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?

That only happened once, and Kreia didn't actually succeed.

She was too busy holding up a trio of bullshit lightsabers >_>

My damn Exile should NOT have had that much trouble with those things! He (long before I knew the KotOR2 canon) destroyed everything on that dead world, including everyone inside the Academy. WHY WERE FLOATING LIGHTSABERS SUCH A PROBLEM!?

I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to get into a rant there...I just really hated that fight.

It's clear that's what he felt the old Star Wars canon SHOULD have done with it.

And the new one... hard to say.

Well, there's a worse fight in the cut content: Atton vs. Sleeps-With-Vibroblades. (But yeah, that fight was awful.)

Oh good lord, none of the fights that didn't involve the exile were easy. Since my first playthough was unmodded (so many crashes), I just wanted to get through the game before running into another game breaking bug. So...I didn't realize I could train my companions to become Jedi. Now imagine me trying to do the Mira vs. Hanharr fight.

So the Lego sets for this film have now been detailed. You can see them here. WARNING: minor spoilers.

Nothing to confound expectations so far. Does anyone think it's weird how little promotion there has been for this film so far? We haven't even had the official poster yet and the release is ~5 months away. Are the rumors about Disney writing this movie off true?

EDIT: original link 404'd, new one here: http://comicbook.com/starwars/2018/01/09/solo-a-star-wars-story-plot-details-lego-set/

1. I think it is very unusual from Disney's part. 2. I hope it is not written off by Disney.

Let me answer your question with another question: why would anyone buy a toy Millenium Falcon when they already own one, unless the new one looks slightly different?
2. I hope it is not written off by Disney.
Me too! I've heard rumours of further reshoots (on Reddit, so I'm not sure how far they can be trusted), if it's true I'll be surprised if the film is actually released in May and not delayed.

The real issue is that Star Wars has actually made its money back. Not sure if that also includes all marketing and production costs of new materials, or just a naive "they spent four billion; box office grosses are four billion!" logic. But once there's a confirmed break-even, Disney is going to look long and hard at LFL.

The sets pretty much confirm exactly what everybody expected was gonna happen; Han's entire backstory condensed into ~2 hours, and every significant event of his pre-ANH life took place over the course of maybe a week.

I thought they'd already more than exceeded that?

How so? All of the SW movies under Disney have been well received critically & commercially (except in China, lol). I suppose Disney probably want every film to make at least as much as TFA, but I can't see them doing anything drastic just yet.

Yeah, but if there's a downward trend... Disney has already been badly burned on sci-fi before. They'll probably push out Episode IX for 2019, but after that, there may be a hiatus.

That's true, I mean... remember John Carter? No, me neither. I think a hiatus is unlikely... Kevin Feige's contract at Marvel is due to expire this year, and apparently the only thing he loves more than superheroes is Star Wars. Maybe he'll be tasked with turning SW around.

You know, I usually trust the critics over the viewing public, but apparently they're off their rockers.

Yes but Disney has tried to create competing franchises in the past, in an attempt to cash in on the non-core Disney genres and frankly those movies are uninteresting. John Carter is one example, but heck look at their other bombs like the Lone Ranger and Tomorrowland, and yes Treasure Planet. Not often a Disney animation bombs but there you go.

Now with Star Wars and Marvel, or even Pixar, they already have their built in core audiences and Disney gets to use their media might to develop the movies and pull in new audiences, and to use their vast financial resources to develop and enrich the material.

I'm a actually big believer that the Star Wars Anthologies series is an attempt to push the franchise past the conclusion of Episode IX, and to provide possible spin-off film series opportunities if one specific film does spectacularly well. Kind of like tryouts.

Finally, back on point. There is absolutely NO WAY this movie is coming out for may. We haven't even seen a proper trailer for it.

For that matter, I haven't seen ANY TYPE of advertising gear up for this movie. No trailers on the internet, no trailers before showing before other movies, no media campaigns to drill reminders of the movie's release date.

I mean, you'd think the perfect place to advertise Solo was in the trailers before The Last Jedi, but nothing there either. That for me was the most convincing argument against a spring release.

The only place I've even seen advertisement for it has been in a movie theatre itself in the "Coming Attractions" signage with all of the other movies.

Oh My Disney still mentioned it as coming in May. *shrug* Honestly, the only things Disney has in its lineup right now I find interesting are the live action Mulan (the first animated-to-live Disney film* I'll have been willing to give a shot since Cinderella), Incredibles 2, and the unnamed Pixar (because if it's Pixar and not Cars, I'll see it) film, all in 2019 except Incredibles. I'll probably see Christopher Robin (which must make Christopher Milne cringe--I mean, as I understand it, he actually hated his father for writing those stories about him ), The Nutcracker (pink hair is really not Keira Knightley's color), and Wreck It Ralph 2--but I'm not really holding high expectations for any of them. The live action Aladdin and The Lion King can go jump off a cliff.

*I can't believe Beauty & The Beast is up for a BaFTA for costume design. The only award that film's costumes deserve is a Razzie.

Saw the full trailer... but just as part of the RLM reaction video. I'm less impressed now.

Also, Emilia Clarke is movie poison.

It actually looks pretty cool... but then anyone should be able to make a cool looking trailer out of a Star Wars film.

Nothing as cringeworthy as "I rebel" either. I quite like Ron Howard, so I'm still hopeful that this turns out OK.

I enjoy Howard as well. But he certainly had an uphill battle with this one, and I suppose we'll have to wait and see if the film suffers for that.

Though personally I wish they could have found a different Han...Keep Lando though, holy shit.
