Bryce Dallas Howard thinks 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' is "awesome".

The 37-year-old actress has heaped praise on the newest spin-off of the 'Star Wars' franchise, which was directed by her father Ron Howard, as she believes the production - which centres on the life of a young Han Solo before he teams up with Luke Skywalker in the main series - is "a hell of a movie".

Ron, 64, posted a video of his daughter talking about the movie on his Twitter account, where she said: "My dad was so privileged to be a part of this project, and I was so lucky because I got to actually go and watch him on the set and shadow him and learn from him. I can't remember the last time I saw him having this much fun, and this is a dude who has a lot of fun on a movie set.

"The crew, the cast, the story, I mean, this is an awesome movie. I've seen it many times, so I definitely can vouch for it. Not like anyone needs me to vouch for it. I'm just saying, it's a hell of a movie. It's so good."

Bryce was in London promoting her own hit movie 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' when she recorded the video, but urged people to go and see 'Solo' before her production opens in June.

She added: "Check it now because when 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' comes out, I want you to check that out. So, quick! Run!"

Ron accompanied the sweet video with a caption which thanked his daughter for her kind words.

He wrote: "#SoloMovie greatest review I could ever get...from our daughter @BryceDHoward Wow...thanks Bryce (sic)"

'Solo: A Star Wars Story' was released on May 25, and features a cast including Alden Ehrenreich as the titular smuggler, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, and Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra.

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.
