I am still baffled by the idea of a trailer for a trailer. The strange thing is the trailers for the trailers are getting longer and longer. This one is nearly a minute long. So what Disney are actually doing is releasing two trailers in two days as far as I’m concerned.
Maybe, maybe... but we're three months out from a new Star Wars film and have seen jack gooseberry fool of it. That seems pretty unusual. Didn't we have a Rogue One teaser 6-8+ months out from that film's theatrical release?
Some folks are already wondering what it'll bring to the wider Star Wars verse, in particular Han's own future. It could cast the subsequent films in a whole new light.
Do Disney still employ that “keeper of the holocron” guy? He needs to start doing his job... The Falcon looks like a YT-1300 - There aren’t any extra panels. I thought the weird ship on the poster was going to be another kind of freighter but I guess not...
Didn’t realise some of the lego sets had leaked, too. “The Kessel Run Millenium Falcon”. Kinda sad it’s a redesign to pull in some more merchandising bucks but one of the other sets they’re doing is another basic TIE Fighter...
I think they'd sell more stuff if the designs weren't so uninspired, really. The EU had some fantastic ships, and so far the only thing we've really had that looked anywhere decent was Kylo's TIE Silencer and the TIE Striker's from Rogue One.
That new TIE Fighter just looks like a slightly deformed TIE Bomber's body stuck in between a normal TIE Fighters wings. It might be an iconic shape but move on.
Hmm, really not feeling it from that trailer, just seems to be lacking a lot.
Still, at least someone has finally realised it's a good idea to give Han some different clothes - I was getting worried they'd expect us to believe the guy only wore one outfit his entire strawberry floating life!
The biggest problem I have is that the character of Han Solo is intrinsically linked to Harrison Ford. Solo is Ford and Ford is Solo, you can't separate the two. Having some other guy running around pretending to be Han just doesn't work in my brain on a very fundamental level - he doesn't look like Ford, he doesn't sound like Ford, he doesn't have the same mannerisms and facial expressions as Ford, he isn't as cool as Ford.
fast edit: At least with the young Indiana Jones, River Phoenix was playing Ford as a really young man, a teenager, so you wouldn't expect him to look completely the same as fully grown Indy. But in this Solo film, the guy playing Han is clearly a grown man, he's not teenage-Han.
