One of the highlights of 2018 for me was attending my very first Star Wars Red Carpet Event! It was, to say the least, a once-in-a-lifetime experience chatting it up with the stars of SOLO: A Star Wars Story and walking in the footsteps of greatness (yeah, I stood “this” close to George Lucas).
If you missed all the excitement (where were you?), here’s a quick list of highlights from my L.A. trip to a Galaxy Far Far Away:
But then there’s the movie itself. I loved SOLO: A Star Wars Story and cannot wait to see it for a third time when the Blu-ray/DVD hits shelves on September 25. (For you streamers, it’s available for digital download on September 14.)
The action-packed journey explores Han Solo’s (Alden Ehrenreich) first encounters with future friend and copilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), as well as his adventure-filled past alongside fellow street thief Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) and career criminal Beckett (Woody Harrelson).
