Aaron Paul was GREAT as Jesse Pinkman
Jul 08th 2015

      Yeah Chris Pratt is a star and would do the comedic timing better
Jul 09th 2015

      completely disagree. Paul has that affable cynicism that's critical...
Jul 09th 2015

Eh, as long as it's not a "comprehensive" origin story, I'm cool
Jul 09th 2015

Isn't the word that Lord and Miller are going to be apart of this
Jul 09th 2015
11
Chris Pratt is the same age as Harrison Ford was in Star Wars
Jul 09th 2015
12
it only has to be before SW, if it's 5 years or less
Jul 09th 2015
16
Well doing it as a prequel that takes place 5 years before Star Wars is ...
Jul 09th 2015

Fine - but he's 4 inches shorter
Oct 22nd 2016
34
It'll work out... he's the same height as the new Hans
Oct 22nd 2016
35
regardless of height, he's just too androgynous and unsuave...
Oct 27th 2016
42
I have a bad feeling about this.
Oct 23rd 2016
36
he definitely has the perfect look for Lando

Some more to add to the Variety article above
Jun 20th 2017
58
      Well, at least it's starting to make sense.
Jun 20th 2017
59
      Yeah but these directors need to understand

           Exactly. And to your point, it really depends on what kind of

                Like I mentioned above, I think they are struggling with striking
Jun 21st 2017
64
                At what point though do you stop chasing the "Star Wars tone"
Jun 21st 2017
66
                     I don't think this one has to have a "Star Wars tone", but it can't
Jun 21st 2017
67
                          The contradict thing is hard to say
Jun 21st 2017
68
                          These are all side stories tho from the main film. That's hella leeway
Jun 21st 2017

Sounds like they couldn't get along with Kennedy and Kasdan.
Jun 20th 2017
57
      Bottom line..if Kathleen Kennedy didn't think it was right
Jun 21st 2017
      It depends tho. Are directors that disposable and untrustworthy?

I think those are things we see i doubt the movie is all about it tho
Jan 16th 2018

That's straight from the horse's mouth.

That's a pretty standard, generic plot summary

I don't understand any excitement for this at all
Jan 16th 2018

Doesn't mean they should do them right away

Should/could, same difference to me.

So the film's run time is reportedly 2 hours and 23 minutes
Jan 23rd 2018

I guess. Every one of these Disney SW could be shorter though.

which I can see more than Chris Pratt.

Paul was retweeting and saying how dope that'd be, and the official Star Wars twitter followed him right after.

He's good for shows on CW or MTV at best, however. He should be nowhere near iconic roles like Han Solo.

Meanwhile, Chris Pratt is pretty much perfect for younger Harrison Ford characters.

He's perfect for Solo AND Indiana Jones.

Unless it's a sequel and he survived somehow.

I'm adamantly against any and all prequels. For any franchise. They are, with very insanely few exceptions, an awful idea.

15. "Eh, as long as it's not a "comprehensive" origin story, I'm cool"
In response to Reply # 10


  

          

A Han Solo biopic would be a bad idea. I don't need to know why he became a smuggler and a "scoundrel". But if they picked one section of his back-story, I'd be cool. To kind of re-hash a discussion here in PTP from when Disney first announced they were doing these "origin" movies, if they do some "Ocean's 11 in space" shit for this film, I'd be cool. Maybe show him hooking up with Chewie or winning the Falcon from Lando (that could be the opening scene); anything beyond that is unnecessary.

17. "Well doing it as a prequel that takes place 5 years before Star Wars is ..."
In response to Reply # 16


          

Is it a flashback episode of a TV movie??

Could they do Shadows of The Empire with a different cast??

I think the prequel movies would be better suited to minor characters - or aliens or old people. Chewbacca is 200 years old, Yoda is 900, and they have make-up that can hide who's playing them.

I'd think Han Solo movie 10 years before Star Wars makes more sense.

The period after leaving Garris Strike's band of theives, to joining the Imperial academy to freeing Chewbacca would make a great movie.

The Episodes I-III prequels really screw this up for me, becuase Han Solo's rought 20 when the Jedis are wiped out, then doesn't remember much about them at the age of 35. (I think Han Solo is actually 24 in the book when they meet Luke, but it doesn't play that way in the film.)

I should stop worrying about it, these films will probably get my $14 adminssion.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/woody-harrelson-star-wars-spinoff-han-solo-1201966517/

Woody Harrelson Confirms Role in ‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff
JANUARY 22, 2017 | 11:50AM PT

It’s official: Woody Harrelson is joining “Star Wars.”

The actor confirmed Variety‘s story from earlier this month that reported he’ll be in the upcoming Han Solo spinoff during an interview at the Variety Studio presented by Orville Redenbacher at the Sundance Film Festival.

Asked by Variety if he would be playing Han Solo’s mentor in the spinoff, Harrelson responded, “Yeah, I am.”

On Jan. 3, Variety reported that Harrelson was the top choice to play the mentor to Alden Ehrenreich’s young Han Solo. At the time, however, talks were still in early stages. Harrelson is at Sundance to promote his new movie “Wilson,” which also stars Laura Dern.

Like fellow “Star Wars” spinoff “Rogue One,” which just crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, the currently untitled Han Solo spinoff will be set prior to “Star Wars: A New Hope.” Donald Glover and Emilia Clarke also star, and Phil Lord and Chris Miller are set to direct.

Harrelson already had close ties to one of the film’s producers, Allison Shearmur. The two worked together on “The Hunger Games” films, in which Harrelson also played a mentor to another young hero: Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen.

The “Star Wars” Han Solo spinoff is set to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.

Has he talked about being a feature director? Earnest Dickerson turned into a pretty good director and Wally Pfister made Transcendence which had some interesting moments. I selfishly want him to remain a DP so he can make even more movies to enjoy his work.

STAR WARS

Young Han Solo film drops directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller
ANTHONY BREZNICAN@BREZNICAN

POSTED ON JUNE 20, 2017 AT 7:35PM EDT


JONATHAN OLLEY
In a major upheaval in the midst of production, next year’s Star Wars movie focusing on a young Han Solo has broken ties with directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

No new filmmaker has been announced, but in a statement, Lucasfilm says the movie will remain on course for a May 2018 release.

“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director will be announced soon,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

Lord and Miller, whose previous projects include The LEGO Movie, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and the 21 Jump Street comedies, also issued a comment within the Lucasfilm announcement.



“Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” stated Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

A previously announced Star Wars stand-alone film, which sources tell EW was a Boba Fett movie, also dropped its director, Fantastic Four and Chronicle filmmaker Josh Trank — although that was long before even serious pre-production began. And Rogue One brought aboard frequent Bourne screenwriter and Michael Clayton filmmaker Tony Gilroy to assist on reshoots for that film, although original director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) stayed on the project until the end.

There had been no major rumblings of difficulty on the set of the young Han Solo movie, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as a 20-something version of Harrison Ford’s infamous smuggler, Donald Glover in the role of his duplicitous frenemy Lando Calrissian — originated in The Empire Strikes Back by Billy Dee Williams — and Joonas Suotamo taking over Chewbacca from Peter Mayhew.



The movie costars Thandie Newton and Emilia Clarke in unspecified roles, Woody Harrelson plays a mentor figure, and Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge will play a performance-capture character.

Whoever takes over the movie will inherit a project that has already undergone most, if not all, of its principal photography, and it’s not clear yet how much of the movie, written by Empire Strikes Back and The Force Awakens screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan (The First Time), will be reshot — if any.

For fans of Lord and Miller, who promised a comic sensibility for the stand-alone project, it’s disappointing news, and worrisome for Star Wars fans in general.

For now, the Millennium Falcon is in a holding pattern

‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff: Lord & Miller Fired After Clashing With Kathleen Kennedy (EXCLUSIVE)

Senior Film and Media Editor

JUNE 20, 2017 | 06:38PM PT
Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s reputation for writing irreverent, poppy films such as “21 Jump Street” and “The Lego Movie” helped the white-hot writing and directing duo land one of the most coveted gigs in Hollywood — a chance to call the shots on a “Star Wars” film.

But their chance to put their stamp on a galaxy far, far away collapsed on Tuesday with the stunning announcement that the pair would be departing the still untitled Han Solo spin-off movie in the midst of production. Their exit comes after months of conflict with producer Kathleen Kennedy, others from her LucasFilm team, and co-writer and executive producer Lawrence Kasdan, and the two directors hired to infuse the “Star Wars” universe with a tongue-in-cheek sensibility.

Miller and Lord were stunned to find that they were not being granted freedom to run the production in the manner that they were accustomed to. They balked at Kennedy’s tight control on the set.

