I will 110% see this for Glover as Lando.

But, everything else just feels... off, to me. Most of all Ehrenreich doesn't look or sound like Solo, especially not a Solo who is supposed to be, what - 5 years prior to ANH? 

I maintain we don't need this story to be told, and there's so many more that cold be. The very best case scenario is that don't do damage to the character. Anything else is a loss.

Seriously, why couldn't this be the Land fucking movie, and if they needed to, have young Solo be a smaller part of it?

I expect it's not a Lando movie, because they think Han Solo movies will sell more tickets.

We'll have the Uncle Lars story before we know it.

I understand this feeling, it's how I was going into Ep 1 with Obi Wan being played by Ewan McGregor - now he's sort of more Obi Wan Alec Guinness.

I don't want someone doing an impression of Han anyway, you can't sustain that for a whole film without it seeming a bit shallow.

As to why this is Han's film and not Lando, I think that's kinda obvious it's his mainstream appeal although I am hopeful that they could have a dedicated Lando spin-off in the future.

I'm very pleased with the aesthetic choices that Ron Howard has made, it looks gritty but gorgeous.

Time will tell of course but I'm pretty hyped and people close to the production say that it's going to be very well received.

Switching directors mid-stream, and the scarcity of details this close does not usual bode well (seriously only getting the teaser trailer 3 months before release for, a Star Wars film, is crazy!)

But hey, I'm not pre-judging, just speculating based on what's out there. I'll see it, I'll give it a chance, I may love it. I hope I do. But at this stage I feel like I won't.

Prove me wrong, Howard!

I'm not concerned about the trailer thing - understandable they didn't want it to interfere in TLJ hype and marketing. It's not the same as the Marvel universe where they can promote multiple vehicles at the same time.

As for the film - I am 200% in on DG as Lando, and about 5% in on AE as Han.

So that's 2 new trilogies. 
Plus whatever other stand alone anthology films that want.

 

We're getting a new one every year between now and the heat death of the universe, right?

Meh to this.

Game of Thrones creators? I know everyone's pissed because he writes at glacial pace, but seems harsh on GRR Martin.

You're probably getting 2 a year from 2020 till the end of the universe to be more precise.

Plus...apparently there are two TV shows to be announced shortly, probably 1 cartoon and one live action both to be carried on Disney's new streaming service due to launch in 2019.

On Solo and the Directors kerfuffle - I think it shows Lucasfilm's commitment to quality that they spent the money to fire Lord & Miller and reshoot like 90% of the film with Ron Howard.

I would be more worried when the first 'meh' Star Wars film comes out with no kerfuffle cause that will mean that they've moved onto just milking the last bits out of it.

Right now I think it's the most exciting time to be a Star Wars fan, lots of new content which isn't the main Skywalker saga .

GOT is finishing next year regardless of what GRRM does.

At least this likely means their ridiculous Confederate show is on the backburner.

Quote from: Briuss Uilliss on December 01, 2013, 04:52:46 PMAt the state of art, after last season, thinking of a "winning" and "beautiful-to-see" team is like to pretend to have "a full wine barrel in cellar and a drunk wife in bed".

Latest trailer still have me not feeling to confidant. 

But seriously, DG .... Nailing the mannerisms and vibe totally of a younger, less reputable and more cocky Lando perfectly. 

I'll pay just for that

Wasn't Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo so unconvincing they made him get acting lessons? The production has been a disaster but I've read that Howard has been a breath of fresh air on the set.

I loved the trailer, I think my only lingering doubt about the film is Woody - I don't like him in SW.

"I've gotta really good feeling about this..." 😀
