Ron Howard narrates Star Wars in Arrested Development mash-up

  Ron Howard narrates Star Wars in Arrested Development mash-up “Now the story of a family that wants to rule the galaxy and the one son who had no choice but to save it.” It’s the official Star Wars–Arrested Development mash-up as narrated by Ron Howard. The mash-up is a recap of Star Wars: A New Hope in the style of Arrested Development. It begins with Princess Leia claiming she doesn’t know anything about stolen Death Star plans (“she actually did,” Howard chimes in) and ending with some perfectly timed Bluth family life advice. “And that’s why you always leave a note,” Howard says as we fast forward to Luke Skywalker getting his hand chopped off. There’s talk of Jediism being “a religious cult,” Boba Fett becoming the new Mr. F, and a shoutout to Howard’s own Star Wars film. “‘You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? It’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.’ Hey! That would make an interesting movie,” he says. “Go see Solo: A Star Wars Story, only in theaters May 25.” With the “on the next Star Wars” ending line, we’re hoping Howard agreed to narrate all the Star Wars movies. If not, there’s plenty more Arrested Development goodness all around us. With season 5 premiering “soon,” Netflix announced a remix of the fourth season. So instead of separate story lines for each character, they’ll now be interwoven in the 22-episode arc with Arrested Development Season 4 Remix: Fateful Consequences, dropping this Friday. Meanwhile, the Mitchell Hurwitz-created series broke into the Marvel universe with Avengers: Infinity War.

But in the case of Solo : A Star Wars Story , the initial meeting of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian looks like it might be something special. Donald Glover has been our favorite thing about the new movie since he was announced, and so far his Lando is living up to the hype…or at least

'Star Wars' Writer Confirms Lando's Sexual Fluidity In 'Solo' .
Since the beginning of the “Star Wars” saga, we’ve wondered whether LGBTQ characters exist in George Lucas’ galaxy far, far away. Up until 2018, there had been little to no queer representation in his decades-old franchise. And then “Solo: A Star Wars Story” happened.The film centers on a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich ) and his associates Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). “Solo” gives fans the Millennium Falcon backstory they had been pining for, with plum new defining character details. One of the more notable ones: Lando appears to be pansexual.