‘Star Wars’: Lucasfilm Chief Previews ‘Rogue One’ and Han Solo Spinoff

A person with knowledge of the production said that the chemistry between the directors and Kennedy was never right.

“It was a culture clash from day one,” the source said. “She didn’t even like the way they folded their socks.”

The source said that while Lord and Miller were supposedly hired for their vision and distinctive brand of filmmaking when it came to the “Star Wars” production, Kennedy did not approve of their shooting style and process of interacting with actors and crew. “They weren’t given the leeway to do what they had to do,” the source said.

The duo also clashed with Kasdan, who has been an integral creative part of several “Star Wars” movies, dating back the the 1980 “The Empire Strikes Back.” Like Kennedy, he questioned many of the pair’s directing choices.

“Kathy, her team and Larry Kasdan have been doing it their way for a very long time. They know how the cheese is made and that’s how they want it made,” said the source. “It became a very polarizing set.”

In statements accompanying news of the directing shakeup, both Kennedy and Lord and Miller alluded to differing visions for the project.

“Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” said Lord and Miller in a statement.

Kennedy promised a new director would be announced shortly. It is unclear if and how Lord and Miller will be credited on the movie. Hollywood insiders said their forced departure in the middle of filming was a highly unusual situation.

Kennedy said in a statement, “Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways.”

The directors did not leave the production voluntarily, but were fired by LucasFilm. The decision comes as the Han Solo film still has several weeks left to shoot, according to another individual with knowledge of the production. An additional several weeks of reshoots have been planned to take place later this summer.

It’s not clear who will take over directing duties from Lord and Miller. Tony Gilroy (“Michael Clayton”) oversaw some of the reshoots for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” However, he will not be directing the Han Solo film, according to his spokesperson.

Kennedy had her own ideas about how the film should be shot. In an interview with Variety last year, she said she wanted the film to have “…a heist or Western type feel,” adding, “We’ve talked about Remington and those primary colors that are used in his paintings defining the look and feel of the film.”

Some insiders believe that while Kennedy wants to make a splash by hiring young indie directors such as Gareth Edwards (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”) and Rian Johnson (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”), she’s ultimately unwilling to empower them to make their own creative decisions.

Unlike Edwards and Johnson, Miller and Lord felt they had earned their stripes, having worked extensively in the major studio system.

The Han Solo film will focus on the Millennium Falcon pilot’s early days as a smuggler. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich in the role Harrison Ford made famous. The cast includes Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Michael K. Williams, and Emilia Clarke.

A spokesperson for Disney declined comment, other than to say that the Han Solo standalone remains slated for a May 25, 2018, release date. Lord and Miller’s reps also declined comment.

Sounds like Kennedy and Disney are struggling to find the right balance with the spin off anthology films of letting the directors make unique films that don't have to fit the mold of the saga episodes, but still fit within the Star Wars universe without feeling like something totally different. That's why you had big reshoots on Rogue One with Garrett Edwards basically losing control of the final cut. Sounds like KK tried to do the same thing with this but L&M weren't having it.

that the movies are still part of ONE big story. They cant feel that different. With Rogue One leading up to Ep4 within minutes of each other Edwards ultimately had to grasp that his vision, which may have been awesome, probably strayed way too far off from where Ep 4 picks up. Kathleen Kennedy wouldnt have stepped in for changes otherwise.

They have the creative freedom but its still on a leash. Its arguably the biggest franchise in movie history thats its new owners spent a good amount of money on and did a good job cleaning up the mess that it was left with (ie Legends) and making sure the story is more cohesive across all boards.

You gotta be quite delusional to think that you would be able to have 100% control lol

spin off it is. Rogue One led right into Episode IV so the tone HAD to match. Han Solo is a film about arguably the most popular character in the films so they have to be sure it fits with Harrison Ford's portayal.

Now eventually they'll likely do spin offs that aren't as connected with the original trilogy and if so those directors may have a bit more creative freedom. We'll see.

From my understanding this was supposed to be a truly stand alone prequel.

And why hire talent with a clear vision of the project if Kathleen just wanted a director for hire to what she wanted? She could've asked Brett Ratner to direct then.

the right balance with these. They want the spin offs to have their own tone and style - but if there are crossover characters (and in this case a MAJOR crossover character) then it still needs to fit within the overall Star Wars story and not confessing other canon.

For example, in A New Hope, Han was shown to be a straight up scoundrel. A liar, cheater, who would kill you in cold blood if it helped him get ahead. His encounter with Luke, Kenobi, and then Leia in A New Hope ended up changing him. So in this film, he needs to be an anti-hero at best. While it's fine for there to be a comedic tone, he also can't be doing straight up slapstick.

But to your point, you'd think that those type of creative decisions would have been made long before they started shooting. I'm guessing KK wanted to make big changes during reshoots and they weren't going for that.

In response to Reply # 64


  

          

and just start trying to make a good movie?

Rogue One was pretty different from the saga films.

Literally, only two things about this had me excited which was the cast and Lord/Miller. With them gone I'm a bit more apprehensive about this whole thing. Especially considering who they're gonna replace them with.

In response to Reply # 66


  

          

outright contradict the other films when you have crossover characters. I don't even think that KK was trying to have this film match the tone because they wouldn't have even brought in Lord and Miller. But you gotta have the characters making sense.

For example it's perfectly fine for the MCU films to have their own tone based on the vision of the directors. But you can't have Tony Stark in Spiderman Homecoming and him having a completely different personality from Tony Stark in other MCU films. That's a character thing not tone.

Rogue One is a bit of a unique case though. With that movie you have no major characters who were crossover, so they had flexibility to build their personalities however they wanted. The exception is on the villain side with Vader and Tarkin, and both of them definitely matched their characters from other films. (I know some people hated Vader's choke joke, I think it fits though.) So with Rogue One they didn't have to worry about the main characters fitting a certain tone at all. But what they DID have to worry about is the story not creating plot issues with the original trilogy since the plot of the film leads right into A New Hope. They also wanted to be sure that the end of the film did match the tone of A New Hope so you could watch the films back to back and have it make sense. So they did things like incorporating more of the John Williams SW themes at the end, being sure that the Tantive IV was an exact match for what was seen in ANH, making the graphics on the Death Star plans match what was seen in ANH, etc.

Obviously you can't have Han snorting intergalactic coke shooting pregnant aliens. But making it more slapstick or go for a darker film isn't going to ruin the main movies because these are separate. We had some bad movies in the Star Wars canon and the brand is as popular as ever. Unless they were really going off brand ("We are thinking Anchorman, but in space!") this just seems like micromanaging...for these directors star wars is special and I doubt they were going that far off the farm...its not like they hired Oliver Stone

They are ultimately NOT separate if they are still part of the bigger story. THAT is the problem, that thinking they are separate because they are "one offs" this is what confuses people. They started using those words to ward off rumours of them ever doing side trilogy's with these side stories because fans started getting worried. Thats why they always come out saying NO this is a one off story, there will be no sequel to it. Now do I ultimately believe that? Nope not for a second, especially if theres room for it and if the movie is widely successful. That being said a movie being focused on ONE character told in the the lineage of ONE story doesn't make it a separate movie. A separate movie would be a new made up character that we've never seen before that is far away from the Galactic War and no ties to any of the characters in the main trilogy.

I think the one place of the ONE story they are creating where they could really experiment and go the Game of Thrones type route while changing the feeling and the look is if they do The Old Republic. That wouldnt have to be necessarily funny, it could have a one-two jokes the way GOT has here and there. I think this would be the perfect starting point to experiment with tone etc. but even this still has to the things we love about Star Wars because its is also part of the ONE story.

Not all of these have to tie in and unless you got a draft of the script, I doubt you know whether this is supposed to tie back in or just be a fucking stand-alone film.

- His relationship with Lando
- A bit of Lando's backstory
- Han's orgins of being mentored by a another bounty hunter and becoming the man we see him in ANH
- Han's life as a bounty hunter
- How he made the infamous run in less than 12 parsecs

Yes. It ties into the main story. Its about Han. So therefore it ties into the story LOL Any side mission prior to what we see in ANH on any character is part of the ONE story. There is no debating this nor should it be hard to comprehend. Any side story is development of a character that ultimately leads into the ONE big shared story or shared universe.

In response to Reply # 83


  

          

A quick Google search gives sparse details on plot and this is what I found:
"Themed as a space Western, the film is centered on a young Han Solo, the roguish smuggler who later meets Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker in the Mos Eisley Cantina in Star Wars (1977) and his adventures with his Wookiee partner Chewbacca, including their encounter with Lando Calrissian"

You just putting assumptions out there now.

Maybe the guys had a great pitch for the type of movie....maybe it didnt end up feeling or looking like how they described. Kathleen Kennedy did mention that the 3 of them discussed it being a "Heist Spaghetti Western" with certain colour pallets being discussed, I think that sentence really shows that whatever Lord and Miller did, even if dope, wasn't what they discussed.

