    What about a Trailer with The Oscars this Sunday? If I was Disney that Is what I would do or a BTS Sizzle Reel? I am surprised we are not hearing rumors on this? And then the Third Trailer In April...

    A couple of new shots yes, especially at the very beginning. Nothing major though.

    Anthony Breznican speculated that Enfys Nest was Han Solo’s father a few weeks ago on the Steele Wars podcast. A Spanish news site snapped pics of a location last year that they said was Han Solo’s “birth village” which had the character Enfys Nest on set...

    I really hope we never hear of or meet Solo’s parents. To me we’ve had enough family drama in the Saga and R1 and I want SOLO to focus on Solo becoming the best pilot in the galaxy. Beckett looks to be a fatherlike figure and to me that’s more than enough.

    No doubt, will be an introduction for both Han and in particular Qira. I suspect the speeder scene will be prior to movie title. Flight acedamy will follow imediately after.

    I'm wondering, as Qi'ra does not appear again until a lot later in Han's life, that this is where he gets his name. During the chase/race he does something really stupid, perhaps even injuring Qi'ra and she berates him for it. She leaves him saying he's going to be on his own for the rest of his life - "Change your ways Han, or forever fly solo."

    Then, turning away from a life of crime, he enlists and uses the name Solo (as he is probably known to the authorities under his real name and would be rejected.)

    Enfys Nest is a very SW name, IMO.

    Rogue one had a great Death Trooper popcorn bucket here in Brazil, hope there's something just as cool as that for Solo.

    I’m in two minds. They’re obviously very similar down to the colour palette and framing.

    On the other hand framing pictures within words is hardly an original concept. The person who made them might’ve taken inspiration or just liked the design a lot.

    Oh well. It’s happened. The guy will probably get an apology and the world will move on. I doubt they’d pull the posters. I still think they’re kickass.

    They are so blatantly plagiarized. The texture/colour scheme of the background, the letters, the picture within the letters...

    Usually I laugh at and dismiss these situations as blatant attention / money grabs - but in this case the artist is right.
