Looks good! And also, it has the mother of dragons!


#3

SQUEEEEE!
That is all.


#4

Guardians of the Star Wars?

For me, it was the impromptu fireworks display outside my window. Went on for some time - someone planned ahead for this. Spent a bit too.

It was a bit noisy in Philly last night - no sleep possible till late. I did not join the “festivities”. Though I have to say - lot’s of those folks were from the burbs.

Fly Solo fly!


#7

I can’t wait for the sequel, “Pas de Deux.”


#8

Am I the only one who was blown away by the revelation that the Falcon’s hallways were once CLEAN? Well, a couple years of bachelor living between then and episode IV sure took care of that.

Whoops! Wrong fandom! :wink:

Impossible to know from one trailer, but it looks to me like they are continuing the trend of the “star wars story” movies being much better that the trilogy films…


#11

I’ve already seen talk of boycotting the movie because the lead actor doesn’t look or sound like Harrison Ford. I mean c’mon…


#12

Yes, it’s yumminess can be felt.


#13

I’m surprised there aren’t boycotts because there is a speeder race that isn’t using swoops.


#14

But he’s still a swaggering misogynist, right? I mean, priorities.


#15

Well, those a-holes can just wait for the Deepfakes remix.


#16

Okay.
Okay, Lucas-Disney…
I´m in.
I´ll give this a chance.
I´m still displeased about Last Jedi, but this looks actually like fun.


#17

“Nooooo!”

I’ve certainly noticed that Solo appears to be continuing a trend in which the SWS films are allowed to deviate more radically from the established aesthetic of the Trilogy than the new Proper Episodes do, which I think is good. They still feel like Star Wars, but definitely have a distinct flavor to them that sets them apart.

He’s no worse a match than River Phoenix was in Last Crusade, IMO. I wasn’t anti-this film’s existence before, I was just ambivalent. Now that we have a trailer, I’m cautiously optimistic about it. It looks like an Ocean’s Eleven-style heist film, which should be a fun romp. I kind of hope they keep the grungy tone to the score.

I approve of the Bond-style music. Hans Solo is basically James Bond in space, anyway.