You can't say well why didn't she just hire someone who would what she wanted but they clearly discussed this. I'm pretty sure Lord and Miller are quoted saying the same thing before they started shooting. Their vision clearly just didnt line up with the rest of the lore. Do I know that for sure? No, but those sentences being brought up again show that it just wasnt right.

'Star Wars': Why the Han Solo Film Directors Were Fired

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-why-han-solo-movie-directors-were-fired-1015474

Ron Howard and Joe Johnston are possible contenders to replace Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

Creative differences is a term that is often used loosely when a director is fired from a Hollywood movie.

But it actually appears to ring true in case of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who have been let go by Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy from directing the ‪Star Wars spinoff that centers on the fan-favorite character Han Solo.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the style and vision of Lord and Miller clashed with that of Lawrence Kasdan, the legendary screenwriter behind the classics Empire Strikes Back and ‪Raiders of the Lost Ark, who also wrote, with his son, Jon Kasdan, the script for the Han Solo stand-alone set (for now) to be released in 2018.

Lord and Miller (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) have a comedic sensibility and improvisational style while Kasdan favors a strict adherence to the written word — what is on the page is what must be shot.

The creative clash, according to one insider, also came down to differences in understanding the character of Han Solo. “People need to understand that Han Solo is not a comedic personality. He’s sarcastic and selfish,” said that source.

The friction was felt almost immediately when the movie began shooting in February, sources say, but the directors always thought it could be worked through. Kennedy, the producer and head of Lucasfilm, decided to back her lifelong colleague, who shaped much of Solo’s character in Empire and ‪Return of the Jedi and who had a specific tone in mind for the new movie. The duo also didn’t feel they had the support of producer Allison Shearmur, who was acting as Lucasfilm’s representative on the London set.

Lord and Miller, who had relocated to London with their families for preproduction and production of the movie, were said to have been blindsided by the firing, which they learned about Monday, according to one source, although another disputed that account.

The production had gone on a short hiatus to review what had been shot and to clear the air.

"Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase 'creative differences' but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew," Lord and Miller said in a statement released Tuesday.

Lucasfilm and owner Disney have already targeted their replacement, although the companies are keeping mum.

Ron Howard is one of the names that has emerged, according to sources. Joe Johnston, who directed The Rocketeer and Jumanji, has been mentioned as another possible candidate. Others suggest that Kasdan, who has directed movies like ‪The Big Chill and Silverado, could step in as he is already in prime position to know what needs to be fixed. That move could be complicated by DGA rules preventing someone already working on a film taking over for a director that is being replaced except for a short-term emergency.

It is expected that a new director will take the next several weeks, with the production shut down, to go over what Lord and Miller have shot, re-edit what they’ve filmed “and go from there,” according to one source.

According to some observers, Lucasfilm should have known going in that a clash of tones could occur given Lord and Miller's previous work. But this is not the first time that Disney and Lucasfilm have had to take drastic turns on Star Wars movies. Last summer, the companies sidelined Gareth Edwards by bringing in Tony Gilroy to rewrite and direct substantial reshoots of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a move that happened only five to six months before the movie was released. Rogue One proved to be a massive hit, both financially and critically.

The studio now is more than willing to flex its muscle, and spend chunks of money, to protect the Star Wars brand and to ensure that it is not tarnished by a movie that doesn't deliver what fans want.

Lord and Miller's next move is not immediately clear, but already rumors are circulating that the pair could return to The Flash, Warners' movie about the DC Comics hero to which they had been attached to helm several years ago. The project is currently on the hunt for a director.

But fired in the middle of shooting? Wow. I'm guessing this gets pushed back to December 2018, keeping the new tradition of SW at the end of the year.

Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff: Lord & Miller Fired After Clashing With Kathleen Kennedy (EXCLUSIVE)

Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s reputation for writing irreverent, poppy films such as “21 Jump Street” and “The Lego Movie” helped the white-hot writing and directing duo land one of the most coveted gigs in Hollywood — a chance to call the shots on a “Star Wars” film.

But their chance to put their stamp on a galaxy far, far away collapsed on Tuesday with the stunning announcement that the pair would be departing the still untitled Han Solo spin-off movie in the midst of production. Their exit comes after months of conflict with producer Kathleen Kennedy, others from her LucasFilm team, and co-writer and executive producer Lawrence Kasdan, and the two directors hired to infuse the “Star Wars” universe with a tongue-in-cheek sensibility.

A person with knowledge of the production said that the chemistry between the directors and Kennedy was never right.

“It was a culture clash from day one,” the source said. “She didn’t even like the way they folded their socks.”

The source said that while Lord and Miller were supposedly hired for their vision and distinctive brand of filmmaking when it came to the “Star Wars” production, Kennedy did not approve of their shooting style and process of interacting with actors and crew. “They weren’t given the leeway to do what they had to do,” the source said.

The duo also clashed with Kasdan, who has been an integral creative part of several “Star Wars” movies, dating back the the 1980 “The Empire Strikes Back.” Like Kennedy, he questioned many of the pair’s directing choices.

“Kathy, her team and Larry Kasdan have been doing it their way for a very long time. They know how the cheese is made and that’s how they want it made,” said the source. “It became a very polarizing set.”

In statements accompanying news of the directing shakeup, both Kennedy and Lord and Miller alluded to differing visions for the project.

“Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” said Lord and Miller in a statement.

Kennedy promised a new director would be announced shortly. It is unclear if and how Lord and Miller will be credited on the movie. Hollywood insiders said their forced departure in the middle of filming was a highly unusual situation.

Kennedy said in a statement, “Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways.”

The directors did not leave the production voluntarily, but were fired by LucasFilm. The decision comes as the Han Solo film still has several weeks left to shoot, according to another individual with knowledge of the production. An additional several weeks of reshoots have been planned to take place later this summer.

It’s not clear who will take over directing duties from Lord and Miller. Tony Gilroy (“Michael Clayton”) oversaw some of the reshoots for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” However, he will not be directing the Han Solo film, according to his spokesperson.

Kennedy had her own ideas about how the film should be shot. In an interview with Variety last year, she said she wanted the film to have “…a heist or Western type feel,” adding, “We’ve talked about Remington and those primary colors that are used in his paintings defining the look and feel of the film.”

Some insiders believe that while Kennedy wants to make a splash by hiring young indie directors such as Gareth Edwards (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”) and Rian Johnson (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”), she’s ultimately unwilling to empower them to make their own creative decisions.

Unlike Edwards and Johnson, Miller and Lord felt they had earned their stripes, having worked extensively in the major studio system.

The Han Solo film will focus on the Millennium Falcon pilot’s early days as a smuggler. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich in the role Harrison Ford made famous. The cast includes Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Michael K. Williams, and Emilia Clarke.

A spokesperson for Disney declined comment, other than to say that the Han Solo standalone remains slated for a May 25, 2018, release date. Lord and Miller’s reps also declined comment.

"Bottom line..if Kathleen Kennedy didn't think it was right "


  

          

and the man who gave Han a voice we know and love didn't think it was right...Then I'm fully behind the firing.

Lord and Miller are talented...but EARNED your stripes to run your own Star Wars set? Bruh.....you got to be fucking kidding me LOL If this was an animated film cool you have free reign...but 21 Jump Street are just cool films..they aren't great fucking films man. I get you can argue Kathleen got a little ego on her as far as wanting to run a tight ship or being close creatively on a Star Wars film but c'mon....its one of the biggest franchises out there. YOU HAVE TO BE. Disney didn't put her in charge for no reason than she gets fucking results. Yeah she will let you cook on your own....but you better make sure its the recipe you discussed.

Rumours are Ron Howard, or Kasdan himself might finish it off. Possibly the dude who did Jumanji who I believe is slated to do the next Star Wars one off movie (the rumoured Bounty Hunters flick). Not bad replacement choices

But it's gotta be weird to be in a situation where you get hired for your talents and to run a set and you've got studio heads nitpicking on scenes, etc. So hiring of the young indie directors is not trying to give dudes a chance at a cheap price but to basically have workmen directors that are yes men?

Reason I was overjoyed Rian got the nod for Episode 2 is that with his fantastic genre work and presumably darker slant = possibility for greatness. If he's just there to fetch Kathy coffee...what's the point? Might as well upgrade a director of commercials then.

The thing is that heavy studio interference is why Marvel* and by extension Disney/Lucasfilm will never make a BAD movie...but why it probably will never make a GREAT one either, nahmean?


*not saying that they don't have their fair share of absolutely forgettable films. Was it here that asked if anyone remembers what happened in those first two Thor flicks? LOL.

