    I know you did, I genuinely laughed at your post. What costumes does he wear? How do we know? Lego leaks?

    :D Yep Lego leaks and BTS spy video. He wears a black costume with long grey coat and a double holster for blasters as well as an Imperial Officer disguise (Mimban version).

    Love seeing him in action on the top of the train thing in the trailer!

    I like his look too. Basically, I like everybody's costume design.

    Woody seems so great for a Han flick!

    Harrelson's been on a roll lately, so his character is the one I'm most looking forward to seeing.

    Anthony Brenzican tweeted today that Beckett is similar to Magwitch from Great Expectations, so I'm picturing a criminal with a soft spot for Han who takes him under his wing but also leads him down a dark path.

    He looks so military. Makes sense to me that Beckett is an Imperial Officer on Mimban when Han is posted there. What they do ends up with them both serving hard labour on Kessel.

    If they do end up on Kessel early on, how would the Kessel Run fit into the movie later, with the whole crew in the Falcon?

    Easy... they go back. If the score they're after involves stealing the valuable spice from Kessel it makes sense that Dryden Vos or whoever is financing it hires criminals who have actually been there and escaped.

    Makes sense. Maybe Woody got himself locked up there to get a good look of the place before planning the heist. I wonder how the train sequence fits in too, they seem to be carrying bombs so maybe they're needed for the Kessel business...

    Yeah, I think it definitely ties in to whatever big score they're going after (the train itself seems too small scale to be the final heist.) They need something on that train. I also think it's sort of an initiation for Han. To test whether he has what it takes to take down the real prize.

    Could the big score perhaps be the Death Star's keystone Kaiburr crystal? Maybe we'll see the temple of Pomojema on Mimban.

    If Solo gives us nothing else, Woody H in a SW movie seems an undoubted positive.

    My guess is the big score is the black vest Han is seen wearing in ANH.
