After its less than stupendous run in theaters, Solo: A Star Wars Story is making its way to digital services and home video.
The Han Solo origin story had a troubled production, with directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie) being fired after much of principal photography had been completed. They were replaced by Oscar winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind), who re-shot much of the film and tried to make the two styles work. The result is a muddled but acceptable Star Wars adventure, with some highs (Bradford Young's cinematography) and lows (the predictable twists). Donald Glover's performance as Lando Calrissian is in a class by itself, since sometimes he does an accent and sometimes he doesn't, but looks incredibly stylish for the entire film. It debuted in first place, but made less money overall than even Return of the Jedi 35 years ago.
The Blu-ray and 4K UHD releases include a roundtable with Ron Howard and the cast, writers Lawrence an Jonathan Kasdan discussing the script, deleted scenes, and lots of looks into some of the film's big setpieces. Fans can pick up their physical copies on Tuesday, September 25. But if you just can't wait, it will be available on digital platforms on Sunday, September 14.
