    The only confirmed Star Wars films coming are Solo, Episode IX, and the Rian Johnson trilogy. The Obi-Wan and Boba Fett movies are only rumors at this point, though Obi-Wan is highly likely. I don't know where you heard about a Vader movie. That isn't happening.

    I honestly hope they leave Vader alone as much as possible. Sure, slide him in Rogue One and Solo a little bit here and there just to remind us he's around and give us a little Vader action now and again, but I really hope they never do a stand alone. He's a great character and villain that is made greater by being shrouded in mystery. They could do a post-ROTS/pre-ANH and use him as a/the villain and if done well I'd be happy, I just don't really want them to explore the character much more, if that makes sense. Save that for the books & comics.

    I'd definitely be interested in an Obi Wan movie with Ewan and even more so in a Luke Skywalker movie with Sebastian Stan set in the time shortly after the events of RotJ. I think those could both be interesting.

    Both fake. Both fan trailers. Kenobi uses footage from Last Days in the Desert, a movie in which Ewan MacGregor played Jesus. Vader used footage from Rogue One.

    Yeah, if they explore anything between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy, I want a Luke Skywalker movie set halfway between them starring Sebastian Stan.

    I think of all the potential stand-alone films set in the OT/PT/ST time frame, this one has the most potential without having to take a ton of liberties. We know exactly where Luke was at after RotJ and we know exactly what happened to him 30 years later. And we've got enough info on the in between to fill in the gaps and there's just so much there to explore regarding his growth & training, what he learned about himself, the galaxy & the Force. Probably even enough story there for more than one movie, maybe a whole trilogy, who knows. Hardest part would be doing all that without having Leia and Han around in some capacity, but they could explain that all away pretty easily. Send Luke on a grand spirit quest, going all around the galaxy trying to understand the history of the Jedi & the Sith, expanding his own abilities and such. It's just a very rich situation with a ton of room for expansion and what would appear to be the perfect actor for the role who happens to already be employed by Disney. Seems like an absolute no-brainer to me.

    That's gonna be the biggest hump for most people I think, whether the movie is any good or not, if you can't accept Ehrenreich as Solo then there's no way you're gonna like the movie.

  • My favorite character of any movie, of all time. I am going to have a really hard time liking this. They tried to sort of get someone to look like Ford, but his voice is really what is throwing me off. I smell doom, from crusty old farts like myself, who will pick everything about this movie apart. When I was a kid everyone wanted to be Han, and I am sorry to say this far, this kid ain’t no Han.

  • It's just not going to be the same, it's impossible. And I'd honestly rather they don't try too hard or it'll just end up looking and sounding like an impression of Harrison Ford. They need to just let Alden Ehrenreich be his version of Han Solo, some will be able to accept it and some won't. There's just no way around it.

    The flavor is rare.

  • I have had pretty low expectations when it comes to this Solo movie, but I actually liked that trailer. It gave me hope that it'll be at the very least 1) nice to look at, I dig the aesthetics and cinematography so far, and 2) it'll have some fun lore and characters between Harrelson's character's mentor relationship ("hey, kid"), Glover's Lando, the cool looking masked character and of course some Han and Chewy shenanigans. Looks like a decent amount of other species, and it doesn't seem like they're going to do something outrageous with the plot.

    I'm warming up to the idea of this movie. As others have said, I'm not sure Ehrenreich was the right choice -- a lot of people are going to have a hard time with him playing Han. I don't think he looks anything like Ford, and I don't see anything in his voice, delivery or mannerisms to suggest he'll be all that similar.

    What people will have to do is realize and accept this is Ehrenreich's interpretation of the character Han Solo, not his interpretation of Harrison Ford's interpretation of Han Solo. It'll be interesting to see how he performs.

  • I don't see why people can't just let their favorite characters go. Han Solo is awesome....but do we really need to go back in time again just to keep the character alive?

    America has this problem with getting too attached to characters and slowly sucking all the life out of them instead of moving onto something new.

