On Thursday, the highly-anticipated Solo: A Star Wars Story had its official Hollywood premiere, only two weeks before it goes worldwide. The attendees have quickly taken to social media to share their first reactions to the Star Wars spin-off about a young Han Solo, played by Alden Ehrenreich. Emilia Clarke as Qi’Ra, Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett, and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian are also part of the movie.
It’s worth noting that the first reactions to the movie are mixed, but most of them praise the reinterpretation of Han Solo’s first adventures when he was just getting into the business. Most of those who saw it are complaining about the first act of the movie which they called a “hit or miss”. Also, Donald Glover received enormous praise for his role as a young Lando. Also, a lot of people admitted that this movie felt more like a classic Star Wars installment than Rogue One. It’s also reportedly full of surprises and emotion, and thankfully, no spoilers were revealed after this initial screening.

Most of the first reactions were related to the fact that the movie is very fun and entertaining. As an intergalactic heist movie, as many called it, the movie does a great job, even if it takes a while to get used to a new actor as Han. It seems that Solo: A Star Wars Story will impress fans as it is very unexpected and fun to sit through.
#SoloAStarWarsStory: It takes a bit for it to find its feet and for AE to turn on enough charm to make you forget he’s not HF. But once it kicks into its hey-let’s-make-a-crew and yes-also-do-a-heist stuff, it totally flies.

As for eventual spoilers, everyone said that people should avoid them by all means. They compared what is going on in the movie with what Marvel has done in the new Avengers: Infinity War. The future of Star Wars will reportedly never be the same after this movie comes out.
Wow. #SoloAStarWarsStory was a TON of fun. Felt more like a Star Wars movie than Rogue One. Don’t look up spoilers! It’s full of surprises.