*shrugs*

Its so easy as fans to say how studios or even sports teams should use their money they are investing just because it can be easily made back.

If thats corny. Cool. I'll be corny. Ionno what you wanna do with that sentiment but just because YOU want studios to do something a certain way because it makes sense to you as a fan to take those sort of risks is easier said than done especially looking from the outside, despite you working within that industry.....at the end of the day, its not YOUR money you are playing fantasy football/movie studio with.

Ewok movie
Jar Jar Bink

One could argue Clone Wars 15 min shorts were also pretty experimental

Etc

I can get hedging your bets, but like I said that kind of QA will make sure you will never have a bad movie (assuming those in charge know their shit, sorry WB) , but great movies ain't made by committee. You can still hit all the necessary character beats/plot points without having to follow a strict tonal template. Oceans 11 is a heist film, but so is Heat, and so is Quick Change (shouts to Bill Murray)

How do you know Lord And Miller didn't deliver what they promised?

How do we know they both just agreed on something and it just wasnt working out for what Lucas ultimately thinks is best for their company?

Im sure they knew EXACTLY what they signed up for. Shit just didnt work. It happens in creative collaborations ALLL the time

In response to Reply # 76


          


I honestly don't care enough to get into a debate about a Han Solo movie but look

If I hire someone at my gig, and they aren't a good fit, that's as much on me as them.

Unless they straight up lied.

Are you saying these two directors straight up lied??


They hired directors and didn't hammer out expectations/vision on tone?

They hired directors without knowing how they manage their sets, etc?

etc, etc.


I mean, I guess it is possible that they discovered they had a cocaine addiction or some sh!t


But if they were really canned for how they run their sets and that Lucasfilm didn't like the tone?


Yeah, that's on the company as they made a bad hire.


Who saw 21 Jump Street and said "Man, I'd like these dudes to direct a big budget Star Wars movie" ??


Maybe next time hand the keys to something like this to someone you know better and trust more?


Meh, I honestly don't see the point of this movie anyway, beyond the obvious $$

if it legitimately came down to creative differences, with KK and larry kasdan having one vision and L&M having another, i know which track record i'm siding with.

it is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. - sherlock holmes

All I'm saying is at some point they said "lets give these 21 Jump Street dudes a shot"...

and maybe that wasn't the best decision....


Not to mention, they are now seemingly 2 for 2 on needing to call for drastic changes in their spinoffs.


Relax, dog. You her nephew or something?


We all f*ck up. She f*cked up and hired some directors that she obviously shouldn't have.


Either way, my prediction is this entire ordeal is going to be 100x better and more interesting than the actual movie.

Lol the cliche "relax man why you emo about it" response

That shit never gets old

It's not LucasFilms fault those directors wanted to do their own thing not realising the situation they were in. They were brought for a little humour, word is they kept improvising and not making the movie they all planned. The lead actor playing Han even just came out saying that the loose improvising shoot was changing the tone and the story too much. So what else do you want? Lol Shit hsppens. Just like Kevin Smith said, they have enough money and time to throw at the movie to get it done how they want.

Stop being emo and just say u didn't know Kennedy's track record and keep it moving no need to front cause u were wrong lol

RON HOWARD TO ASSUME DIRECTORIAL DUTIES ON THE UNTITLED HAN SOLO FILM
Lucasfilm is pleased to announce that Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard has been named director of the untitled Han Solo film.

“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”

Howard has made some of the biggest hits and most critically-acclaimed movies of the modern era. Among his many films are Lucasfilm’s Willow, Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind (winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director), The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon, and Rush. He also narrated and produced the beloved comedy series Arrested Development, starred in George Lucas’ American Graffiti, and remains a TV icon for his roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Happy Days.

The untitled Han Solo film is slated for a May 25, 2018, release.

but it is. I probably would have seen it out of pure Pavlovian response but nothing about this excited me (other than maybe Donald Glover/Woody Harrelson). Now they've brought in the directorial equivalent of a cup of room temperature water to finish this out. yuck.

How is this any different than when Gilroy came in and did the same thing for Edwards on Rogue One?

Clean it up. Finish it up with the help of a capable director like Kasdan who also wrote it. Ron Howard is a polished and established director you would want to get a situation like this done how you want. Re-hiring another younger director at this point of the film would make no sense. I wont be surprised if the film still has a lot of what Lord & Miller brought but just toned down and done more of how it was initially planned amongst them all.

There ya go. Looks like Lord & Miller got a little chip on their shoulder and it shows in the teenage girl type tweet about it In May. I like them but they seem to have been really feeling themselves. You can't step to Hollywood royalty like Kasdan or Kennedy who have a way longer proven track record. These guy are still babies in the game

I mean you're riding hard for corporate right now?

I mean that site looks wild suspect. Especially considering the fact Entertainment Weekly dropped this:

http://ew.com/movies/2017/06/22/ron-howard-takes-over-directing-duties-on-han-solo-film/

How the Han Solo film broke apart — with Ron Howard picking up the pieces

Move comes just after directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired

Anthony Breznican @Breznican

Posted on June 22, 2017 at 11:06am EDT

Ron Howard is now steering the Millennium Falcon. And he has to maneuver it out of a giant asteroid field.

A little over a day after the directors of the upcoming Han Solo movie were fired, Lucasfilm has turned to the veteran filmmaker to steer the Star Wars project home.

“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”

Howard previously worked with Lucasfilm when he directed the 1988 fantasy adventure Willow, with Warwick Davis, Val Kilmer, and Joanne Whalley. And the A Beautiful Mind Oscar-winner also served as an unofficial adviser to George Lucas on his prequel films, having been a longtime friend ever since costarring in Lucas’s coming-of-age classic American Graffiti in 1973.

Brace yourself for a wave of “Help us, Opie-Wan Kenobi, you’re our only hope” headlines.

The Star Wars stand-alone project, starring Alden Ehrenreich in the role originated by Harrison Ford, was just weeks away from ending principal photography when directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, best known for The LEGO Movie, were dropped from the film Monday — with Lucasfilm and the filmmakers both citing “creative differences.”

The question remained for Star Wars fans: What exactly were those differences, and why were they so insurmountable that neither side was willing to compromise to avoid this public upheaval?

Here’s what we know now: Several sources close to the movie and others close to the directors tell EW that ever since filming began back in February, Lord and Miller, who are known primarily for wry, self-referential comedies like 21 Jump Street and the pilot episodes for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Last Man on Earth, began steering the Han Solo movie more into the genre of laughs than space fantasy.

Apparently, the split was a subtle one that became magnified over time: Lucasfilm and producer Kennedy believed Lord and Miller were hired to add a comedic touch; Lord and Miller believed they were hired to make a comedy.

It’s an ironic turn. Last year, when Rogue One was undergoing reshoots, fans were critical because they assumed Lucasfilm was trying to “lighten” the war story with more comedy. Those concerns were unfounded, but now the opposite may be the case for the Han Solo film: Lucasfilm wants young Han Solo to be more grounded.

As usual with stories like this, not all sources agree. Another individual close to the movie says it wasn’t a question about how much comedy would be in the film. The consensus, however, is that the filmmakers were encouraging significant improvisation from the actors, which some at Lucasfilm believed was shifting the story off-course.

With actors who are also writers, and gifted at coming up with their own material, like Atlanta creator and star Donald Glover in the role of Lando Calrissian and Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge as an unspecified motion-capture character (which in galactic terms, that usually signals a droid or alien), the sources say Lord and Miller began straying from the script by Star Wars veteran Lawrence Kasdan and his son, Jon Kasdan (The First Time).

One person close to the fired directors says: “They thought they were brought on to make a Phil and Chris movie. … Sometimes they just thought the actors could do it differently.”

But others on the project say they pushed too far. It wasn’t just a question of tone. The variations added up to significantly change the story. They may have been brought aboard to give young Han Solo a wiseacre vibe and an irreverent style, but Lucasfilm still felt the directors had a responsibility to tell the story as written.


When dailies began rolling in featuring improvisation from the actors and new ideas from the directors that significantly parted ways with the script, the relationship with the home office at Lucasfilm became fraught. As principal photography for the movie approached its end, it became clear that the filmmakers and producers did not share the same vision for some critical scenes.

Reshoots were always possible (they are factored into almost every major film these days, and each new Star Wars project has undergone them), but as Lord and Miller dug in, refusing to compromise on what they saw as best for the film, the partnership went from strained to fractured. If they wouldn’t do the scenes as Lucasfilm and Kennedy wanted them now, why would they do them that way during reshoots?

Sources close to the studio tell EW that Kennedy was also determined to do what was best for the film. Those perspectives were just different — and growing further apart.

