The Star Wars geek in me is jumping up and down, because my inner geek and I get to attend an early screening of SOLO: A Star Wars Story on Monday. I am totally stoked to preview this film early with Triton! This way, I can stew in my own Stars Wars juices as I prepare to give you a decent review as soon as I am allowed.

Early Screening of SOLO

Han Solo is one of those iconic heroes that has grown over the years to become bigger than life. The role Harrison Ford created is the stuff of legends (literally) and so this prequel of Solo’s younger life is incredibly compelling. Come on, you’ve always wondered how he got so rakish and brave. Now you will find out!

I mean, check out this trailer for a glimpse of what’s to come in this film.

SOLO: A Star Wars Story

The movie will officially debut in theaters everywhere for Memorial Day Weekend, beginning May 25. I’m sure we will see it more than once, since every Star Wars movie ever made cannot be absorbed in one viewing. Too many Easter Eggs!

Check out these stills from SOLO: A Star Wars Story:
