With the red carpet premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story behind us, first thoughts about the film are starting to hit the Internet. One of the bigger names revealing their thoughts on the film is Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. Some fans will read his comments as nothing more than a Disney shill, while others might actually respect them (depends on which side of the fence you are on regarding The Last Jedi), and you have your right to those opinions.
Either way, you can check out his thoughts that he left on Imgur below!

Donald Glover is great in it, but duh. Alden is terrific, he’s not doing a Harrison Ford impersonation but he brings his own charm and swagger to the character. The big surprise for me was Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Bridge-Waller?) who has a few of the funniest moments I’ve ever seen in a Star Wars movie. I had never watched Fleabag (I know, I know, I need to watch it — I’m loving Killing Eve but she’s not in that, she only wrote it) so it was a pleasant surprise. The action scenes are true great. But who’s going to read this and take me seriously? I’d like to think I’d still be honest but it’s not like you’re going to come to my Instagram story for hard-edged film criticism on a Star Wars movie. See it though, it’s super fun. I should get back to writing. Jesus, what have I typed.
