I'll hold my judgments until I've seen it, but I really do have to agree that Alden probably wasn't the best choice for young Han, and for one major reason

 

I'm sure he can emulate Ford's acting, and he kiiiiind of looks like him a bit, I guess? But the main thing that breaks immersion for me is he sounds absolutely nothing like him. His voice just doesn't have the right timbre. Harrison Ford is a guy with a pretty deep voice. Though not as much as now, it was somewhat gruff even when he was younger. He's the sort of guy who you can hear clearly even if he's talking to you from across a room. From what I've seen in the trailers, Alden's voice just isn't like that

 

But eh, we'll see. I'm not all that invested in Anthology movies, anyways

I have a feeling they'll kill Chewbacca in this one, After all, they already killed Han, Luke and are forced to write out Leia.

Not really feeling it tbh. I'm still disappointed they fired the original directors because they went too much off-script. I really liked their style.

 

Donald Glover looks good though (doesn't he always?)

Doesn't look too terrible this time around. But then I remember TLJ's trailer looked good too and all faith goes out the window. Can't say I like Han nor Lando too much, Chewie's stealing the show.
Also notice the droid is played by Phasma. She was so AMAZING in TFA and TLJ, would she get more than 2 minute screentime here? Even chromier?

Won't watch it in cinema. Sorry Disney, you've brought that on yourselves.

Sounds just like her, doesn't it?

It's actually Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

 

Probably grew up around the same place, I'm thinking?

Also, the droid's name is L3-37? (as in 1337?, hello fellow kids)

It just doesn't look star wars... for 80% of the trailer.

 

I'm boycotting this movie! In less dramatic words, it just doesn't look like a good movie. It seems like a rehash of guardians of the galaxy with a Han Solo reskin. Since, when is Solo a "driver?" are they trying to cross dress FNF into star wars? 

 

I am curious to know what people think of this movie after seeing it though, I wonder if the backlash or fan division on this movie will be the same as that of TLJ.

Honestly, this was expected.
Since Han says something like he doesnt believe in the force, it probably means there is no showing of Force in the movie, which is kinda essential for SW.

Thanks. Could have fooled me... did infact fool me.

Also, the droid's name is L3-37?

Atleast it's not Thorm Scissorpunch? *groan*
But yeah, another really bad name. After Yo Momma we now got L33T in Star Wars. Really, Disney?

I doubt any backlash will be as big, even if the movie is worse. After all it's not a part of the Trilogy / "Series". Even if it may potentially ruin a legendary character doing so.
The more interesting thing is... do people actually show up to watch it and give it that 150M opening they aim for or does TLJ leave it's mark and leave cinema's empty. It's literally got all eyes on it for that reason alone.

Eh, I don't agree. Rogue One was fine, even if it did have one Force scene. There was a reason many people were looking forward to Star Wars 1313.
There's more to the franchise than Jedi and Lightsabers.

And as soon as the filmmakers understand that we might actually get some good "different" movies. Not cloning V and VI and pushing that out as a "bold and new direction".

Is it so much to hire people to come up with better names? The most interesting and I dare say it, iconic Star Wars names were created both through research and several drafts. Luke Darklighter/Starkill and General Deathwater were going to be Luke and Vader, respectfully. (Sound familiar?).
Whoever is in charge of naming in the new films seems to keep the first name that comes to mind and does nothing further.

I would love a SW movie on non-force users, that's definitely something the Solo movie has going for it. I was disappointed when Rogue One didn't have a jedi only to insert a jedi wannabe monk.

 

The fan love for Mandalorians would be a prime example of SW fans caring about more than just the Jedi/Sith LS/DS Force aspect of SW. '

 

But I will watch and see how people react, and how well the Solo movie produces. I don't want the movie to fail, but I have low expectations of its success.

This is also my main gripe.

 

Like this trailer much more than the teaser, though.

WARNING! MASSIVE SPOILERS!

 

Although it's a rumour, if true, oh boy... this is going to be yet another massive disaster.