After relaunching the franchise, which had taken damage from the critical reception of the Star Wars prequels, and building not just an acclaimed new saga with The Force Awakens but kicking off a series of stand-alone films with Rogue One, Kennedy felt she had earned her galactic bona fides: The directors should give her the benefit of the doubt and follow her concept of what the Star Wars movie should be.

Lord and Miller are well-liked within the industry and have a style that has often led studios to compete for their attentions, but Kennedy — whose long history of credits include Back to the Future, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and Jurassic Park — also has an immense, proven track record. Backing her was Kasdan, Star Wars royalty — the screenwriter of The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

They became immovable objects. If the filmmakers were refusing to make the movie Lucasfilm expected, why continue?

On Monday, Lord and Miller were told they were terminated. The production was put on hold.

Howard’s name began circulating immediately, but yesterday his agency, CAA, was still saying a deal hadn’t been reached. This morning, it was done.

He will have two weeks to get to England and get up to speed on where things are, where they went awry from the studio’s point of view, and come up with a plan to complete it — if not on time, then with minimal extension to the schedule.

Meanwhile, Lord and Miller will begin packing up and heading home. Reps for the directors declined to say whether they might return Warner Bros.’ big-screen version of the DC Comics superhero The Flash, which they had left to take on the Han Solo movie. But since they were fired over a difference of vision, rather than an out-of-control production, they aren’t expected to take a massive career hit.

A source close to them said they wouldn’t have bad blood toward Howard. “Somebody has to take over the movie.”

Some close to the pair say Lord and Miller see the Han Solo film like a romantic break-up. It’s the end of an unhappy relationship, something they once deeply cared about, even if there is no future together.

To paraphrase the smuggler and the princess:

“I don’t love you.”

“I know.”

103. "If that EW story is true then I'm definitely on Disney's side here. "
In response to Reply # 102


  

          

I say "if" because EW and specifically Anthony Breznican are essentially the unofficial PR arm of Lucasfilm. When they want to "leak" something it goes to Breznican first. So that may just be the spin that Disney/Lucasfilm wants to put on it.

But if it's true, Disney is clearly right in firing Lord and Miller. If they are encouraging so much improvisation and deviation from the script that they are making a comedy, that isn't good. Sounds like they may have been doing a 21 Jump Street type of thing where they were making a Star Wars movie that made fun of itself. A little bit of that is okay - for example in Rogue One having the "I've got a bad feeling about this" line get cut off was hilarious - but that was a joke that still actually made sense in story because you had K2-SO saying the line and getting hushed after we'd been hearing him with sarcastic quips the entire movie. But I can definitely see Lord and Miller shooting this but going way further with that type of humor, to the point that it would almost feel like a parody of Star Wars.

I also think that the EW story fits perfectly with the starwarsnewsnet story he posted u above. I'm nowhere near as positive as Heinz is on this Han Solo film - I think this is a mess and it probably isn't gonna get fixed. But I'm definitely on Disney's side based on what we've heard so far.

then you will know that "suspect" looking site is one of the most trusted sites to break news of the whole lore.

Also..I dont understand all the shit in that "suspect" article had everything in this article you posted other saying that it was Alden who said something to the produces, which I dont think EW would ever confirm publicly. Why would they.

Because I don't agree with you im riding for corporate? Its one or the other with you? This isn't high school bruh.

all through this post.

It's weird to see people cape for multi-billion dollar corporations like you are. And to say this is some high school shit when you early are trying to say "it's not your money" is highly contradictory.

And I say that that site looks sus cause it looks like a 2001 era blog.

As for SW news, outside of noted sites, the only place I trust is makingstarwars.com as 90% of their shit panned out to be true.

Plus the characters Woody and Emilia Clarke are playing. The set looks dope. Not mad at how Han is looking either.

https://www.starwarsnewsnet.com/2017/07/tmz-reveals-leaked-star-wars-han-solo-set-pictures-footage.html

I'm gonna assume Lucas "leaked" these to TMZ so fans can see the movie is going smoothly. With D23 next week lets hope we at least get an official movie title and a little bit of a teaser trailer with the stuff they had already shot with Lord & Miller. It can be super short but I think they could pull something off. Look at Guardians of the Galaxy they put up a teaser after shooting for only 2 weeks. They can do that here.

We are even lucky he was allowed to show that much but i think these pics and the TMZ "leaks" (those have to be done deliberately) were what we get now since they knew we werent getting a teaser trailer or trailer of any kind.

Donald Glover Feels Like "the Baby in the Divorce" After Han Solo Shake-Up


Ron Howard stepped in to direct after Chris Miller and Phil Lord were fired: "You sort of feel like, 'I know I'm not your first choice … ,' and you worry about that."

For Donald Glover, playing young Lando Calrissian has come with an unexpected complication.

Stepping into the shoes of the iconic Star Wars character played by Billy Dee Williams was always going to be challenging, but behind-the-scenes drama on the Han Solo spinoff became public in June when directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired over creative differences with Lucasfilm.

In this week's Hollywood Reporter cover story, Glover is opening up about the changes on set, which saw Ron Howard step in as director.

"Ron is such a legend, and he knows exactly what the vision for what he is doing is. … hired us, so you sort of feel like, 'I know I'm not your first choice … ,' and you worry about that," Glover told THR television editor Lacey Rose over a meal in London. "To be honest, I don't know exactly what happened. I feel like I was the baby in the divorce, or the youngest child. The oldest child is like, 'We know what's happening, but we are keeping you out of it.' And I'm just like, 'Was that scene good? How did you feel?' "

Glover also spoke about a lunch he had (in disguise) with Williams in January, three months after being cast as Lando. An admittedly nervous Glover expounded on ideas he had for the character: "I was like, 'I've always felt like this character could do this, and he represents this, and I kind of feel like he comes from here, and it's very obvious he has a lot of taste, so maybe he grew up seeing that from afar? Because I'm like that. Maybe he saw it from other planets and was like, 'I want to be that.' " Glover said, laughing as he shared the memory. "He just let me ramble on and on, and then finally I was like, 'So, what do you think?' And he goes, 'Yeah, I don't know about all that. Just be charming.' "

Shortly after the lunch in January, Williams spoke with THR about the two Landos meeting — and shared his own side of the story.

"He’s a very delightful young man, I must say. We had a very nice lunch and we talked for a very long time and it was very easy," Williams said at the time. "He had questions about . I guess he was doing what normal actors do, they just want to find out what direction they want to take so they gather their information. So, we just sat and talked, and I didn’t want to impose on anything he wanted to do — he’s got his own ideas, I would imagine. I know he has his own ideas. He’s a very talented young man. In fact, I was listening to some of his music and it’s pretty good stuff."

The Han Solo spinoff opens May 25, 2018. Read the full THR cover story here.

The fact that it's short is best because they want to keep the tag line "a star wars story" on all these types of movies. Something like "Smugglers Run" would be cool but would be too long for them. They still want to get casual fans or people who don't know the franchise interested by letting them know it's part of Star Wars. I think it's smart. As much as is nerds know the world there's still many who dint

But, using 'Han Solo: Smuggler's Run - A Star Wars Story' would have worked for me. It would give me a sense of intrigue and at least frame what the movie would likely be about.

Maybe it's because I didn't take to Han as a kid and so to just refer to him by his last name seems uncool.

This might be an older image before they had the official title or this is the international title but yeah...I like how the characters look, hopefully they get the mannerisms right for Han and Lando

Apparently we should start seeing marketing and images for this movie very soon

In response to Reply # 120


          

Okay. It's a billion dollar franchise. In just recent times they have fired directors and writers MID-SHOOT just to make sure the right Star Wars movie gets made.

And now, with several months still to go before the movie release, Disney is expecting its big cash cow...to bomb?

I call bullshit.

I'm not saying it'll be great. Outside of Donald Glover and whatshername from Fleabag, I was underwhelmed by the cast. But a bomb? Hardly. That just sounds like someone spreading shitty rumors. If that really was the case, we wouldn't hear that Disney is bracing for a bomb--we would be hearing about more reshoots.

Like Disney would just go "Ah we'll just let this one tank and get the money back on episode 9." That's not quite how shit goes down lol.

bomb for SW maybe I can see Justice League type numbers for this one but will still make money. I do believe this will be the least highest grossing SW movie yet, but far from a bomb. This is the first one I'm not too excited about, a good trailer could change that tho.

They are tweaking it. It's not new or a red flag.

Although don't get me wrong, I'm hella skeptical on this one. I don't know about Ron Howard, plus I'm not sure I need or want a new Star Wars film less than a year after the last one. This ain't the MCU. One Star Wars movie every Christmas is more than enough.

In response to Reply # 129


          

The Force Awakens felt like a big event.
Rogue One felt like a big event.
The Last Jedi felt like a big event.

Solo feels like...not a big event. At all. And not just because in general I don't get excited about movies with Woody Harrelson.

