Han Solo has always been my favorite character in Star Wars. The new movie really kept the spirit of Harrison Ford’s performance in the originals, I think.

I really wanted to see this on a big screen, but never got around to it. Glad I can catch it soon on On Demand. Love these movies, so much fun and always an interesting ‘world’ to visit.

I hoped this third set of Star Wars films would be an improvement on the Jar Jar Binks set of films. They were but can’t beat the original trilogy for me.
