Another Great Star Wars Story to add to your Entertainment Library
I’m sure if you check the average family’s entertainment library, there is a A Star Wars film included. If you’re not one of those families, now is a great time to become one. Star Wars Solo rolls out a great Star Wars story while highlighting and updating key characters in the franchise. The September 25 DVD release includes never before scenes and behind the scenes footage.
My family and I have fluctuating schedules mostly due to my blogging schedule, so we aim for one movie night a month and this will definately be at the top of our list.
The SOLO DVD has bonus content that takes fans behind the scenes to experience compelling discussion with the star-studded cast and screenwriters Jonathan Kasdan & Lawrence Kasdan who also wrote Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi).
Here are three new things (out of many) that you’ll learn about Star Wars Han Solo
Ron Howard sat down with the star studded cast for an intimate and entertaining discussion about the film’s making. A hot topic was “who did you first tell when you got the call that you had been selected for “the” role?” I think fans will appreciate the actors and actresses genuine responses and heightened level of excitement as they are all fans of Star Wars too. Hint, they reacted like you think they would…I mean it’s Star Wars!!!!
Chewie is probably one of the most loved characters of Star Wars. He’s so loyal to his human counterparts. SOLO really took time to highlight the story that reveals Chewie and his enduring friendship with Han. Included are also behind the scene footage of their big mud scene shown early on in the film. It’s no surprise why Joonas Suotamo played the role. He was born built for it.
Remaking the Millennium Falcon
Track the transformation of the most famous ship in the entire galaxy! Experience through new footage Lando’s swank and impeccable pride and joy to Han’s stripped-down hot-rod freighter with special modifications. There is a scene that shows the actual computer generated design of the Millennium Falcon and it’s simply amazing! I can only imagine what it would feel like to take a ride around the galaxy in the updated Millennium Falcon.
I was invited to a special press day at Disney Studios in Burbank, CA and Ray Park was on hand to personally make sure that we knew how to work a Saber Light. You know, just in case… This was a truly memorable experience. The excitement in the room was at 100!I couldn’t possibly pass up a photo op with Chewbacca! What a great guy or Wookie! Just in case you’re wondering Joonas Suotamo was not in costume on this day.
