Well, didn't they scrap a video game in favor of the movie? Maybe we could have something like it (a young Fett escaping an underground prison in Coruscant).

I'm also pretty certain we'll get Fett in this.

This is honestly what I expect it to be.

I heard Michael K Williams was just cast? I love him.

They may show something, but it could stay behind closed doors. Like they did with the Rogue One teaser they showed at Celebration 2015. Or they do give the BTS to everyone and show a teaser for the film behind closed doors.

New details about the film:

So uh...I guess Han Solo isnt his real name. Its a name he chose for himself or was given in the 5 years before ANH. I dont like that idea. Tho I have been toying with the idea that in Episode 8 we may find out that Han may have been from a well-off aristocratic Corelian family and he ran off forsaking his birth right. Maybe something like that will be revealed in the Han Solo film.

Oddly enough... I said this in one of my earliest podcasts as idle speculation.

I think people are taking the name thing literally. It won't be how Han Solo got his actual name, but more how his name becomes infamous and the man behind it.

I actually like the idea that Han Solo picks his own name. It is quite like Indiana Jones when you think about it.

I honestly feel like this movie is just turning into a checklist of things we know about his history:

Kessel Run
How he met Chewbacca
How he got the Millenium Falcon
How he met Jabba

It sounds kind of boring. Instead of exploring the years that lead into where we meet him in Episode IV, they should just do a new story about we haven't heard of. Leave the myth a myth.

Is anyone surprised? Lucasfilm and Disney's laziness with these new Star Wars films shows no signs of ending.

You can have the basics of some backstory and tell something very unique and different. Even though the PT were terrible, they did a lot of new things and good ideas while going down a checklist of things we already knew happened.

A completely different idea. This is like asking the question of who Anakin Skywalker was before he was Vader. That is a fine question for a film.

Yeah the spiritual side of it is completely different then that of a character. I will always and forever turn to the Han Solo trilogy by A.C. Crispin to point out how you can tell a rich backstory and still keep some of that mystery. However Han was never really mysterious he was always interesting and a wild card but not really on the mysterious level.

In the Return of the Jedi novelisation, as the heroes leave Tatooine, Luke is wondering if Han Solo is a name he choose for himself - that he was alone so he changed his name to match.

If it was so, then he changed long before he met Chewbacca.

If they do take the route, I don't think they should tell what his original name is or why he changed it. Maybe even just imply it is not his real name or that he hiding something or from someone.

Somethings should be a mystery.

Where did you here that this is what the film is about?

What has been "lazy" about the last two movies?

Focus on Rogue One - please tell what has you so discouraged and where the "laziness" is.

Rogue One killed any excitement I had for these stand alone films. I expect this to be incredibly boring until the last 30 minutes.

Rogue One had too many characters. If this movie focuses on less, the better. Hopefully they don't find a way to shove Darth Vader into it because Han and Lando are iconic enough.
