Yes, I was one of the doubters wondering how Solo: A Star Wars Story would stack up against the rest of the Star Wars films. After watching it, I was in love. And Han Solo knew. Now you can get Solo: A Star Wars Story on Digital NOW and on Blu-ray on September 25, 2018. Here’s what you can expect from the Solo: A Star Wars Story Bonus Features.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
I attended the Han Solo Event in May, the press junket for Solo: A Star Wars Story. It was dream worthy when I walked that red carpet. The best part was being able to interview the cast and getting the back story of how and why they became involved with the project.
That’s why I love Bonus Features when DVDs and Blu-rays come out. You get more meat from interviews and behind the scenes footage. It connects and engages you even more to the characters.
My whole family loved Solo, even enough to dress up for me! So if you need a group Halloween costume theme, hint hint…
Solo: A Star Wars Story is a film for the whole family! Check out my ‘Is Solo A Star Wars Story kid-friendly‘ review.
