It's a good, great week for 'Star Wars' fans!

This week we are getting treated to movie we always wanted to see, a Han Solo origin flick. 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' hits theaters May 25th and we finally get to see our favorite smuggler in his prime.

The movie takes place about 10 years before 'A New Hope,' when Han had a fateful encounter with future Jedi Master Luke Skywalker on Tatooine in 1977.

While we are all excited to see this, many of us die-hard fans are very stern on a few things, shall I bring up who shot first with Han and Greedo as an example (btw it was Han)? I wouldn't go as far to say that these things need to happen in 'Solo' in order to make the film great, but many fans will be left empty-handed if this film explains nothing about his earlier life.

But I don't think that'll happen, and we will actually all be pleased with the outcome of this movie.

Don't forget all this week on SoJO win movie passes to see 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' at Harbor Square Theatre in Stone Harbor with Heather DeLuca and Jv Joe!

Here are five things we need to see, and probably will, during 'Solo: A Star Wars Story.'

    How Did Han Get On Jabba's Bad Side

    When we first meet Han in 'A New Hope,' he is a smuggler working under evil gangster Jabba the Hutt. Han is one of Jabba's best smugglers but without any explaining he angered Jabba to the point of putting a bounty on his head so large that he wouldn't be able to set foot near any civilized star system.

    From then on he is on the run from Jabba all the while helping Luke and the Rebellion destroy the Empire.

    I really hope we get to see Jabba in the film and the exact moment Han gets on his bad side.

    Han's Homewold

    This is literally a blank slate, at least for me. I couldn't tell you anything about the planet Han is from, not even the name.

    This would be a great introduction into the world that Han grew up on , possibly meet his family, and show us why he is the way he is.

    How He Landed The Millenium Falcon

    Even the most basic fan knows that the Falcon had at one point belonged to his friend Lando Calrissian, he even noted in 'Return of the Jedi.'

    And even when we saw the ship for the first time in 'Episode IV,' it was as Luke pointed out, "a piece of junk."

    So nothing would please me more than to see the famed ship prior to the "junk" it became years later.

    Maybe it has new ship smell!

    The Kessel Run

    The event that we've heard about but never saw, The Kessel Run.

    Logic says this HAS to be in the movie, right? This is what gave the Millennium Falcon it's fame throughout the galaxy by making the run in less than 12 parsecs.

    I think it's finally time to see it, enough talk.

    How Does He Meet Chewbacca?

    This is obvious. Han and Chewy are inseparable, until 'Episode VII,' spoiler alert) and they are right up in famous duos.

    It would be a travesty if they did not show us the most important meeting between two characters in the history of film.
