    Really? I thought you out of everyone would've loved it based on your widespread use of negativity on this forum.

    Something I don't think anyone wanted was Ace Ventura Space Smuggler.

    This is also ill informed.

    Star Wars should continually be an experiment, not a mathematical equation.

    Well, perhaps Lord and Miller should create and finance their own Star Wars-like movie. Lucas tried to make a Flash Gordon film and when he couldn't, Star Wars was born. Financed by Lucas so he could make the movie he wanted. I recommend they do the same.

    Just remember that the best Han Solo line ever was improvised.

    John Powell selected to score. That is why Kathleen is the boss. Great choice.

    I think it makes sense that we would see Vader in a background cameo type role. I doubt he would have a part like rogue one as it wouldnt fit.

    The title is official,
    SOLO a star wars story

    No shock with this. When my family and I were talking about it, that was what I guessed.

    I agree that filmmakers should take a certain amount of creative liberties with Star Wars movies but the integrity of our favorite characters need to be upheld. According to set reports the performance that lord & miller got out of alden was comparable to ace ventura pet detective. As much as I like ace ventura I think we can all agree that is not the desired result we want. I don't mind lord & miller's encouragement of improvisation on set. But I would side with the kasdan father-son writing duo over lord & miller. This isn't lawrence kasdan's first rodeo with writing a Star Wars movie. I also believe he is one of the 3 people that know the han solo character best (lucas and ford being the other obvious two).

    I'll admit that when Lord & Miller were announced as directors, I cringed. Yes, I enjoyed The Lego Movie and Cloudy, but goofiness and foolishness does not a good Star Wars flick make. I despised Ace Ventura. So glad to see they chose someone who appreciates not only Lucasfilm, but the franchise and the fans as well. I think Howard was a good choice.
