Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote Solo: A Star Wars Story. Both Ehrenreich and Glover showed off clips that should get even the most pessimistic of us excited. In addition, they talked about what its like to take over these iconic roles and the advice they got from Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams. Apparently Ford’s advice involved complaining about Ewoks while Billy Dee kept it simple (and charming as always). Click through to watch the interviews!
Following the world premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the first reactions to the film have begun to show up online. Unsurprisingly, Donald Glover’s portrayal of Lando received universal praise from the attendees who have shared their thoughts so far. Several attendees also praised Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s performance as L3. But what about Han Solo? The early word of mouth is largely positive, although some admitted that it takes time for Alden to find his footing and for your brain to adjust to seeing someone besides Harrison Ford play Han Solo. The most common takeaway from these early reactions seems to be that this film is fun first and foremost. Premiere reactions are almost always universally positive, so as usual take them with a grain of salt. Head over to Nerdist to read through the early reactions yourself!
