Now the story of some space pirates who spent years hustling one other, and the one intergalactic heist that by chance brought them all together. It's Solo: A Star Wars Story. Directed by Ron Howard (who took over for original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller), it stars Alden Ehrenreich as the title character (who inherited the iconic role from Harrison Ford), and features supporting turns from Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. Star Wars vet Lawrence Kasdan wrote the script with his son Jonathan.

It's only been a few months since the last Star Wars installment and here we are again to discuss this next standalone film. (If you haven't already, please do check out Stefan's thoughts and Marc's book on The Last Jedi.) Does Solo make for a good story, or even a necessary one? Is Han Solo a great character who transcends time and space, or was it Harrison Ford who made him timeless? Let us know in this open spoiler thread what you think of Solo: A Star Wars Story, its place in the franchise, and which characters ought to headline the inevitable next standalone.
