Seeing rumors that the actor who played Vader in R1 was called to the set. So a Vader cameo could happen. This is causing some folks to lose their shit in a bad way saying it’s just fan service and to leave Vader alone. To these people I say, suck it. Damn right it’s fan service. I’m a fan who wants this service and if the Empire is a presence in the film and Vader is dispatched to handle something then hell yes I want that in the film. He’s the one link between all the movies so far and possibly the biggest icon in the franchise. So if he fits into the film/era’s timeline then by all means take advantage of it.
I’m kind of tempted to go the Giants Star Wars Day for this BB-8 figure:
The cameo in R1 was awesome. As long as he fits story-wise in the Han Solo movie, bring on another cameo.
That’s Han down on his knees.
I’m ok with the title. Simple. Understated.
The title is ironic, as he runs with a huge group of smugglers.
Reading a few different articles about this today.
Boy…sounds like Lord and Miller really fucked around with this. Jesus. From what I read, Ron Howard basically used the production design, a few action scenes, and that’s about it. He was basically asked to re-shoot the whole movie in half the time and due to Lord and Miller wasting so much time and having nothing to show for it it has cost Disney almost twice the expected budget. Sounds like Lord and Miller were treating it as their personal play ground and toy box and were not very professional in terms of shooting schedule and communicating with Kennedy and Kazdan.
The flip side is Disney is very happy with what Ron Howard was able to do in such a short time and will not allow the mistakes of Lord and Miller disrupt plans for future spin offs.
First Image of Alden as Solo from the 3rd act of the film. Him in his “hero” outfit.
This is from a promo cup at a movie theater in Arizona.
FWIW there was a sneak peek shown in Germany and the reaction has been positive.
This is probably the most in depth quote
“I just saw a Sneak Peak (EPK reel) of SOLO - A Star Wars Story and I must say I’m really really overwhelmed of how freaggin good it looks!. Alden Ehrenreich is amazing as Han Solo, and so is Donald Glover as Lando,…it had an ‘old’ Star Wars Feel to it!!”
Hello big grain of salt. Still not sure why there hasn’t been a trailer yet. Maybe they think it’s still too close to EP8? I know they just finished up re-shoots too so maybe that’s it?
At this point if the movie is pleasantly mediocre and doesn’t destroy my hero I’ll be happy. LOL.
I just want to see it.
Teaser trailer set to air during Super Bowl with a full trailer to air Monday morning during Good Morning America

High chance of #fartnoise.
If I get a solid meat and potatoes 50% RT score I’ll be more than happy.
I don’t think it will be nearly as good as Rogue One but I think it will be a solid effort. I’m only basing this on Ron Howard’s track record. He’s solid. Not spectacular, but solid.
Wait, so it won’t be good at all, then?
You shut your face.
I don;t know how to feel about this.
Fart noise about covers it for me. I had more fun watching Morgan Freeman lip sync Missy Elliott.
But don’t worry, Avengers trailer sucked too.
