Back in early May, I did an episode covering what Lucasfilm did to celebrate May the 4th (Star Wars Day). One of those things was to release a commercial that, at the time, I didn't want to talk about on the podcast because it was something that I wished I had seen for the first time in the theater while watching Solo: A Star Wars Story. Well, now I'm pulling back the curtain on that one and talking about the moment I thought to myself, "Solo's going to be okay after all." Punch it!

If your only experience with Star Wars is the movies themselves, you may have watched Solo: A Star Wars Story and thought to yourself, "How did THAT character show up at the end of the movie?!" If you're versed in the Clone Wars and Rebels cartoon series, you probably weren't as shocked as everyone else, but still.

On today's episode, the brief history of that character leading up to the surprise Solo appearance, plus a note from the Corrections Department about the error in my box office reporting on yesterday's episode. Punch it!

With all the headlines saying that Solo: A Star Wars Story is a "bomb," is "crashing" at the box office, and other clever things like that, it's tougher to find some positive news about how Solo did over the long Memorial Day weekend. But the details are there, if you only know where to look... Punch it!

Fans skewing the narrative? Bad PR over the director change? Earlier critics' reviews? Memorial Day competition? Brand fatigue? I'm ranking these and a couple other possibilities to explain why Solo: A Star Wars Story is not performing up to its (lowered, even) expectations at the box office. Punch it!

Well, the user scores for Solo: A Star Wars Story on Rotten Tomatoes have jumped from 38% to 58% since its Thursday release, but as we all know, that score is being heavily skewed by people who still have an ax to grind about The Last Jedi. But as we talked about with The Last Jedi, there are a couple of sources for audience reactions that movie studios trust WAY more than any online user review situation. On today's podcast, I'm talking about the CinemaScore and PostTrack results for Solo, comparing them to the results for the other three new Star Wars movies, and sharing what Solo's scores suggest about what its total take at the box office will be. Punch it!

Warning! Spoilers on the show today for Solo: A Star Wars Story. I'm connecting a few threads here, including: the recent news about momentum on a Boba Fett movie; the old rumor about an Obi-Wan movie; the fact that Obi-Wan is causing trouble to a certain gangster in the new comics; the reference in Solo to another (but unnamed) gangster; and the surprise appearance of THAT character at the end of Solo. It's a bit of a stretch, but when you also thrown in our conversation about Lucas, Kasdan, and Kennedy talking about what movies the fans would love to see, and the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ... well, let me lay out the case for a Scoundrels Cinematic Universe for you. Punch it!

As broken by Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter and followed up on by Anthony Breznican at Entertainment Weekly, it seems that there's some motion on a Boba Fett movie once again. Both writers have sources telling them that James Mangold is going to be directing the movie and co-writing the script with Simon Kinberg. I've got the details and analysis of the story here for you... Punch it!

In an interview with Mashable's Chris Taylor, Ron Howard seems to leave the door open to the possibility that George Lucas could direct another Star Wars film someday. It's a very diplomatic answer. It's also utter nonsense, because we all know what Lucas' answer to that would be. Plus, on the big day - the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters - a small favor to ask of the people who aren't into the new movies. Punch it!

It's happening all over again! User ratings are tanking for Solo: A Star Wars Story on Rotten Tomatoes, and the movie hasn't even come out yet. What gives? Rogue One re-wrote Star Wars history, too, but that's still getting lots of love on the movie review aggregator. Let's get to the bottom of this... Punch it!

No one can't predict things with 100% accuracy, but that doesn't stop anyone from trying. And from "unaided awareness" to "definite interest," movie studios spend a lot of time and effort trying to gauge what an audience will do before they every do it. So, what are the predictions saying about the performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story? Punch it!

Ewan McGregor showing up at premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story stirred up a couple of questions. Like, will he have a cameo in the movie? And does this mean that the oft-rumored Kenobi movie could be any closer to reality? Meanwhile, a French reporter misinterpreted something Kathleen Kennedy said at Cannes about future movies featuring Lando, Han, and Chewie, and that got everyone worked up, too! We're sorting out truth from rumor (with no spoilers) today. Punch it!

Solo: A Star Wars Story is just the first, but what does this three-picture deal really mean? Especially in light of the fact that Felicity Jones has an option for a second movie in her contract, but Jyn Erso died in Rogue One? Punch it!

We've been talking this week about some of the films that Larry and Jon Kasdan were keeping in mind as they wrote the script for Solo: A Star Wars Story. But what about Ron Howard? Surely this supremely accomplished director had a few films in mind that might serve as useful touchpoints for his filming? Well, yes, of course! And we'll talk about two of them today: Bullitt, and Rush. Punch it!