    Precisely why I have no interest in seeing Marvel/DC movies with characters I've already seen in half a dozen movies or more. I know those characters, I know what Batman/Superman/Spider-Man/Iron Man will do or say, there's not much intrigue left. Tack on the fact that we're on to like our 3rd or 4th actors playing Spider-Man, Superman and even more for Batman, it's just complete fatigue.

    What I WILL go see are the movies with characters that haven't been on the big screen or have had limited exposure like Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool, Dr. Strange, Black Panther and the like.

  • The retro characters is that one such as Solo was defined by Harrison Ford as far as personality and delivery, now not only does the actor have to bring his acting and vision but also personality mimic since the character is so defined, he has to have the brash arrogance and be able to make us believe it's real.

    I'm actually going to correct myself. Batman v. Superman had something fresh because Snyder completely butchered Batman's character by having him (IIRC) run people over, shoot people and kill people. Which is just basically crapping on Batman's character/canon/lore.

    So there's that.

    Well I think we all knew when Lucas finally gave in and sold off the Star Wars franchise to Disney for a bazillion dollars, that they were going to whore the Star Wars universe out in as many different directions as they could to maximize profits.

    Cause that's what companies do.

    I have mixed feelings. On one hand I'm glad Lucas is no longer in control. After the prequels he proved that he lost his fastball and ability to write and direct around 1984.

    On the other hand, I as I said in the other thread, I wish someone other than Abrams and Disney were driving this run amok Star Destroyer...............because while the new movies are good, they are too safe and sterile for my taste.

    But like Si said, it's VERY obvious that these new movies aren't being made for us (other than some patronizing winks and nods), they're being made for a new generation of Star Wars fans.

  • Solo makes me nervous. This is the first time they are really attempting to re-do characters we know with new people. We got CGI recreations when they did that in Rogue One, to mixed reviews. Now you have new actors with different faces and different voices.

    Like others have said on here, I think it's going to be really hard for people to accept other actors doing impressions of characters we know and love. It is much different to act out a character and make it your own than trying to act out a character the way another actor already acted out that character.

  • The latest (and probably last) new trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story blazed across TV sets Sunday night, a day after teasing the Han Solo origin story with a brief clip of the Millennium Falcon swooping through the tentacled chaos of a space monster.

    The fresh footage has plenty of Chewbacca, who is seen hanging precariously from the ship by his fur, and, as Han jokes, "looks great" for 190 years old!

    Not a whole lot is known about the standalone movie, which casts Alden Ehrenreich in the smuggler role made famous by Harrison Ford and co-stars Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson. But the faithful felt a disturbance in the Force when director Ron Howard was brought in last June to steer the film to completion after Chris Miller and Phil Lord were ousted for creative differences.

    Disney and Lucasfilm surprised fans last week by announcing that the movie would get a prestigious premiere out of competition at Cannes Film Festival (May 8-19) in France, the fest’s first Star Wars unveiling since 2005’s Revenge of the Sith prequel. We can’t wait to see what Glover (aka Lando Calrissian), who wore a slim white tux with velvet loafers to the Grammys, suits up in for the Cannes carpet.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters May 25.

  • The more I see about this movie the more I'm liking it. Obviously trailers can be deceiving, but so far so good IMO. I'm even liking Ehrenreich's Han so far. He's never gonna look and sound like him, but I think I'm going to be able to look past that. He seems to have been able to capture the personality to a certain degree, and if that is the case it'll be good enough for me.

    definitely warming up to the movie after the latest rounds of tv spots and the last trailer. Looks a bit of fun.

  • Quick thoughts on the movie:

    Solo was pretty good. I don't expect this is one I'll go back and see a ton of times. But I'm glad they made it. It was cool and fun. Not hilarious but funny enough in spots.

    There wasn't much in the movie I didn't like. Not much that really blew me (away) either but just an overall fun, exciting, entertaining movie, that IMO was lacking only in that it wasn't as epic as Star Wars movies normally are.

