Solo: the legacy of Star Wars

It’s Opening Weekend, so don’t expect any spoilers here. I don’t do that.

What I will say is that Ron Howard did the franchise justice; and so did Jonathan and  Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote the screen play. The actors did, as well… Alden Ehreneich may be a little shorter than Harrison Ford, and his eyes are the wrong color, but he was a young Han: a bit cocky, ready to take a chance, loyal to those who are loyal to him.

Sometimes, prequels don’t work. They mess up canon, or ignore important aspects of an established character. Solo doesn’t do that. It works. Like Rogue One worked. Probably better than Phantom Menace ,  Attack of the Clones, or Revenge of the Sith. Maybe because they are focused on one canon character, or two, and not several.

Star Wars is one of those wonderful series that stands the test of time. I was in my teens when A New Hope came out. My daughter was raised on the original trilogy, and the animated Clone Wars series and Star Wars Rebels series. Someday, I fully intend to share it with her children, as well.
