Trailer Time: Solo - A Star Wars Story

I have a bad feeling about this.

Visually, the movie looks very interesting, but that isn't really the big selling point.  This isn't Rogue One where we will be introduced to new characters with blank slates.  We are about to re-encounter one of the most iconic characters in movie history.

I would be so much more excited for this film if it wasn't for Alden Ehrenreich as Han.  I am not one of those people that says you cannot replace iconic actors.  One of the best things about the prequels was Ewan McGregor's performance as Obi-Wan.  He both paid tribute to Alec Guinness and added something of his own.  I am not saying Ehrenreich can't do that, but in the scant few seconds we see him, I didn't feel anything regarding excitement.  Contrast that to seeing Lando on screen.  Glover has a great charisma and even for only a second, I imagined how great he would be in the role.

I hope I am wrong, but I am not optimistic about this film.



  1. There are Harrison Ford impersonators on Youtube who could have fit the bill.

  2. I'm a bit worried about the Woody Harrelson character. I like Samuel L. Jackson as an actor but he was never Mace Windu in the prequels, he was always Samuel L. Jackson. Will Harrelson's character be the same?