    Some stiff dialogue by just about everybody at one point or another, some jokes that landed, others that didn't, but pretty good chemistry overall, and a decent enough script.

    Pretty interesting story, checked most of the boxes on what people wanted to see, I think.

    A couple nice twists toward the end, some more obvious and easier to see coming than others.

    Emilia didn't ruin it. She was surprisingly better than I expected, for the most part.

    I thought Alden was great. He played a great Han Solo. This movie would probably be 10-15% higher on Rotten Tomatoes if it was somehow able to star an actual young Harrison Ford, even with no other changes to any of it, but the kid held his own IMO. There's just not much you can do when trying to fill shoes like that.

    Speaking of filling shoes, Donald Glover was as advertised. Pretty much nailed it.

    I thought Paul Bettany was good as the villain, even if there wasn't much to him. He was essentially the bad guy because he's rich and powerful and will kill you if you don't do what he wants you to do. Not a whole lot of depth there but he played the part well.

    The Enfyst Nest character & story was 1 part badass, 1 part pretty cool, and 1 part "wait, what?"

    Interesting choice and execution there, definitely going to have to watch again just to make sure that whole plot line made sense.

    A few small cameos, one pretty huge cameo (as had been reported), not the cameo I expected by any means, but not wholly unbelievable or unpredictable if you've been paying close attention. Still processing how I feel about it. I can't tell if it took balls and is really exciting or if it was kind of an easy way out.

    Looking forward to hearing what everybody else thinks.

    So the big cameo/surprise at the end, at first I was like OMG is that? Is it? Kinda looks like... Or is it just another dude from the same species, with the same weapon? (don't want to be too specific, spoilers)

    I was so confused, I thought ok, this is cool, but his face didn't look anything like.... they could have done a way better job. Same actor? Some CGI? Was just confusing.

    But overall I liked it. The sold out crowd at Cinerama was really into it, applause, yelling, was fun.


    Edit: Just looked it up, guess it was the same actor from the prequels... so I dont know :Dunno: He looked so different to me.

    Yeah, I mean, it's been 20 years so I guess maybe he doesn't look the same as he used to? I thought the same thing though, assumed it was a different guy until I saw the credits. I just hope with his new... um... body parts... he's a little bit... taller than he used to be? I like my Star Wars villains big and menacing I guess haha.

  • This is the review from Tom Tagney from KIRO in Seattle...I've followed him loosely through the years and he seems to have a decent grasp on movies he critiques in general...I was surprised how negative he was about this movie. I am curious if any of you who have seen the movie would agree or at least understand his viewpoint...(For the record I have not seen the movie yet)...

    Han Solo is the least-interesting character in this ‘Star Wars story’

    Boring! That was my surprising reaction to the latest Star Wars offshoot, “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

    How this franchise could take everybody’s favorite Star Wars character, Han Solo, and give him a boring origin story is beyond me but there it is. And it’s not just his story that’s dull. His signature smart-aleck wit is also inexplicably missing.

    The film may be titled “Solo,” but it feels like an ensemble movie, and oddly, most of the principal characters are more compelling than our eponymous hero.

    Thanks to a raft of rumors, first about a troubled shoot (Ron Howard stepped in at the last minute to replace the two directors who had already shot most of the film), and then about emergency acting classes for its young star, many fingers of blame were pointing at Alden Ehrenreich. I suppose it can’t have been easy to try to replace Harrison Ford but I don’t fault Ehrenreich as much as I do the screenwriters. The script simply doesn’t let the new Han Solo shine. He’s got that old Solo cockiness and daredevil impulse, but he’s missing his charisma and charm. And in a movie-plex world of Deadpools, Guardians of the Galaxy, and even the Avengers now, this film’s dearth of comic lines is notable.

  • Problem with trying to replace a Icon is your not the Icon, Ford delivered a character and invented it's suave personality and sold it. Very hard for someone else to own that and sell it.