And I could really care less about Han Solo's character apart from Harrison Ford's performance. The only part that even has me kind of interested is Donald Glover as Lando, because so far he has been holding shit DOWN--even if it just means five minutes in Spiderman.

That said...I'm still going to see this opening night when it comes out. As much as I hate to admit it, right now Disney still has all of us Gen X mufuckas on lock.

In response to Reply # 131


          

The last three Star Wars flicks felt (to ME) like major cinematic events. I was excited about them all year. And IMO they delivered, but the point is that each one was the NEXT. BIG. STAR WARS. FILM. Each time, the anticipation started up more than a year before the movie came out.

With this one, I'm just like okay, sure. I'm not too thrilled about the cast apart from Donald Glover, very lukewarm about Ron Howard in the director's chair...and in general, I'm not terribly interested in Han Solo's backstory.

Again, I'm still going to see it opening night, with the same group of friends I've been going to see Star Wars with for the last twenty sum years. And sure, I'll check out the trailer when it drops. Who knows, maybe it'll be great. It's just that this is the very first Star Wars film that I'm not excited about at all. Even counting those terrible prequels.

I'm gonna go to my press screening.

I like the cast.

But man a movie about Han's backstory sounds boring. Same with a Boba Fett movie or a Yoda movie and so on and so on.

Lord and Miller made me excited cause they took unnecessary movies and made them great. Ron Howard has me back in disinterested mode.

Who knows. Maybe it'll be fire.

People had the same complaints about production, not seeing much, or even a story with no lightsabers or jedi/sith. Then the trailer dropped and people changed but the casual fans didn't really know much about like they did with TFA. I'm not one to panick.

Is later than I want to see a trailer or poster? Of course but with the circumstances of production I rather than fix what they need to fix and showe when it's ready. That's what we are getting. *Shrugs*

It is very much debatable. Especially if you are in the perspective of not caring about the idea of a Han movie in the first place. The leak of the toys are pouring out now, they are ready to go. Let them cook.

I didn't say the Han Solo movie is not a big event. I said it doesn't feel like a big event. TO ME. Unless you are on some Professor X shit, I don't see how we can debate my lack of excitement.

Like bwood said, maybe it will end up being good? So far Disney has been keeping it real with both the MCU and these new Star Wars movies, so it's not like there's no hope. And I don't even care about the reshoots. But I don't know. I'm not feeling the hype for this, plus the fact that a trailer's not even out...I mean the last three Star Wars movies were in December, and I want to say that each time there was at least a teaser trailer out by January. For a big franchise like this that seems a bit suspect.

But whatever. We'll see.

There just really isn't much that I'm excited about for this one at all, based on the story content, the director, and the cast. To Heinz's point, I felt the same way about Rogue One at first. However the big difference was the fact that the first trailer dropped 9 months or so before it came out, and that trailer got me hype. In the following months with all the news about big reshoots I was worried, but the next trailer that dropped in the fall had me hype as heck again. It definitely felt like a big event. Then the movie dropped, I loved it, and all was good in the world.

With Solo though a major difference is the fact that we are so close to it's release with no trailer, so really all we have to go on is the subject of the story, the director, and the cast, all of which are "meh" to me, then on top of that a director change and even more massive reshoots than Rogue One.

A small thing that adds to it is the fact that this is dropping in May and not December. While May used to be the traditional spot for Star Wars, after the last three years Star Wars has become a holiday tradition. A May release will have way more competition for people's attention, and just doesn't feel like as much of a special thing as the December SW releases. With all of the reshoots that happened, and the close release after TLJ stopping them from promoting Solo with a regular timeline, I'm not sure why they didn't just move Solo to December.

All this being said - if the trailer drops and is really good - then I'll get hype and maybe at that point it will feel like a "big event." We'll see...

Definitely. This is such a small thing but honestly if Solo were being released in December I would be at least somewhat more interested in it, despite the reshoots and changes. Like you said, it has become a holiday tradition with me and old friends. But releasing it so early after TLJ, no trailer out, production problems, and in general a backstory that doesn't have me too hyped...

But yeah, the reason I don't really even want to argue this with Heinz is that at the end of the day, I'm going to see it regardless. They would have to seriously release a movie WORSE than the prequels to really slow down the money train at this point. I would probably go see that shit even if they cast Wilford Brimley as Han Solo.

Harrison Ford fart videos and I would still be there day one with my pre-sale seats. At the end of the day, it's Star Wars. Disney might as well have a direct debit set up on my bank account - because I'm giving them my money. But we all know the feeling of anticipation that we typically get for these, and I don't have that right now for Solo.

That Disney puts more focus on new Star Wars stories than doing these origin stories to answer all those questions that nobody actually asked.

Even the Old Republic might be more interesting. Han? Obi Wan? Bobba Fett? No thanks.

In response to Reply # 148


  

          

anthology "Star Wars Story" films. To me, RO was the trial balloon that was put out there to see if people would care about a SW film that doesn't have any of the known major characters in it. And it did it in a somewhat "cheating" way by having it still have HUGE connections with the original trilogy. I'd love to see them go further down this path with smaller stories within the universe that aren't as connected to the main Empire/Rebellion conflict. That would make it much easier for directors to explore completely different genres and storytelling techniques while still being in the universe.

I don't really want to see a Bobba Fett movie, but a bounty hunter movie staring a new character that maybe even has a Fett cameo would definitely work. Maybe a movie about an imperial officer, from their perspective, dealing with the aftermath of Endor and ROTJ. There would be a connection to the main story, but that would only be the backdrop for something that could be a new and original take.

While I would love something about the Old Republic era, I can see why they want to stay away from that timeline because it could play into what's happening in the saga films, and because they want to save it for it's own trilogy. But I'm really not itching to see "Yoda, the Young Years".

we'll def get more character development than just finding out these things from his story that we sort of already know abut get to see.

Plus theres a slew of characters it seems that we will be meeting where he has his own adventures with. I'm still hopeful for this movie *shrugs* i might be the only one but im just not one to panic

And just because some arent interested in his story or you particular doesn;t mean there isnt a good story to tell.

Rogue One was dope. It wasnt neccessary but it showed it can make a good movie out of a simple concept or even 1 line from a crawl. We didn't need it nor we did need to see it....but it worked and it was dope. The real value comes from Rogue One is knowledge that they can make us care about a story we already know and about new characters we don't know. But storyline wise of the whole Star Wars lore. Yeah we didn't need it. Doesn't mean it wasnt a good film or have value.

I think the biggest thing people need to just admit who are on screaming the same argument is that you want NEW shit NOW rather than later. But thats more of you problem.

I'm not saying what they "should" did just stating what I'd prefer to see. Unlike the deplorable, alt-right dorks who cried about TLJ not being their granpappies SW, I don't feel any such sense of entitlement.

>And just because some arent interested in his story or you
>particular doesn;t mean there isnt a good story to tell.

You have it backward: I don't think there's an interesting story to tell.

It's nothing but stating the obvious to counter that with what is essentially just a rehash of The Dude line.

Yes, I know, my personal opinion has no bearing on what th he final product will actual look like.

I don't think any m If he is "necessary", nor do I require it to be necessary or even integral for it to be "good".

Oh...
....k

Not real sure what you're addressing here, but I'm not saying a Han Solo film needs to be necessary. I'm saying that there are better stories to tell. I already know that's just, like, you know, my opinion, man. Same as you have yours.


>I think the biggest thing people need to just admit who are on

>rather than later. But thats more of you problem.

100% wrong. It's about not wanting THIS. The criticism of THIS isn't rooted in anything but THIS.

Is that cool with you, that some people aren't excited for or see the ultimate appeal of a solo Solo flick? Because, like it or not.... you don't get to tell other people what they REALLY think, because that would make you a literal mind reader, which would make you a superhero.

Please explain how not understanding the appeal equates to whining. I really need to see the math on that, because its absurd.

As far as "too", nah. Hard pass. That *you* are going to see it is not an indication that *I* am going to see it.

159. "So the film's run time is reportedly 2 hours and 23 minutes"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Which undercuts/discredits the hot take that Disney thinks the movie is shit. Because if they thought it was shit or was going to bomb, they wouldn't green-light a nearly two and half hour run time. They'd could the shit out of it so that it be 90 to 100 minutes so that they could maximize the numbers of times theaters could show it per day.

In response to Reply # 160


  

          

...just over two hours.

And the Disney ones aren't THAT much longer than many of Lucas'. Rogue One and Force Awakens were shorter than Clones and Sith.

The quality of this film is of course yet to be determined. I'm just saying Disney doesn't THINK it's going to be shit or a bomb.

