How The Solo Millenium Falcon Doesn’t Make Sense + Review

This blog post was supposed to be published a lot earlier. WordPress glitched and it didn’t.

I watched Solo about a week ago and decided to review it. After the review, I wrote about how the new Millenium Falcon doesn’t make sense.

SPOILERS AHEAD NOW. IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN SOLO YET AND DON’T WANT IT SPOILED, THEN GO READ SOMETHING ELSE!!!

Now for the review:

I think the main reason that it did badly at the box office was that it was right after Infinity War and Deadpool 2.

The first part was kind of bad. First, it had no opening crawl like all other Star Wars movies. (Except Rouge One.) I don’t even have to mention that Lady Proxima was way worse then Jabba.

Lady Proxima
Someone maybe tell me who this is? Lady Proxima is just really weird.

His speeder chase was good though. The Imperial checkpoint was kind of cool because it showed that the Imperials were meeting rebellion on some planets. They arrested someone every minute or so. Qi’ra was trapped on the other side of the wall when she and Han made a dash for it.

Then Han goes to the Conveyex. I like that part with Enfy’s Nest and the huge explosion. Unfortunately, two of the guys died. They should not have killed Rio.

 

After that, Han goes to Dryden Vos’s big yacht. There, he meets Qi’ra again. She runs away with Han over to Lando, and Han gambles with Lando. Lando cheated and Han lost the bet. He didn’t have the ship that he said he had though. The ship he claims he has is the same ship as the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels. It is made on Corellia just like the Falcon.

Lando took Han to see the Millenium Falcon. (Because there is no opening crawl, that is the first time that the “Star Wars Main Theme” plays.) They went to Kessel to steal coaxium so that Dryden Vos wouldn’t kill them.

Coaxium
This is Coaxium when it is refined.

Han and his friends made a distraction that way he and Chewie could steal the coaxium. They managed to do it. Their distraction was a massive slave revolt on Kessel.

To go refine it, they had to do the Kessell run. Everyone almost died at the hands of a giant black hole. They used coaxium to give the Falcon a huge boost. With that speed, the Falcon’s paint wore off, and it turned grey. Han also fired the escape pod so the Falcon had its 2 prongs instead of the 1 long prong.

Enfy’s Nest is revealed to be a group of rebels. They find out on Savareen which is the planet they go to refine the coaxium.

That’s basically what happens. Overall, it was better than I thought it would be.

TOPIC SENTANCE The issue is that it doesn’t make sense. In Revenge of the Sith, you see the Millenium Falcon landing on Courascant. That takes place before Solo, and it is not white and doesn’t have the new front prong.

I drew the circle on a tablet. Forgive the sloppiness.

This is just a little thing I noticed before I started writing my review.

Solo: What We Know So Far

This is what I know about Solo: A Star Wars Story so far.

First, the Millenium Falcon. It looks way different for a couple reasons. The prongs are the most noticeable. Instead of looking like this:

Millenium Falcon

It looks like this:

Solo MIllenium Falcon

The biggest difference is the front prong. The other difference is that the Falcon is white. If you look closer, you can see the laser cannon is different. It is a lot more noticeable on the Lego one:

For those of you who don’t know, besides Han Solo, the other main characters are Chewie and someone named Q’ira.

According to the teaser trailer, Han was a criminal since he was 10. That means he was probably an orphan. He was kicked out of the Imperial Flight Academy. How he could have got in being an orphan, I don’t know. He did, though. Chewbacca looks the same as ever, but he has 2 bandolier straps. For a quick moment in the space storm (that’s what I think it is), you see a TIE fighter with some sort of bulb on one side of it:

After that, you see the Millenium Falcon fly through a bunch of tentacles.

Teaser Trailer

In trailer 2, you see Han tell Lando Calrissian, “I heard a story about you, is it true?” Lando replies “Everything you heard about me is true.” Han might be going up to him to play sabacc to win the Millenium Falcon. Lando Calrissian seems to have a droid. There is also a new type of stormtrooper called the range trooper:

You see them fighting Han Solo on a train that might be on Coreilla. If it is, then Coreilla is a snowy planet. Next, Han discovers that Chewbacca is 190 years old.

That is what I know so far about Solo: A Star Wars Story. If there is anything I missed, then tell me in the comments.
