Han Solo was my first crush when I was a little girl, and now it’s time for his story to be told in Solo: A Star Wars Story. I used to collect Star Wars cards with bubble gum sticks and stare longingly at Harrison Ford. So when a Han Solo movie was announced, I wondered who and how they were going to cast that scruffy-looking nerf herder. After watching previews, I can’t wait! Follow along May 9-12 as I head to Los Angeles for the #HanSoloEvent. Here are the details!
Thank you, Disney, for inviting me to the Han Solo Event and providing travel and accommodations. All opinions on my infatuation with Star Wars, General Hospital, pixie dust, and Disney are my own.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
So the main event is the red carpet premiere in Los Angeles for Solo: A Star Wars Story. This is the first time bloggers have been invited to the premiere and in past events, they haven’t been able to watch the entire film. So I am stoked!!
You guys and we’ll be going to the after party!! Be still my Star Wars heart.
Plus we’ll be interviewing some of the talent in the film. More details on that soon. Fingers crossed on that list is a name that starts with Donald and ends with Glover. Goes by the nickname of Lando.
ETA: We got our interview list, and I am dying!! So, no Donald Glover, but that’s ok, because I’m so excited for who is on the list!!
Han Solo Event Interview List

Send me all your questions, people!!
I also love that we’ll be learning more about Chewbacca’s story, too. He’s a favorite in our house!
General Hospital Nurses Ball
When I first announced that I would be attending the #HanSoloEvent, I also hinted at a behind the scenes peek of General Hospital. So many people messaged me about it!! The General Hospital fandom lives on!
I would watch with my mom when I was younger, and then I caught the bug in high school and college. I mean, hey Sonny Corinthos. Sure, I was heartbroken when Steve Burton left to go to The Young and the Restless, and I still may not have gotten over that. But I’m willing to make amends with the Nurses Ball.
Our experience will highlight the Nurses Ball, which you know, that’s when all the good stuff happens! They also said we would have casual interviews with talent who are available!!!
Peter Pan on Blu-Ray
Have you ever heard the phrase, Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust? Well that comes from the hit Disney film, Peter Pan, which flies into homes on Blu-Ray on June 5th. I love that little sassy pixie, Tinker Bell.
We’ll take a tour of Walt Disney’s office and then follow our pirate map on a scavenger hunt on the Disney Lot. Game on, because treasure is at stake!
We’ll also visit the Animation Research Library and see original drawings from the film! Follow me @LolaLambchops on social media, so I can share all the fun with you while it’s happening.
A Wrinkle in Time Blu-Ray
A Wrinkle in Time will also be hitting Blu-Ray on June 5th! We’ll get a glimpse of Bonus Features that are included on the DVD. Those are always my favorite, because they include behind the scenes footage and you get more of the how and why a film is made.
We’ll also have a Q&A with Deric McCabe who plays Charles Wallace in A Wrinkle in Time. He was fantastic!
