Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

They are actually following the original tradition.
Prior to the December releases of the latest trilogy, they were all released in the second half of May.

It will be interesting to see the first one directed by "Richie".

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

what would be nice and gain some fan appreciation is if they stick to that naming format now going forward for all standalone spin-offs; NAME: A Star Wars Story.

They are making another one about Boba Fett or Jango (can't remember which one) so now that should be called something like The Bounty Hunter Tales: A Star Wars Story.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

It'd have to be about Boba; you might recall the brief...discussion...Jango had with Mace Windu. Jango quite lost his head during their spirited discourse.

An important lesson: don't mess with a Korun Master Jedi with an ultra-cool violet lightsabre (unless you're a low-down deceiver like Darth Vader, that is!).

As for Solo: I'm looking forward to it. I'd like to see:
How Han won the Falcon from Lando;
How he and Chewie got to be such good friends (maybe Han rescued Chewie from an Imperial work gang? A number of novels have portrayed enslaved Wookies helping to build the Death Star);
How Han set the Kessel Run speed record;
And, of course, his "outrunning Imperial starships...not the local bulk cruisers, mind you, I'm talkin' about the big Corellian ships now".

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

So guessing that synopsis was just badly written as we all know he won the Falcon off Lando at somepoint in their past.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

yeah, we'll see what happens. It will be interesting to see how they are going to play it. I know they were behind schedule in production but I would have thought they would want to get a trailer or at least a teaser out now to start drumming up some excitement. They might be leaving it till after Black Panther but going by that logic they'll still be encroaching on Infinity War.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

It will be interesting to see if Ron Howard has managed to save the film. The whole production seemed to be in crisis before the director was changed it seemed.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

yup, I know a lot of people till think it is going to be pants but I am going to give it a chance because I think Ron Howard is ace. The funny thing is that I think I read somewhere last week that John Williams is doing the score as well. If so, that tells you something was definitely wrong and Lucasfilm/Disney are doing everything they can to fix it and pull the core fans back.
