    There have actually been several issues with it. From Momoa being in jeans and not the typical costume, to the addition of his tattoos, to the lack of underwater time, etc.

    Ok well either way all I care about is that it sounds like a fun film that is going to go over well. Still all about giving Alden a chance.

    No rumors yet as to when we will see the next trailer? With less than three months to go, I assume it won't be too long. Maybe mid-April to coincide with the merchandise launch?

    I agree. There have been rumours about a BTS reel. Hopefully we’ll get that in March to tide us over to the trailer!

    By reddit: "According to Del Rey, Solo is placed in 14/11 BBY" but

    "Iger has previously said that Solo takes place when Han is between 18 and 24, putting it approximately between 12 and 6 BBY +/- a year on either side because we only have an approximate age for Han right now. I'm basing this off the assumption that he's 30 in ANH.

    My suspicion is that this Del Ray timeline fixes Solo at a particular point on their timeline like it does with Thrawn, but the film takes place over a number of years, also like Thrawn."

    "In the canon young reader book "The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy" it says Han is no more than 10 years older than Luke, making him around 29 in ANH as Luke is 19."

    I imagine the film begins on the lower end of that timeline given that Han would only be about 15 years old in 14 BBY. Although I guess there could be a younger actor playing him.

    I'm guessing the Han in the first teaser (in the Imperial recruiting office) is teen Han?

    I hope so because he looked very short in those scenes...

    Yeah, I think that's intentional. Also the hat is probably helping to hide the sell the illusion ( I think it's Alden, not another actor).

    I could buy Alden as 18. Fifteen not so much. Although I doubt that's gonna be the case anyway.

    I'd be shocked if they didn't do this. Especially if Glover's Lando steals the movie.

    I'm not sure why so many think that Disney is going to make a film on every OT character that's out there. Especially when they've shown that they pretty much want to move on and do their own thing away from the Skywalker Saga and it's players. If Donald Glover does indeed portray a good Lando, then that is absolutely great for Solo but I definitely don't expect the announcement that now Lando is getting his own anthology just because people are more willing to give Glover breathing room than they are AE.

    On the young Han age thing, Bob Iger said the film will follow Han from the age of "18-24"

    I hope he's 24 - 25 for most of the movie. AE is around that age (27, last time I checked), it would be more believable than him playing a 18 years old Han.

    I'm beginning to wonder if there might be three or four different time segments;

    18 - Corellia
    18/19 - Flight Academy
    21 - Mimban, then Kessel.
    24 - The Range, etc.

    First three would take up maybe 20-30% of the movie.

    Yeah I am guessing the time frame where is 18/close to will be the shortest one in the film.

    New poster is awesome. And the new international trailer is great too as it seems to 'meld' the two (Super Bowl teaser and longer one) together.

    It's gonna be cool to see Young Han, along with that swine Lando ;) Both together cause so much chaos.
