My ‘Solo’ Movie Tweet Quoted by Director Ron Howard – Then My Twitter Notifications Went Crazy For Days

I usually post about my art and graphic design work on this blog (one of my drawings is below, right), but I had no idea where else to put this.

On June 6, 2018, I drove to the theater for a matinee showing of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” I rarely leave home to see movies at the theater, but I’m a big Star Wars fan, so I’m willing to make a trip to the theater for about anything Star Wars.

Before Solo was ever released in theaters, though, I was already seeing fans online and movie reviewers trashing the movie – and most of these were not individuals who even saw a pre-screening.

I have no idea how it’s possible to hate a movie and pan it as being awful before actually even seeing it, or merely based on a trailer or two, but that’s what happened.

I kept an open mind prior to seeing the movie. I did not pre-judge it or the actors.

I thought that the young actor who took over the Solo role, Alden Ehrenreich, did just fine, though some Star Wars fans are obstinate about forever associating Harrison Ford, who originated the portrayal, with Han, so they are refusing to give another actor a fair shake at the character.

» My Battlestar Galactica Art Used by Fifth Ground Entertainment

This post has been updated farther below)

My Cylon drawing might be on a television show to be aired in late June 2015.

I was contacted by a lady who works for Fifth Ground Entertainment (a link to their page: Fifth Ground Entertainment’s Reelside page), and she asked if they could use my Cylon drawing in an upcoming episode of their “Reelside” program, and I said yes.

You can watch a trailer of the upcoming episode here on You Tube (my artwork does not appear in the trailer, however, not that I could see):

  • Episode 1×04 airs Thursday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO Canada on The Movie Network. Available on TMN GO starting June 26.

I sent the lady my art files last Friday (June 20, 2015), but so far have not heard from her. I e-mailed her again on Monday to ask if she received the files. I did not get a response.

I then e-mailed the Fifth Ground information e-mail address (today, June 24th) to check on the status of this project and so far have not received a reply.

I am assuming at this point that my art will be used in the episode but am not totally sure because I’ve not had a confirmation since sending the art in on the 20th.
