Solo didn’t exactly burn up the box office, but Disney will be trying to make up some ground on it when it hits home video this September.
A Star Wars Story
The reasons for Solo’s box office disappointment were not necessarily related to the movie itself. Sure it was a bit of a disappointment for some fans, but it seems like Solo was mainly the recipient of a bit of fan backlash against the previous Star Wars film, The Last Jedi. that one might be the most divisive movie in the series, and fans had wanted to send a message.
As for Solo itself, it’s not anything close to what I’d call “bad”. That’s not to say that it’s among the best Star Wars movies of all time either, but it’s not terrible. Solo is more or less a fun flick, but that’s about it. And the “secret” cameo is pretty neat too. If you want a little deeper of a look, you can check out my review here.
And if you missed it in theaters, then you might want to check it out on DVD/Blu Ray. The movie will arrive on September 14th digitally and in 4k, and on the 25th for every other format (probably not VHS though).
