Haters gonna hate, but I think it looks awesome. I was worried before, but I am fully on board now.

Trailer-a-chow

Ironically, the post about Solo is not.

I could get on board with this if it were an original character. But I loathe prequels, regardless of the franchise or the story.

(Also, I never thought I'd say this but...I'm already getting Star Wars Movie burn-out.)

I get ya...
I was thinking it this morning too.

Also, it might have been better to make a Lando movie... people seem to be going bananas over Donald Glover, and some think there's more to explore there than there is with Han.

Clearly you guys aren't going to be fond of the 2021 release of Tales from Tosche Station about the life of Wuher, an orphan who worked his way out of poverty to become the premier mixologist specializing in alien cocktails.

This is the trailer from the other thread - it's actually a television spot, so there are some different scenes and alternate cuts of scenes from the longer trailer.

But I am stoked to see "Solo II: Lando Strikes Back! A Star Wars Story" and "Solo III: Lando Returns; A Star Wars Story"

Then you should enjoy the TV series where Lando and his two kids get trapped in the distant past, Lando of the Lost.

PS. Beware the Ssi-ruuk.

Just as an aside, I thought it would have been nifty if Lando had turned out to be the "codebreaker" in The Last Jedi. (Even if it was just a cameo of him in the casino as the "real" codebreaker, and they still wound up with the Benecio del Toro character going with them.)

As for the trailer, it looks like it might not suck -- and given that Harrison Ford has made it clear that he never much liked the character of Han Solo to begin with, the idea of him being played by another actor doesn't bother me so much. But I'm just not as enamored of the Star Wars universe that I think it needs more stories. I will see Part 9, because that story I'm sort of invested in (though not so much after Last Jedi), but the various spin-offs I'm pretty much indifferent to.

Looks like Lando's got himself a droid... too bad it's not Vuffi-Raa.

I haven't seen a movie twice in theaters in forever, but for Donald Glover I think I'd make an exception. *swoons*

Iím the biggest Star Wars fan going but like others Iím kind of bummed that they are going for such central characters for the spin offs, especially after the genius of Rogue One.

Iím struggling to get excited about Solo. a pure Lando movie would be much better.

and there is just no need for a Kenobi movie!

I will still go and see them all, several times and may well love them, but nothing will surpass the feels of the anticipation of The Force Awakens or Rogue One when those trailers got teased.

Yes, to Glover's Lando.

No, to the kinda half-assed Ford imitations by the actor playing Solo (whose name I'm too lazy to look up right now).

Also, we briefly see Chewie hug another Wookie. Wondering if that was Lumpy or Itchy.

Still all in. Looking forward to this more every time I see something new, and now have hopes that it is the best of the new canon.

Could be his wife Malla.

Happy Life Day!

This new trailer has upped my expectations somewhat.

Perhaps it might be good?
