SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY "Big Game" TV SPOT


SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY OFFICIAL TEASER


I couldn't come up with a better title and I know it's a bit early, but remembering the formula Disney's using, I was able to find out the official name of Star War's anthology. Also, It's supposed to be released FIVE MONTHS FROM NOW. That right now is the reason I made a thread for discussion of this film. It is centered on Han Solo and his adventures in his younger days, along with Chewie. Thanks to General_Rhys_Dallows, we now have a trailer to present for the thread and is placed in the OP for presentation.

What do you guys think the film will turn out to be?

Crazed is right, though... this is prototyping for Kenobi, Leia, Fett... the problem is it's also showing fans that they don't know how to do those films justice. Again, everything we know about their background is going to be crammed into a five-day period of their lives.

IT'S AN AT-ST! I KNOW WHAT THAT IS!

But it's slightly different so they broke new ground trying new stuff! STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARS!

Funnily enough, what I said almost six years ago is still pretty much how I feel...

Likewise. And for further irony, TLJ taunted me with what I wanted--criticism of the Jedi apotheosis--and then gave me exactly what I said I didn't want: pointlessly EMO grit-for-grit's-sake dark.

Isn't that basically what they cater to now?

That's actually pretty interesting. Actually pretty cool how it references the opening shot of the original movie, but then goes a different direction with it.

If only the rest of the film did.

Haven't seen it yet, so is it any good?

Solo? Yeah, it's pretty good. It stays pretty safe and is mostly predictable, but it's a pretty fun ride.

Just out of interest, how much does it tie into the overall 'bigger picture' of the SW universe at the time that is set? The impression I got is that it is quite... small scale, immediately concerning the characters but not really being part of the bigger picture of the geopolitical situation of the galaxy at the time (e.g. the rise of the Empire, the foundings of the rebellion)...

Yeah, it doesn't have much to say about the empire outside of Han brief time in the military, and the rebellion is only mentioned. It's mostly just the organized crime.

There is a sort of sequel hook at the end that might lead to something bigger, though.

See, that's one of the reasons I was disinterested in this story in the first place. I find the wider conflict more interesting than just Oceans Eleven in space.

Still, people are saying it's good so maybe I'll give it a chance.

Go see it. It's the first Star Wars movie released by Lucasfilm since 1983.

EDIT: In hindsight, this is unfair. The Force Awakens is also a Star Wars film. In fact, it's the original film. So, it's the first original Star Wars film since 1983.
