Critics are calling “Solo: A Star Wars Story” a “non-stop adventure” with a “charming cast.” Some said it starts off slowly, but eventually picks up its pace. Donald Glover steals the show as Lando Calrissian, but Alden Ehrenreich is also impressive in the title role. “Solo: A Star Wars Story” went through a complicated production, but based on first reactions from critics who saw the movie Thursday night, the movie exceeds expectations. It’s no surprise that Donald Glover seems to steal the show as Lando Calrissian, but Alden Ehrenreich is also being praised for his performance as a young Han Solo, a role originated by Harrison Ford. Those are big shoes to fill, and it sounds like Ehrenreich is impressive despite reports that an acting coach was hired during filming.

"Star Wars" is literally about war in the sky, which means that a lot of lives have been lost along the way. But somehow, General Hux is still alive. Some of the characters lost throughout the "Star Wars" films have been in our lives for decades, like Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. And some had small but powerful roles in just one movie that made us shed a lot of tears despite their brevity, like Amilyn Holdo in "The Last Jedi."

Published April 15, 2018 Markets Motley Fool Facebook Twitter Comments Print The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) is a textbook story of the power of business diversification. Although the stock has underperformed lately, reporting a 5% loss for the prior three years while the greater S&P 500 has produced a 27% gain, things could be worse -- the company's television empire, its largest division by revenue and operating profit, is under threat in a world where many are choosing to forgo cable. As an entertainment conglomerate, Disney is better situated than many of its cable-focused peers like Viacom and AMC Networks, which have produced losses of 48% and 32% during the same period.