Miller's Crossing is another of the films that were mentioned in the Entertainment Weekly interview about sources of inspiration for Solo. Coming up, we have a look at what the movie could also tell us about the relationships between Dryden Vos, Tobias Beckett, Qi'ra, and Han. Punch it!

There's a certain feeling in the relationship between "the kid" and Clint Eastwood in the movie Unforgiven, Jon Kasdan says, that he and his father Larry Kasdan were interested in when they were writing Solo: A Star Wars Story. The source of that info, an interview in Entertainment Weekly, can be misread as being about Clint Eastwood and his son, but it's actually about Eastwood and a wanna-be murderer who calls himself the Schofield Kid. How does this bear on the relationship between Tobias Beckett and Han Solo? That's what we're looking at today. Punch it!

Han as The Dude from The Big Lebowski, and Chewie as Walter Sobchak? It may not be as far-fetched as it seems. In an interview for Entertainment Weekly, Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Jon Kasdan said, "Larry [Kasdan] and I are both huge Coen brothers fans, and we talk a lot about [the relationship between The Dude and Walter] as a reference." On today's episode, we'll talk about the relationship between The Dude and Walter, and how we might see shades of that appearing in Solo.

Larry and Jon Kasdan have cited a number of movies which they used as inspiration while writing Solo: A Star Wars Story. Today, we're looking at "Heat," the crime drama written and directed by Michael Mann. We'll talk about the specifics that the Kasdans referenced about "Heat," and how they could apply to Solo.

The most light-hearted of the four tales in the Canto Bight short story collection that was part of the Journey to The Last Jedi, "The Ride" also ties in many of the characters we met in the three other stories - and turns one man's ideas about luck, probabilities, and possibilities on their heads. Punch it!

The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary by Pablo Hidalgo has a few spreads dedicated to Canto Bight. In the case of "Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing" by Rae Carson, we have a story that involves more of the characters introduced in the TLJ Visual Dictionary than any other we've talked about so far. And this story from the "Canto Bight" collection may have ended exactly during the fathier chase scene from the movie. Punch it!

The galaxy's best sommelier, a bar owner with debts to pay, a pair of sisters who may or may not be from another dimension entirely, and an indentured desk clerk all play roles in creating a legend around a rare vintage of wine, and in creating "a certain amount of confusion about our pleasures," as one sister puts it. It's "The Wine in Dreams," part of our look into the goings on at Canto Bight this week. Punch it!

The swank nightclub-like scenes from Solo: A Star Wars Story, or the outdoor scenes of Beckett telling Han Solo how Beckett's putting together a crew - any chance those are happening on Cantonica? Just a pet theory of mine, and as such, I'm taking a closer look at the planet and its famous casino, Canto Bight, in this week's series of podcasts. Today we start with "Rules of the Game" by Saladin Ahmed. Punch it!

Andi Gutierrez of The Star Wars Show said "probably" when she hinted there could be breaking news announced on Star Wars Day, so her bets were successfully hedged - no big news actually dropped! The "190 Years Old" TV spot dropped, featuring a moment that some fans might rather see in the theater (no spoilers on the podcast), and Solo tickets went on sale. Meanwhile, Tim McMahon from Less Than 12 Parsecs shares a little Droid History via Mad Libs on today's show. Punch it!

It's always fun to get the chance to be on live TV to talk Star Wars, and the occasion happened again on Star Wars Day! On today's episode of the podcast, I'm sharing the interview I did with Todd van der Heyden of CTV News, a Canadian national news network. I was part of a panel with Rianne Hardin of the Star Wars apparel biz Scavenger's Outpost. Punch it!

Part reflective, part fun, all about a passion for Star Wars! It's a little bit looser of a show today, considering the round number and the whole "May the 4th Be With You" business...

Have a listen as I look back at the beginnings of Star Wars 7x7, what we have to look forward to on Star Wars Day this year, and share the results of a game of Mad Libs with Beth Revis, author of the Jyn Erso novel Rebel Rising. Punch it!

More video! Lucasfilm released a tour of the swank inside of Lando's Falcon, led by none other than Donald Glover, and an interview with Solo: A Star Wars Story Ron Howard. That latter video sheds light on Clint Howard's appearance in the movie, and equally as important, the uniqueness of what goes into making a Star Wars movie. Punch it!

You're not going to find the "Rio" TV spot on the official Star Wars YouTube channel (yet), but it's out there ... and I'm analyzing that and the "Crew" commercial for Solo: A Star Wars Story on today's episode. Punch it!

The "Han" and "Risk" TV commercials for Solo: A Star Wars Story include new clips of Han, Qi'ra, Lando, Beckett, and the gang - and it puts more characters in places we hadn't seen them before. Punch it!
