    So, the first day of shooting on the untitled Han Solo film is today apparently.

    This picture was tweeted by Chris Miller, one of the directors, with the caption "Han First Shot".

    I have a hard time getting excited for this film - I'm not crazy about the idea of recasting Han and Lando (and possibly other characters as well). But we'll see.

    In the larger version of this picture the title says "Star Wars Red Cup". I'm pretty sure that's not the title of the film :p

    It is without a doubt the most perfect production name they could have come up with...

    I would totally watch a movie about a maverick Red Solo Cup flying around the vacuum of space. Not. :p

    I wonder what the first shot was. Probably not Greedo.

    Really shocking that Chris Miller and Phil Lord were fired.

    I guess they weren't following Kasdan's script. I mean, he's the Han Solo expert as far as I'm concerned.

    Ron Howard now directing. Hopefully he can make a cohesive film.

    Han Solo's back story should be left alone. Keep his origins shrouded in mystery. It's far more compelling than showing him becoming the Han Solo we love in the OT.

    Well, imho, origin stories almost never work, are either retconning a character or simply uninteresting. Explaining, for example, how Vader became Vader lessens his dark and devellish appearance. He is becoming much less menacing when we get to know his path of life.
    The same applies to charachters like Hannibal Lector and others.

    I see where you're coming from, but in the case of Vader, I disagree. I know it's cool to hate on the prequels, so I don't want to start a bashing thread, but the prequels make his character so much better. Watch RotS and RotJ back to back for some serious feels.

    I'll be honest. I'm not excited for this movie. I hope it will be good of course. But I just can't get excited for it.

    Well, they did practically give the title away in January.
