Is Solo a Heist Film?

Caitlin and Charlotte deep dive into the storytelling elements of Solo and try to decipher: Is Solo: A Star Wars Story a heist film? We use Charles Kunken’s excellent “Anatomy of a Heist” conventions to decide. Plus, they reflect on Solo as a film almost two years after its release.

Last Shot by Daniel José Older preps us for Solo: A Star Wars Story by bringing us an exciting adventure with Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and a ton of new characters (but also baby Ben Solo). On this episode, we discuss what we liked about the book and how it ties into the saga as a whole. We then discuss key themes throughout the novel: parenting anxiety, the joys of doing what you love, DROID RIGHTS, and change/personal growth. We then swap quotes to analyze. And maybe there’s a surprise at the very end of the episode.
