I just have so little interest in this movie even existing. It represents the exact sort of shit I hoped they WOULDN'T do when they said they were going to start doing side stories and such.

Going to take a hard pass on seeing this in the theater. Same with young Boba Fett. If others do, too, maybe it will prompt them to reconsider the types of side stories they want to tell.

Showing us other parts of the Star Wars world is AWESOME.

Playing fill-in-the-blanks on characters who are already established and beloved, not so much.

Save this sort of thing for books and such.

Well, for every ticket grumpy guts doesn't buy, I'll buy two!

Seriously, it looks like fun. I agree that it didn't have to be about Han and Lando and Chewie, but then casual fans wouldn't give a shit, and $100 million movie goes and bombs. Disney could easily grow a pair and have new stories with new characters (like Rebels), and SO many kids would watch it. But, like their awful Marvel films - they just keep pumping out safe content for an audience that loves to consume mediocre.

They should just pull a Netflix - advertise a franchise movie during the Superbowl, and then have it available immediately. The money has already been spent, and critical reviews are unnecessary when a computer algorithm tailored to your viewing habits drops it into your queue.

I know, I want to know more about Nien Numb and Lobot.

I've wanted to see a Han Solo movie since I first heard the line, "Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen *anything* to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything..." That is a Star Wars universe with no Jedi or force users at all, and a bunch of awesome space pirates kicking ass.

I'm in.

Just remember, prior to Disney buying Lucasfilm (And subsequently canceling everything SW-related already in production), Adult Swim was going to air an adult-themed animated SW cartoon show (from the makers of Robot Chicken). That is the other timeline we would have had.

I'm not a fan of Disney making films by committee, but if we get a Rogue One for every Force Awakens, I'm really ok with that. And Solo is leaning more towards Rogue One than Force Awakens.

In all seriousness, while I don't really want to see a Solo film, fuck, a Donald Glover Lando movie sounds fun. Bonus if they can get the guy who played Ahbed from Community a part.

Were you hit in the head while in Mexico? That's a terrible idea, and you should feel terrible for even allowing the internet to see that sentence.

Probably.

Ahbed could be Lobot.

I'm just hoping the Guardians of the Galaxy make an appearance in this movie. Otherwise, it's a guaranteed stinker.

Like all Ron Howard films this will be competently made and achingly forgettable.

So The Force Awakens, but Han Solo is young instead of old, and he lives instead of dies.

My coworker and Shoe would get along great.

My coworker is violently hostile towards the new Solo movie. I think he got himself suspended on Reddit and Twitter for calling people names over the whole idea of a Solo movie.

Your coworker sounds a little unhinged. I, on the other hand, have only called one poor single mother a worthless whore over this movie.

He definitely fits the unhinged category.

There's a new trailer for this out. Everyone, including Chewbacca, looks bored.

Well, it can't possibly be as bad as Force Awakens. It looks and feels like an episode of Rebels, so I'm in.

Also, Last Jedi in 4K is amazing...

Force Awakens isn't bad. It's the best Chewbacca Star Wars.

This one is finally a pretty decent trailer.

But I'm still not going to give this movie my money.

That's okay - I'll tell people I'm you when I'm buying my tickets. Might have to cut my legs off to play the part right, though.

I am Eric San Juan, of the New Jersey San Juans, and I do hereby purchase this solo ticket!

You want a ticket to see Solo?

Oh, no, no, just going alone to Avengers: Infinity War, and I am not afraid to admit it! I would never give that pish posh of a Star Wars spin off my money. Now see to it, Young Chap!

The Mrs. took the day off from work so we could see Infinity War on opening day afternoon.

This is serious business.

Star Wars, on the other hand, is for people like Chris Knight.

Gentlemen! Gentlemen! Please. Can't we admit both Solo and Avengers: Infinity War will be objectively terrible?
