Donald Glover Is Purposely Avoiding 'This Is America' Comments

Solo Premiere: How the Mysterious Star Wars Spinoff Played to Its First Audience

Given that he has already directed one Star Wars films and is attached to create more, Johnson admitted that many of his fans might think his opinions would be suspiciously positive.

The film's premiere in Los Angeles last night marked the first screening offered to the press and people couldn't contain their excitement at seeing such a truly "epic" origin story for one of the greatest heroes in the galaxy.

Keep an eye on Buzz.ie for our full review next week. It was built for the premiere.

Solo hits theaters everywhere May 25.

Composer John Powell reveals the track listing for his Solo: A Star Wars Story score/soundtrack.

It's called the Skywalker Saga... you know, the original timeline of the Star Wars films.

And there was a simultaneous debut at several Hollywood cinemas for 2015's The Force Awakens, which was the return of Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill to the franchise after a 30 year hiatus.

Johnson has officially gone on the record, calling Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story "great" and "super fun", while also praising Alden Ehrenreich's portrayal of Han Solo as an original one, filled with "charm".

In "Solo", the younger Lando "doesn't know what he's quite doing yet", Glover said.

"Then", Glover said, "I got a large cheese pizza, and went home and watched "Empire Strikes Back'". Johnson also lauded the movie's action sequences, Donald Glover's performance as Lando Calrissian, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Lando's robot sidekick, L3.

And it seems that loyalties between the Mother of Dragons and the King in The North run deep, as Emilia Clarke is doing her bit to get Kit Harington a role in Star Wars.

Williams attended the premiere, as did "Star Wars" creator George Lucas.
