So we are getting two stand alone trilogies?
Yes we are.
Hmmm. I wonder if the folks at Disney have ever heard the phrase: "Brand fatigue".

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Han and Lando's friendship... I didn't see a friendship there but a rivalry. That certainly affected my viewing experience due to the decades since TESB of thinking of them as long-term friends that went way back. I hear ya, but think about 2 things: 1. This may not be Han and Lando's only interact...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Zapp don't forget that at the end of ANH that Han proves he has a soft spot for helping when he assists Luke in shooting the DS. Emilia sometimes made Qi'ra be a bit too much like Daenerys in attitude and she isn't the mother of dragons here. Val was under-utilised. It is an enjoyable film. That's ...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

It was decent. The guy playing Han did a passable job, and Donald Glover was quite good as Lando, I thought. I liked Woody Harrelson in this movie more than I expected I would, and I liked how they handled the Kira character as well. It was cool to see that Kessel Run that Han was on about in ANH, a...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

That's an interesting point of view, Zapp, when you think about it. We've had changes in Bond, Batman, Superman, Obi-Wan, and we've accepted them all for the most part. But yet it seems so much harder with Star Wars. That's a fair point, but I would argue in regards to the first three, there is suc...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Even though TLJ was a big letdown, TFA was still very good. With that said, I think I'm still more looking forward to Episode 9 to see how it all ends. However, I have to say that the (re)-introduction of the Falcon in TFA was one of the most exciting moments in that already exciting film and a tru...

But again,. it's Star Wars so I'll see it but Idon't think that this film was necessary. Han's introduction in ANH was perfect as is. Unlike Rogue One which actual...

Yes, as soon as the current story line became evident, the more than subtle hints that had been dropped became clear (especially in the episode before the seadon break). Yeah, that's what I thought was so cool, the fact that a few things that I brushed off as just character development things actua...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Ok, so they have a couple more months than I thought. But you're probably right about the push back if they re-shoot. I did think it was weird that they had another one coming so soon. Pretty sure all the new movies have come out in December.

Maybe we don't see it but a squadron are being posted to it. Maybe Han is scheduled for it, but jumps ship before he finds out the details of his "classified" assignment. I think that would be cool, cause then we can all make fan theories about what if Han had stayed with the Empire and become a DS...

The Death Star?! :shock: Should be interesting to see how it fits into a Han Solo movie... Not sure, especially as Han does call the DS a moon in ANH. Considering they held Wedge out of the Battle of Scariff scene for Rogue One because he says "Whoa, look at the size of that thing!" in ANH, I doubt...

I won't be surprised if it is either a new take on X-Wing series. The old books were popular but since they are no longer canon LFL can rewrite introducing different characters and set in a different time.
I'd be for that. The aerial battle scenes were always my favorites in the OT.

We know that he did not start the Rebel Alliance which later became a thorn in his side, that Mon Mothma and Bail Organa and others did.

All Luke did was act like a [expletive...
