Donald Glover on Lando's sexuality in Solo: A Star Wars Story

Han Solo's Blas Tech DL-44 blaster used by actor Harrison Ford in the filming of

Lucas and Howard are no strangers to each other, having worked together on Lucas' pre-Star Wars film, American Grafitti. These alien worlds feel gritty, dirty, unsafe and scuffed up. You can see how nice it is via a tour given by Donald Glover himself.

Donald Glover and Alden Ehrenreich dropped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Monday to chat about all things pertaining to "Solo: A Star Wars Story".

Perhaps the biggest disappointment of "Solo" is knowing that it was co-written by Lawrence Kasdan, the scribe responsible for the only great "Star Wars" outing ("Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back") and the equally superb Indiana Jones debut "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Sadly, Ehrenreich is good but not wonderful.

'Disgusted' officials file complaint against man for anti-immigrant rant
Schlossberg did not return calls to his home and office and emails from ABC News seeking comment. And reviewers on Google suggested his law firm be identified as a " Mexican restaurant ".

Now, fans of the space saga can own one of the blaster pistol props Harrison Ford used in his iconic role as Solo in "Return of the Jedi" - an item expected to sell for between $300,000 and $500,000 next month at auction in Las Vegas. The movie is wonderful in spite of Alden Ehrenreich, because he's surrounded by a strong ensemble cast. We'll start with the basics. Han vows to return to rescue his girlfriend, Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) who is apprehended as they flee Corellia. Clarke is virtually unrecognizable with dark hair instead of the blond tresses she wears on "Game of Thrones". The newly formed dynamic duo join outlaw Tobias Beckett (Woodie Harrelson) and his first mate (Thandie Newton) as they attempt to rob a rocket train loaded with priceless fuel cells. It's Tobias who gives Han his famous blaster, and warns the younger man to trust no one. Actor Donald Glover plays Calrissian, and now he's addressed two major topics: Lando's sexuality in the film and whether or not he would be interested in playing the character in a standalone spinoff. We just went to see what was out a couple of days ago and there is barely anything on the shelves. Dryden Vos is a crime lord who has the scars to prove just how much he's lived through.

The movie stretches out too long, and could have dropped a few subplots and action sequences that feel tacked on at the end. It's rated PG-13.
