    I will be incredibly shocked if it doesn't get pushed back - even now.

    If TLJ is great, then Solo tailgating with TLJ could be a smart move, I guess?

    Was anyone else excited about the notion of seeing Han's early days in the Imperial Navy (which it sounds as though we definitely are NOT getting)? And having said that, I've thrown that out to a few people (the "Imperial Navy" bit), and they've acted like I was nuts. I could've sworn that was canon. Or is it one of those revisionist-history things like they did with Grievous (Labyrinth of Evil isn't canon anymore, right? Or is it? Oy vey).

    Nothing from the old EU is canon anymore, and the new canon has yet to mention him being in the Imperial Navy.

    Until we see a trailer, let's let speculation rest about Han's possible Imperial ties. I mean, Han did know that Star Destroyers have procedure of "dumping their garbage before going into hyperspace." I always thought he had some insider know-how.
    We'd have known about a changed release date by now. Huge companies like Disney think way ahead. Frankly, I wouldn't rule out seeing a "Solo" trailer before The Last Jedi!

    That could also be explained as smuggler experience.

    I think an Imperial trained Han would have sounded a lot more convincing on the Death Star than "We're fine, how are you?"

    It's going to stink waiting all the way until December 2019 now after Solo drops in May 2018. Never have had much hopes for the Solo film, but I'm sure it will at least be good.

    Yeah - I wish I could be sure of that. I'm not. I mean, I didn't like Rogue One, and that was a story I really wanted to see. When Han Met Chewie is a story I could have passed over my entire life, and a really head-scratching choice considering it won't be Harrison reprising the role. I mean, obviously I'll see it, but it doesn't enter my top five most anticipated movies for 2018.

    I guess I'm the opposite in a couple respects...for one, ever since I was a little kid, I remembered reading The Wookiee Storybook(ie) and seeing a sort of backstory to Han and Chewie's relationship, I've wanted to know more. I believe the lizard slave traders would eventually be reimagined as Trandoshans in The Clone Wars?

    Plus...ranking Rogue One below both the Ewoks and Holiday Special? Yeesh! I guess you didn't like it as much as I did LOL.

    I need more Star Wars, and another countdown...but where's our trailer? 150 days out and no trailer.

    I don't want to link to anything since I'm not sure if it would technically be a spoiler, but a certain Star Wars toy site has posted some Lego sets from the movie. Can I post that? I guess we'll find out. :)

    I'm curious to see what you all have to say about certain..."irregularities". :)

    Leaked Lego images and links to such are prohibited on the boards, for reasons beyond "spoilers".

    I still think the Imperial Cadet, sees Wookie being abused = Han and Chewie origin may be in there. As for the movie itself, I'm totally okay with having Lawrence Kasadan write Han's official backstory than have it randomly pop up in a guidebook or something years later so that's probably why I'm down with this flick (and more Han and Chewie).

    But no Harrison Ford .... is a pretty big leap. But I can deal. Mostly. Probably.

    But I'm most happy it's barely 5 months until the next Star Wars film, yay!

    Calling Superbowl trailer, easy.

    Waiting to release the trailer until less than 5 months before release of the film????? IS THIS DISNEY?????

    Edit: Just kidding, I know they ran into production problems and all, but it’s still interesting how they are choosing to hold off on everything.

    At this point, I have to assume they think the movie is gonna bomb. Forget the trailer - we don't even have a poster. I mean, my expectations were already incredibly low - I don't know how much lower they can go!

    Well there's that *ahem* poster that was leaked a couple weeks ago? I liked what I saw there.

    Am I worried? These are the same folks that brought us The Last Jedi, and I liked that one a lot. Yeah, I know they also brought us Rogue One, but I liked that one a lot too!