    Look at James Bond, after Sean Connery they have been forever tried to replace the charisma, cockiness and toughness he brought to Bond, Roger Moore was never a good sell he was suave but never sold the tough, same with Pearse Bronson, George George Lazenby, showed toughness but never the suave and Timothy Dalton was just bad, Daniel Craig has pretty much nailed it again. But wants out now.


    Very hard to step into shoes of a established Character, especially one's that have many movies and shown a large portion of the stories.



    The same will be said for whomever has the misfortune of being the next Indiana Jones. Someone will think it is a great idea to remake it.


    The you have the whole Marvel universe, who replaces Robert Downey, Jr ? That is going to be tough as well.

  • I'm not a professional movie critic, so maybe my opinion carries less weight than Tagney's, but his tone is that of somebody who let all of the troubling news that came out about this movie before its release alter the lens with which he viewed the movie itself. I know that you can't unlearn the stuff about the director-swap and the on-set coaching that Ehrenreich was said to have gotten (totally not unusual, btw, and way blown out of proportion. calling them "acting classes" is quite the embellishment and pretty disingenuous), but if you don't think of those things while you watch the movie (why would you want to think about that stuff while you watch a movie anyway?) those factors are really not very present. Harrison Ford's shoes are virtually impossible to fill, but after seeing Ehrenreich's performance, I can't think of a single person that would have been as good in the role outside a young Ford himself.

    Thanks to the internet, there's a lot of noise surrounding these big movies these days. Everybody's a critic now, and Star Wars has a particularly volatile and opinionated, divided fan base. I just hope that people are going in to this movie (or these movies) with open minds and reasonable expectations (who'm I kidding, they're not). Solo doesn't have anywhere near the level of effrontery and isn't anywhere close to as nettlesome (to the "not my Luke Skywalker" fans) as The Last Jedi.

    But maybe the negativity will be a good thing in the long run. Though I've been able to learn to love and thoroughly enjoy all these new movies so far, I'll be the first to admit that they are flawed and mostly fall short of what they could be, what most of us hoped they would be. And maybe the vehemently ostentatious reaction by what I still believe is a vocal minority, and the apparent new-found apathy of those already only moderately interested, will cause Lucasfilm to take a step back and re-examine what's important about this franchise and how to better execute the vision of where these stories are supposed to go.

    But, all that said, Solo is actually really good. I think it does a very effective and entertaining job of accomplishing what it set out to accomplish; giving us an insight to the backstory of some of our favorite characters from the Star Wars universe in a fun way that, for the most part, feels like the Star Wars we know and love.

  • The trouble with professional critics is they look at the more Artsy side of a film, they look for plot holes, they look for how cohesive things are, costumes, and then the individual acting. Movie goers look at how entertaining it was and if it followed a story line they have grown to know and expect, we all see lousy acting sure, but we also look at special effects based on what we have experienced to date. If we enjoy the movie and the characters sell their rolls well and the story line has a facsimile of possibility and believability based on the type of movie it is we will like and enjoy it where a professional critic will not. we have a thread about movies that critics loved that many of us hated. That thread is a good example of critics versus fans opinions.

  • I'm in between Tangney and Zeb.

    I think they chose the wrong guy to play Han Solo. Plus, I'm not sure what I think about them making Lando out to be...well, the sabacc thing. Don't want to post a spoiler. Someone go make a spoiler thread in the shack, lol.

    However, in some ways I'm having trouble trying to come up with a way to describe, this film does feel more like Star Wars than Episodes VII and VIII. There's a lot more to that galaxy than force users and lightsabers.

  • I enjoyed it. It was better than Episodes I or II, but not as good as any of the others. Donald Glover was fantastic, and I felt like Alden Ehrenreich was serviceable. Was he Harrison Ford? No, but he wasn't Hayden Christensen, either. I enjoyed the little references to the old Expanded Universe that peppered the film (The Maw, Teras Kasi, Lando namechecks Oseon), gave the hardcore fans a little shoutout. If you don't love all things Star Wars, then this film isn't necessary, but there are far less entertaining ways to spend an afternoon. I'd rate it 6.5 out of 10.
