Spoiler Warning – We hold nothing back on any Star Wars movie, book, or show.
Star Wars fans were used to delayed gratification. Under George Lucas the pattern was one movie every three years. It took 27 years for the first six films to complete. Now, though, it’s a much different time as Solo–the fourth Star Wars film in under three years–came out. But can there be too much of a good thing?
The Star Wars Action News crew is back! Join Marjorie, Justin, Chris, Andrew, Jerry, and Arnie for this SPOILER FILLED discussion of Solo and Star Wars movies in general!
Listen to this review, then head to Now Playing Podcast to hear Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart’s in-depth analysis of the film!
