In the latest episode of Star Wars Time we dedicate the entire show to Solo: A Star Wars Story’s home release, in particular, the near two hours of bonus content that comes with it. We, and you should already know that the movie is great, but like any good Star Wars fan Nick and I went right to the bonus content to see if any interesting insights could be gleaned from them.
As it turns out, there are a few interesting bits of information scattered throughout the bonus content, so those are the items we focus on. We discuss the roundtable discussion between Ron and his cast, which provided a few insights into the film’s production. Most notably, we finally found out what George Lucas did while he visited the set when Ron took over the shoot. He essentially provided direction for the scene in Lando’s closet between Qi’ra and Han, on how Han should handle the cape she hands to him. George said Han wouldn’t hang it up, he’d just toss it aside, which is what we get in the movie.
We also talk about the deleted scenes and which ones maybe should have stayed in the film. There are at least three that we felt shouldn’t have been cut, but there were also a few stinkers.
Finally, we talk about the other informative featurettes, as not all provide interesting information, so we try to highlight the ones worth watching.
