Solo: A Star Wars Story flopped at the box office, at least of a Star Wars movie. There are many possible reasons for its failing. Oversaturation of Star Wars films. A May release that pitted it against Infinity War and Deadpool. And a discordant tone from replacing the original directors after half the film was shot. One thing it did right was paying homage to the previous works in the franchise.
Solo is the fourth Star Wars films penned by Lawrence Kasdan and the first with his son Jon Kasdan. Jon has stated he is a big fan of Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki edited by fans. Thus his love of Star Wars history is evident in the many Easter eggs planted in Solo.
