Solo: A Star Wars Story | Episode 2

Solo: A Star Wars Story was a surprisingly good movie, given that we didn’t care for the most recent two releases in the Star Wars Universe.

Lessons Learned from Solo: A Star Wars Story:

When you see an opportunity, take it.

  • Signing up for the Imperial Order; meeting Beckett and joining him

Anti-lesson: Assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed.

Real lesson: Don’t have expectations, plan as much as you can and improvise when necessary.

  • The anti-lesson was Becket’s point of view.  Sky doesn’t prescribe to that as it’s a negative, unfriendly way to go through life.

Think outside the box for solutions to your problems.

  • Making it through the Kessel Run in record time.

Know how you’re going to win before you play.

  • Gambling between Han and Lando.  Lando has a “card up his sleeve” but it ends up back-firing on him late in the movie.
Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian

Think a few moves ahead of your opponent.

  • Becket’s teaching Han, and we can learn from Becket as well

Assume people will let you down.  Understand that heading into anything.

  • Becket (played by Woody Harrelson) betraying Han at the end
