The creature team played with the idea of Dryden being a Lasat, an alien species first introduced via the character of Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios in Star Wars Rebels (2014). See more »

Goofs

The various card players all hold their hands very loose, which would allow people behind them to see their cards (and possibly communicate this information to the other players). Experienced card players glance briefly at their cards and leave them on the table. The rules of Sabacc may require the players to hold their cards off the table. With the advanced technology of the series, players may consider it worthless to keep the cards down since technology would allow the cards to be seen from any angle, as well as through the table.

True to the saga
24 May 2018 | by djmcghee-69855See all my reviews

As expected, the film has been met with huge criticism, which in my opinion is wholly unjust and just another opportunity for so called 'star wars' fans to voice their disapproval for Disney. Solo is not the biggest and boldest SW feature by any stretch, but it is true to the original trilogy material without resorting to overly complicated plots, ropey CGI effects and forced comedy. It provides action , excitement, great dialogue, romance and a vast array of alien creatures (that were lacking in Rogue 1) and genuinely feels like a SW film, albeit with an interesting western inspired spin. Its Star Wars with everything we love about the saga. If you hate it.. perhaps its time you realised you might not be a SW fan after all.
