If you count yourself as a Star Wars fan and you don't have your tickets to Solo: A Star Wars Story, you might want to get a move on, because it appears as if Disney and Lucasfilm have another victor on their hands.
Although Harrison Ford made a fairly definitive exit from the Star Wars franchise in The Force Awakens, many fans wondered if the veteran actor would impart some of his experience as Han Solo to Alden Ehrenreich, the young performer who will take over the legendary role in Solo: A Star Wars Story. However, it's tremendous enough news on its own that the man who so expertly blended practical effects and seamless CGI to kick off the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man and its sequel is crafting the first live-action SW show.

For its most ambitious Star Wars show auto yet, Nissan started with the designers at Lucasfilm and Industrial Light and Magic, who design all the vehicles and weapons you see in the Star Wars films, and took their drawings to Dennis McCarthy at Vehicle Effects in Burbank, California, who specialises in creating custom vehicles for the movies - including the Fast and Furious franchise. Fans camped out for days before the premiere. We've been wary of this one for a while, for various reasons, but the early buzz is that it's a lot of fun-even if it's not flawless. Fans lined the streets, some waiting in-line for hours, just to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars and celebrate another chapter in Star Wars movie history. Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were replaced by veteran filmmaker Ron Howard during production, with shooting stretching on for several months while Howard reportedly reshot much of their footage.
