The films are a part of a larger anthology of stories that may not have Jedis but are still a part of the same universe. Directed by Ron Howard, the film follows the adventures of a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) as he navigates the dangerous criminal underworld. Along the way, he will make new friends like his future co-pilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and the smooth gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). This journey will set the course for one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

We sat down with our fellow journalists to talk to Howard and screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan at the film’s press day. There we talked to the three about the challenges of making a Star Wars film, bringing a new Han Solo to life, and the film’s moral ambiguity. Check out what they had to say below.
