Hi! I just discovered this forum a few days ago and haven't posted anything yet. You've had some interesting discussion and I figured I would have to join at some point haha. I'm about to watch Solo for the first time, which I've been saving for some time. I've heard some good stuff and some bad, I'm curious to hear your thoughts about it after I've watched the film!
It's a fun movie, and it doesn't try to be anything more than that. Not perfect by any means but considering the circumstances under which it was produced, Ron Howard did an amazing job.

Forgot to say that those shorts on Star Wars Kids were fucking amazing. Holy shit is LucasFilm dropping the ball if they're not planning on making a full show with that quality ASAP.

You guys do know the reasom why those shorts look so great is becuase they're shorts that use audio from the films right. If you were to get a 2D star Wars cartoon in this day and age it would look less like this shorts and more like the marvel animated series that air on Disney XD.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I liked Solo. Most of it was good, especially Alden Ehrenreich who to me was Han Solo right away. It was really entertaining and never had me bored, the pace was really good I think.
The twist at the end was pretty good was well done, atleast the first time you watch it. My only real problem with the movie minus some nitpicky things I can ignore was the Kira(?) Keera(?) storyline.

She had way less impact on Han than I assumed she would. They were in love and got seperated tragically, then they find each other and she is obviously passed him (or lost hope of it working). I was hoping they would explore this human trafficking plot which was really intriguing but I guess not. They just left it at ''I've done horrible things and this wont work'', they never explained what and nothing about this changes. She says this wont work and then she leaves him.

I really wish they would have developed this further because the first part of this storyline was great. When they introduced her mark/tattoo and the idea of her being a slave I really thought this was going somewhere, but the conclusion was disappointing to me.

It's cool that they wanted to use Maul though!

Overall fun movie but could have been better! On the other hand it could have been so much worse, especially with all the drama, I'm happy for everyone involved that it turned out so well.

Let me know or delete my comment if the spoiler thing doesn't work, I have no idea what I'm doing haha.

I just read some Episode 9 rumors...I like some but don't like others.
Follow the same rule as TLJ: do not believe any alleged rumor or spoiler unless it comes from MakingStarWars. Not one of these clickbait sites has ever once gotten a rumor correct.

It came from the Star Wars Production thread and even talked about other Star Wars things like The Mandalorian, Fallen Order, Galaxy's Edge and such!=O But yeah it's better to use them still.
 

What that fuck is that? Is that a fucking cat? Hey, don't fucking look at me like that. That's a weird looking cat. MAAAAAA! Yo, there's a stray cat outside!
It's a Voorpak. They're a native species of Naboo that made a few appearances in Legends, but this marks their first Canon outing. Interestingly, they might not be the only species to have made their Canon appearance in the most recent episode of Resistance...



... could this merchant be our first glimpse at a Bothan?

Mark’s performances have not been particularly great in past Star Wars films, I mean, he gets the job done but nothing really stands out but in TLJ I’d say he is legitimately great.

There’s some really outstanding line reading from him in that film.

One of the few things I can actually imagine it being (that would fit in line with past marketing) is some sort of Force For Change tie-in like they did with TFA during its production.


That or a simple production tease like TLJ's:
