    Default Solo: A Star Wars Story

    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    Can't take that logo seriously, reminds me too much of this:

    Time to ruin the mystery behind a classic character with unnecessary backstory?

    I mean the trailers fine, but I don't really need to see the lesser adventures of young Solo, couldn't they just have a new character with a Solo cameo?

    Thought that as long it isn't Rian Johnson directing no explanation is required.

    I think I know where you are coming from. Han's younger & lesser adventures may somehow detract from his persona &/or ruin the mystery. I disagree. I'm looking forward to looking backward in time to see the events that helped shape the man he is today, not just from trilogy series. 'Lesser' adventures does not necessarily equate to unworthy or unnecessary backstory IMO.


    Although different, it reminds me when distinguished music artist 'come out of retirement' to pursue their love of their career. Some fans will always reject the revival. Please don't go ruining the legacy you left us with, blah, blah, blah. We want to remember you as you were then, blah, blah, blah.

    I have enjoyed some of the previews recently and I am looking forward to watching it but I don't have the hype levels of the other 3 new movies.

    Some of the character and trooper designs look great so I will probably be getting a few figures. The Lando Black Series figure probably should have had an extra head I think, to go along with the raised eyebrow one.

    This is not a particularly good movie.
