First 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Reactions — See Why People Are Loving It and Others Just Think It's OK

Some fans are calling this Han Solo origin story a “goddamn delight” and a “wild ride,” while others are shrugging it off as “predictable” and “slow.”

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" lives up to the hype, according to the lucky few who attended the Hollywood premiere Thursday and took to Twitter to sing the movie’s praises.

The first reactions to Disney’s Han Solo origin film are positive, for the most part, with Alden Ehrenreich’s performance getting shoutouts, but as we could have guessed, it’s Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian that audiences are falling head over heels for. And there is apparently more emotional depth than expected, along with Han’s signature sarcasm.

The "Star Wars" spinoff started to worry fans when Lucasfilm fired original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("21 Jump Street") halfway through what was reported to be a troubled production. Fortunately, it appears Ron Howard steered the ship in the right direction once he came aboard to direct the story about how Han met Chewbacca, acquired the Millennium Falcon and became frenemies with Lando. Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson also star in the latest adventure in a galaxy far, far away, which we now can’t wait to see.

See what fans are saying below.
