New To Netflix -- Star Wars: Solo, And More Movies & TV Shows Releasing This Week (January 2019)

Thanks to Netflix you can get caught up on the latest Star Wars movie.


With the new week comes a bunch of new originals, TV shows, and movies to watch on Netflix. From a blockbuster film to a new original animated Godzilla movie, there's plenty to love from Netflix's latest offerings.

The biggest new addition is Solo: A Star Wars Story, the latest film in the Lucasfilm franchise. While the Han Solo origin story may not have been the box office success those involved were hoping for, GameSpot reviewer Michael Rougeau enjoyed Solo, even with its flaws. It's now available on Netflix.

Other new streaming options include the Netflix original film Godzilla: The Planet Eater, which first debuted in Japan in November, as well as a new season of Friends From College. Rounding out the week are original films Sex Education and The Last Laugh.
