Of the three Star Wars movies produced under Disney only Rogue One, the first of many spin-off stories, truly feels like a Star Wars movie. The other two movies; The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, together as the first two installments of the Star Wars Saga's sequel trilogy somehow lack that tactile charm the original trilogy had and continues to have. For the next Star Wars movie, it would be fair to say that there are low expectations. This is not surprising considering the firing of directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the hiring of veteran director Ron Howard, the plethora of reshoots and the forthcoming trailer being released so close to the release of the movie this May. With so much behind the scenes drama, many news platforms are expecting Solo: A Star Wars Story to be the weakest of Disneys Star Wars movies at the box office. In all honesty, we agree that in all likelihood Solo will be the darkest hour for Disneys Star Wars movies, but there is a chance we could all be wrong, even if that chance is slim...

Lately, fan speculation has led to the inevitable overhyping of certain movie releases. This no more evident than with this holiday seasons The Last Jedi, which before release was praised by the press and movie critics as one of the best Star Wars movies ever made. Yet here we are two months later with an ever-divided fanbase constantly arguing over Luke Skywalker's portrayal in the movie, and also within the original trilogy. Such polarizing receptions have also welcomed recent movies such as Terminator Genisys, Alien Covenant, and will likely welcome The Predator, due in theatres later this year.

The many dramas Solo has already had to endure has resulted in overwhelmingly low expectations from both fans and the critics. With expectations so low, the chance that Solo will be a universal disappointment is almost guaranteed. Yet, with such a low bar set for the movie, there is a chance that it could exceed our expectations, with an even slimmer chance that it could actually prove to be one of the better movies of the entire franchise. Let us not forget that the movie is now directed by Ron Howard, an Academy Award winning director, and stars the likes of Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton and Paul Bettany. Maybe tomorrows trailer will prove to be much better than we feared, maybe.

I think if we go in with a lower expectations then the movie could surprise us, until we have seen more about the movie i think its hard to judge.

Hopefully it will take a more serious route like Rogue One, but maybe its bound to have some Comedy added i just hope its not going to be like a Star Wars meets Pixar like The Last Jedi was.