The Superbowl teaser had just enough to get me hype - a couple iconic shots, and kept Alden as Solo hidden. But seeing and hearing him in the full trailer it just doesn't feel right.

I'm still there day one tho...

In response to Reply # 179


  

          

Even through the first half of the trailer I'm almost buying him as Han. First red flag was his delivery of the "Huh...what's that?" line. It sounded and looked really awkward. Seemed like a moment that should have been charismatic Han Solo and I didn't get that at all.

I could chalk it up to trailer editing, but the line at the end "I thought we were in trouble there for a second but it's fine...we're fine" just didn't feel like Solo at all. I'm guessing the dialogue was kind of a call back to A New Hope during the Princess Leia rescue when he said "we had a weapons malfunction but we're fine here...we're fine...how are you?" So my issue isn't with the line, but the delivery. The smile on his face doesn't feel like sarcastic Han Solo. The pitch of his voice. It just doesn't feel right.

Everything else about the trailer was really really good. But if I can't buy him as Solo, nothing else matters.

Hes supposed to deliver that awkwardly, that's Han's classic insecure fake confidence thing. So sure unsure attitude. I thought that was well delivered.

To be fair you have to let go out the whole Harrison Ford thing. He's not trying to do an impression and I think as fans we shouldn't want him to. IF they wanted that they wouldve went and hired that kid who does a great impression of Harrison but sucks at acting. This kid is doing his own version of Han and its as close of a comparison to Harrison as we should want from him. So far it doesnt seem out of character in dialogue or acting, its not Harrison..I can def agree on that. But it felt like Han to me.

It's like Hanks doing Ben Bradlee in The Post when Jason Robards owned that role in All The President's Men. I think once you let go of the actor who did the original role and just focus on the character traits and story itself then you can start to enjoy the movie. You guys gotta let go of the voice and look. I think thats where I've always been at with it. It looks like a great movie SO far. I find it hard to believe that after all that time waiting, finally seeing this material they can't finally say the overall movie looks promising compared to their first thoughts on this movie even at concept. I get being hesitant but this material they gave us so far has been great.

OH btw ummm more Bradford Young in Star Wars please!!!!! Shit is looking beautiful.

In response to Reply # 189


  

          

I may not say that in 2 years depending on how this ends up.

Its a story we didn't really need. I'm not really interested in seeing Han's backstory. I can read books for that. After IX I hope they just stay away from all the old characters and create new stories. The new Rian Johnson trilogy sounds much more interesting if its its own thing which sounded like what they want. Don't care about a Yoda, Obi-Wan, Boba Fett, etc backstories and hope they don't do them but I'm sure they will...

I predict that it will do well, but not do the usual Star Wars numbers. I would be really surprised if it did. Besides just being lackluster, I would just think that by the time it comes out people will still be going back to see Infinity War for the 3rd or 4th time (unless that is a surprising, devastating flop too).

Personally I hope this does just well enough to keep the blood pumping in the franchise, but not well enough to warrant more origin stories.

Like go mack said, I'm hyped for my nigga Rian's trilogy as it's gonna be different (rumored to explore the Outer Rim) and it'll make niggas mad (laughs).

However, Solo sounded like a bad idea from the jump. Taking away the only thing that had me interested (besides Bradford Young's photography) has me back in disinterested territory.

Add in the fact that the trailers are unspectacular and viola.

I don't want this to be bad, as I don't want to review a bad movie. Yet at the same time as BigWorm pointed out if this shit is too dope, then this shit is gonna run into the ground with more fan service stories with Jabba, Yoda, Boba Fett, Obi-Wan (which is already in motion).

I hate Simon Kinberg, but I'm glad he killed Josh Trank's Boba Fett movie. Not because I hate Trank, but because we'd be in the same situation we're in now.

Also, keep in mind that this is dropping during some heavy competition. Infinity War will still be going strong, Deadpool 2 drops the week before. Action Point and Ocean's 8 the weeks after.

doesnt make sense because his backstory is not Canon anymore. All the stuff we knew of him is Legends/EU stuff. So YES its needed, you just prefer to not see it you would rather see new characters and new stories. Which is fine, that shit is understandable and I want that too. But why can't we have both? Why cant stories about characters we know and love come to fruition on the big screen while new stories within the same universe of new characters, worlds and adventures be told? Why is it one or the other. It's like you think just because Solo story is being told we are losing out on a moment for a new one to be told in its place. Nah. They clearly are setting up the future for more Star Wars to be told on the screen whether its in a 2 new trilogy's or all these tv series they plan on doing. Only thing I care they make sure happen is that the quality is the same throughout. Like they havent done with Marvel. Marvel's one big flaw is that the quality from the shows to the movies dont match and its something they are fixing with this new service apparently.

I think a lot of the arguments about this shit is just people not being upfront about what they really want or fear. Fuck we are old, i want more Star Wars and as much Star Wars stories as I can get before we die. I give zero fucks about the possibility that it ruins it past my life time LOL

niggas ain't hyped for this.

I stopped reading once you started talking about all that extended universe shit.

I've never read the books and never will. I will live and die with the movies and Rebels. I didn't even watch The Clone Wars cause the prequels we're shit.

I got enough of Han's history in the OG trilogy. The Kessel Run. Him trying to pay off Jaba. Him winning the Falcon from Lando. So yeah this is good enough. Also, I'm not old. You may be. I'm not.

Like I'm glad you're hyped for this shit (someone has to be), but at the end of the day, shit like this dilutes the brand. I'm getting a tad tired of Star Wars. These prequel spinoffs don't help.

Don't do the hype up hype up with me, it doesn't work. I wasnt attacking you but if you took it that way that's more of a you problem than it is a me problem. I'm pretty much on the same page as you but I just what we both want go happen at the same time, I'm unsure why people who have that same argument as you need to have it one way or nothing. There's no logic to it. Read my reply fully and you will see you just jumped to conclusions towards my point. Shrugs

I don't know why you thought that came across angry but whatever. I'm just tired of explaining why some niggas (me included) aren't hyped for this.

I read your post and still stand by what I said.

Sorry, but this movie isn't needed.

One of the things I love in the OG movie is Han charging at forward only to turn back and run away cause he's never done this shit before. Now because of this he infact has.

I'm not excited about a Han Solo movie. I don't care about his backstory. He's a smuggler. He's a jerk. He was just out to make bank and fly away until Luke and Leia gave him a reason to fight for a bigger cause. OKAY. I'm good.

Personally the only interest I have in prequels is the idea that they *MIGHT* change the context of the original movie.

Sadly, that almost never happens. Instead, most prequels just expound on things that were just hinted at, casually mentioned or implied in the original movie. Like the Kessel Run, which I couldn't give any less of a shit about.

This is why I prefer new material.

I'd love the Solo movie to really drop a big surprise on us. Like maybe Solo had the potential to be a powerful Jedi, but he rejected it all because he wouldn't buy into the Lore. That would not only put his tone in A New Hope into context, but it would also go further to explain how Kylo Ren is so strong with the Force. But I seriously doubt they would do anything even remotely that interesting.

Han doesn't need to be demystified.

Look, maybe I'm wrong and we'll learn some surprising things about Han. And I'll be the first to come back and say that and say the movie's dope.

But so far, little has made this interesting.

Last time we got something explaining shit, it was the prequel trilogy and look how that turned out.

Plus niggas in this post are not helping this movie's case.

I hope this not like the live-action Beauty and the Beast and more like the live-action Jungle Book. Neither one was needed. But one added a lot to the OG movie while the other one was a cash grab.

I'm old...and I "kinda" agree with you...

As a kid and young adult I LOVED all the shit alluded to in the OT that you mentioned regarding backstory that was just mentioned in passing. That shit was awesome and made a large universe, seem even larger to me as a kid.

As an adult, and having the Internet and more content providers (netflix, cable, hulu, amazon, etc) you can't add a line of dialogue like "completed the kessel run in 12 parsecs" into a show or movie without fanboys clamoring for more info on it. We're spoiled by the ability for other avenues that allow studios to explore backstories and that has pretty much become the standard and we all have come to expect if something is relatively successful a prequel or sequel will follow whether there's really enough material there or not.

All that said...I'm interested in the Solo movie, because as a kid we would go years in between new SW content (movies) and I'm just happy to see content set in that universe being explored more than every 2 or 3 years. Would the movie be better if they came out every 2 or 3 years? maybe. But I'm just happy to have something to watch and judge for myself.

Your explanation is on why you want to see it is perfect.

I can understand that.

And to your points on why backstory has to be explained, your right. Fanboy culture is huge right now and I think a big part of that is that TV is in its golden age right now. We get show explaining every facet of events that occur over the course of years, it's kinda bled over into movies (this and Marvel being prime examples).

