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 we will see any of the Death Star in the Solo movie. Two things I hope to see: Han rescuing Chewie and going awol from the Academy, and the incident that ends up in Han owing Jabba massive piles of space dough.
Zapp the pics I've seen of the leaked Lego sets has a little DS trooper and the page I looked at has been removed. LFL only gets them deleted when they are true.

Hmm. Maybe those kinds of troopers aren't explicitly limited to the DS anymore... or the Death Star is gonna be in it and continuity be damned. I really am keeping my fingers crossed that the Death Star doesn't come into play for this movie. We already have 2 movies focused on it (3 if you count the Death Star II), and IMO, don't really need a 3rd (or 4th).

Maybe we don't see it but a squadron are being posted to it.

A DS style weapon has been seen in Ep 2 (as plans), Ep 3 (being constructed), Rogue One, Ep 4, Ep 6 (DS 2), Ep 7 (Starkiller base is very DS like but a planet). I would prefer LFL stop using it but then reality shows that militaries will continue to develop similar weapons until something worst defeats 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 officer.

True, but you'd think the Empire/First Order would consider a different strategy, because every time they build one, they probably lose trillions of space dollars in equipment and personnel when it gets destroyed, which is always.

I really don't think the Death Star will be in the movie.

Anyway, there are rumors that the trailer will be released on Monday. There's also talk about some reshoots going on.

No, in May (May 25th). I'm sure they'll push it to December though. The reshoots haven't been officially confirmed.

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.

Yes, that's why I think it'll pushed back.

Disney released a synopsis for Solo: A Star Wars Story today:
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

Solo: A Star Wars Story releases in U.S. theaters on May 25, 2018.
So, it seems as if the release date won't be pushed to December after all: Big Shiny Robot

Nice. Really looking forward to this one. I'm a lot more in to the spin off movies than this new trilogy. Still holding out hope for a Rouge Squadron movie or something similar that focuses on the fighter pilots. When I first heard the title Rouge One, I was really hype for it thinking it was gonna be about Wedge. Ended up with the best of the new movies so far, so I'm not complaining, but I really wanted that Wedge movie.

Reshoots have happen in the last couple of SW films only a couple of months out so a May release is still possible.
