Relive the Adventure at Home with Solo: A Star Wars Story

When it was announced that Disney was going to release a Star Wars movie every year, the ideas of movies that would come out felt endless. As fans of the Star Wars movies, we all have ideas of what movies we would like to see or what characters we want explored on the big screen, but with the vast amounts of characters it will be hard to please all of the fans wanting to see their idea of Star Wars on the big screen.

When Rogue One came out it gave fans a great look as to what we can expect from the stand-alone movies that will be released. While it may be one of the better movies to come out from the recent wave of Star Wars movies, it boiled down to a heist movie set in a galaxy, far, far away.

With the recent release of Solo, we get another heist movie about our favorite scoundrel and while it did not get the critical acclaim that Rogue One got, it is still a good movie that needs to be experienced. Here are our five favorite moments from Solo.

The Game of Sabacc

We have heard the stories about how Han won the Millennium Falcon from Lando many times, but in Solo we actually see the game take place and it does not go as well as you think it does.

The Millennium Falcon

Did you ever wonder why the Falcon has the gap in the front or wonder what modifications Han has done to it? We get to see the Falcon as it originally looked from the outside and how Lando had it decorated on the inside.

That one fight scene not shown

Yeah, I know that sounds really vague, but if you have not seen the movie I don’t want to ruin it for you. Let me just say that Qi’ra uses a certain fighting style to take down a foe.

The Kessel Run

All these years I thought the Kessel Run was a race, who knew?

The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship

We get to see the how Han and Chewbacca meet and became friends.  Also, the snowball fight scene is pretty fun to watch.

Not only can you see these scenes but also you can explore a whole lot more on the Blu-ray and DVD. Check out the features that are waiting for you.
