Hyperfuel is in demand now and Han, after escaping Corellia finds himself helping a band of criminals so he can earn enough to buy himself his own ship. He meets his future co-pilot Chewbacca and brings him aboard. Later he meets Lando Calrissian and the trio help the criminals rob a mine of the super rich fuel.
I am a Star Wars fan and have been since I went to the theaters to see Episode IV when it first came out in 1977. I had been really looking forward to this one. The story was ok, one would guess that Han came from this kind of background. I did like how he met Chewy, that was kind of funny. It did not meet my high expectations though, especially after Rouge One which I thought tied in nicely with episode IV. We got to see how Han met Lando, Chewy, how he got the Falcon and even how he got his name! It is a pity that Disney does it now, it should have stayed in the hands of Lucas and his vision, Disney is more money hungry than a quality film maker. (Ya, Ya… spoken like a true fan I know!)
The sets and CGI were excellent but film companies are so good at that now! The acting was all good but I was still not blown away by the film but yes, I am a true fan so I will obviously see it again. Hell, there are enough of them know that I can devote a whole weekend to binge watching them, in chronological order of course! That’s my take, sorry, I can only go three for this.