Exactly. If we didn't have all these backstorys being told these days I think it would let everyone's imaginations run even wilder instead of people not sweating what the backstorys are because they know they're gonna get it in a year or two.

We're right on the same too as to your other post. I never got into the EU stuff that dropped prior to TFA. I think i read one book and maybe a couple comics that were given to me by a friend to check out but I never really thought any of that was canon nor ever would be.

And I'm SOOOO glad I didn't because now that everything is canon, I would have wasted years of my life reading that shit, and thousands of dollars on books I imagine, all for it to be thrown out the window.

Now...since TFA I have started copping all the marvel comics, still haven't got into the novels though, but it is a little more interesting to me now that it is all considered cannon and characters and events from from them may show up in TV/movies in the future. I've been digging the Vader and SW comics, but I'm about to stop reading all the others I think. A little too much info I don't really need.

Lucas and now Disney had been serving up variations of the same meal for forty years so any change in recipe is gonna have niggas flipping out even if its for the best because Star Wars movies are basically comfort food. Which is ironic considering the non movie properties (books/clone wars) sold to the hardcore actually do well to push the paradigm forward...but its also telling how far removed they are from the source material (how easy they got made non-canon with a swipe of the hand, how those stories that now are cannon are effectively separate character development wise).

But in the movies the fans have the expectation if its not Skywalkers and friends doing awesome swasbuckling shit = the worst movie ever, lol. They’ve trained them to expect the same character beats, same character archtypes, same general plotting, same very specific corner of a vast universe. If solo successfully scratches that nostalgia itch while being a clearly inferior movie (personally I think they gonna pull it off tho) expect your Solo>TLJ rants at ya local social media hub because it gave them the same greasy Mcdonald’s burger they are used to where my nigga Rian tried to actually add some seasoning.

Its a new age; Five Guys, Shake Shack, In and Out. I don’t expect a steak house burger but our tastes should have evolved. IComic book movies are successfully mining higher character, ethical and life themes in a family friendly format with unusual character beats and genre/script ideas you wouldn’t expect from niggas in tights, time for starwars to do the same

Like it was said above, its odd that we need to fill in the blanks particularly when the non-movie mediums plainly do a better job along with pushing the paradigm forward. We don’t need to see Sauron going up the young demon ranks pre Hobbit, Morpheus learning kung fu, etc

Alden as Han Solo. After seeing this full trailer, the jury is still out on Alden as Solo...BUT I didn't cringe seeing him like I did in the teaser. More importantly - after getting a bit more on what the movie looks like, I don't think it's success hinges as much on Alden as I originally thought. This looks like a full ensemble fun heist film which happens to be set in the SW universe and happens to have Solo in it.

And that is the direction I hop they start going in these one off SW Story films - ensemble driven, genre movies that happen to be set in the SW universe. It worked for Rogue One. Looks like there's elements of that in Solo. I just want less of a connection to beloved characters so we aren't getting origin stories left and right.

While I've seen all of the Star Wars movies and enjoyed most of them, even parts of the prequels, I don't consider myself a ride or die fan. So, I didn't think I wanted a Han backstory movie but the more I see of the movie, granted these are trailers, the more I'm interested in seeing this.

The humor worked well enough and it's interesting to me to see a story involving the original characters which isn't epic and dealing with the fate of the galaxy.

Granted, I'm not expecting much from this. As long as it's semi-funny and exciting, I'll be okay.

Like someone else said, Bradford Young did his thing. If nothing else, it'll be gorgeous.

But if this is a success does anyone think Lucasfilm will change their standards for choosing directors? Maybe since this would have been the second standalone movie to undergo major changes in post-production that they'll actually admit that they don't want the basic template messed with.

It's interesting that they hired up-and-coming directors for Rogue One and Solo and then brought in experienced filmmakers in Gilroy and Howard to bring the movies home. It's like they can't decide if they want to go the Marvel route and just ask the directors to make movies the Lucasfilm way or go the DC/WB way and allow the directors to use their style to influence the universe.

In response to Reply # 205


  

          

Rogue One's premise > "SOLO"

in my opinion at least

but I understand why they're doing it this way, these are still wildly popular characters.

They're making these stories up, it's not like they're wed to some kind of source material because they're basically writing the source material from scratch. So take risks. Do a feel-good movie about the engineers who built Cloud City - you can still hit Lando in there, or do a Talladega Nights version of a pod race movie (the pod race is the only watchable part of PM to me.) Just get weird - you're writing these origins on the spot and people are going to see these movies no matter what.

That being said, I'll still gladly go see this Han Solo movie night 1.

I'm just saying that they can (and will) do all three types. Disney is in this for the long haul, and I'm sure that they absolutely see the Star Wars franchise as a money-printing machine a la the Marvel movies, so these aren't going away.

So we'll get the universe expansion with the Johnson and B&W. There'll be the origin stories, because characters like Obi-Wan and Boba Fett are still very popular and have following. And we'll get some different type of stand-alone stuff too. After Rogue One was such a hit, Disney said they wanted to bring back Felicity Jones for more movies, and they've gotten the origin stuff her out of the way. No reason they can't and won't do more adventurous stuff with the franchise.

220. "look, man, nobody here is going to be mad if it does well"
In response to Reply # 205


          

Maybe trolls and salty teenagers, but that's about it.

I've been watching Star Wars movies since I've been old enough to actually watch and understand movies. I don't *want* a Star Wars movie to be bad. NOBODY wants a bad Star Wars movie. I'd like to think that Disney and Lucasfilm took a good hard look at why and how the prequels didn't work so well, and are being careful not to repeat those mistakes.

I'm not terribly interested in these origin movies, but I'm still going to see this one. I want to enjoy it. I hope I leave the theater thinking, "DAYUM. Who knew Ron Hoard had a movie like THIS in him?!?" And then maybe I'll be a little more on board for a Bobba Fett/Obi-Wan/Jabba origin movie. Hell, they could even be planning to make a movie all about the Jawas, for all I know.

I'm just not sure about it cause it didn't look like a good idea on paper, less so after all the news, and even less so after the first couple of trailers.

IT'S STAR WARS SO YOU SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY BE HYPED TO SEE THIS DESPITE HAVING A VALID OPINIONS ON WHY IT GIVES YOU PAUSE.

224. "For someone who's not hyped for this movie..."
In response to Reply # 223


  

          

...you sure spend a lot of time telling people how not hyped you are. As opposed to, say, looking at the trailer, thinking, "Nah, doesn't look interesting to me" and moving on. I don't generally make a dozen responses regarding a film I'm not hyped about seeing.

So considering how not hyped and clearly not mad you are about this film, I imagine the logical response would be to not make a deluge of points telling people how you think "Solo" doesn't look good.

225. "So PTP is only for movies we're excited about? Since when?"
In response to Reply # 224


          

I liked The Last Jedi. Quite a bit. So did bwood actually. But A LOT of people didn't. Mufuckas hated it so much that they started a petition to have it not counted as a real Star Wars movie. Fuck is that even about?

But now if we--actual Star Wars fans--try to have a dialogue about our lack of excitement for and apprehension toward the new movie--a movie we're still planning to go see--everyone's coming at us like we were talking shit about Carrie Fisher?

Just let us voice our lack of hype, man. You do you. I get it; I'm hyped as hell for Infinity War, just like you are for this. And don't worry, if we are wrong about Solo, bwood will quite literally be the first person to come here and post about it and let us know that the shit is fire.

There's cats in The Meg post who say it looks like trash and are not interested. I'm not going to go in there and say there wrong. In fact, if they want to continue posting, I hope they do.

Besides Heniz, most there's some nice dialogue up above with Jthoal and BigReg. I want to have a discourse like that.

Who knew a Han Solo movie would be treated like the fucking Bible.

228. "You've said "I'm not hyped" about a dozen times in here."
In response to Reply # 225


  

          

You've posted it after every news leak, every preview that gets released, and even some of the times other people say they're hyped.

It's clear you're not hyped. One response works. Many responses suggest you're either really invested in letting people know you're not hyped or you're mad.

Have I posted about it a dozen times? I guess I'm not keeping track. But you seem to be. Thanks?

Hopefully with the next big movie, I'll post enthusiastically about it multiple times? Be sure to keep an eye on it, okay?

I say it ends up doing $200M. Regardless I still don't think it tanks like so many of you been so sure of.

In response to Reply # 236


  

          

The tracking gets more accurate as it gets closer to opening weekend obviously. Once the press premiers and initial reviews come in we'll have a very good idea of how well it will do.

237. "Have people been saying they think it will tank?"
In response to Reply # 235


  

          

I've just seen people saying they aren't hype for it like they were for previous SW releases, but they'll still be there opening weekend.

For me, the first full trailer got me on board. Before that I was "eh", but this looks like it will be a fun adventure and I think it will do numbers.
