    I think the Star Wars Show is supposed to come back today so hopefully we’ll get some kind of news.

    "They", as in Lucasfilm, didn't actually say that as far as I know; it was simply reported. And all that was reported was the use of an acting coach, which isn't the same thing as giving acting lessons to Alden. Take a look at any of his previous films; the dude knows how to act. It's been generally assumed the coach was to help him balance his take on Harrison Ford's performance with his own version of the character, which is just a good move as it means we won't be getting a slavish copy of Ford nor something completely divorced from what's come before.

    Don't forget about Count Dooki's numbah one fanboy here. I'll sing his praises to the ends of Serenno and beyond.

    so if everyone obsessed with asoka or the porgs - it's okay.
    but god forbid to like any aliens that don't meet a "standard type of beauty".

    okay.

    See, I read it as "thank god we still have people who love the oddballs," not as a "god forbid you love those oddballs" condemnation.

    And now I'm imagining the fist encounter of Han and the Directors from The Dark Nest in Solo....

    Edit: Bah, wrong thread! Sorry y'all.

    I'm also certain Barriss meant that in this positive way, cookey, and not as ridicule. Hugs from a Tognath fan. :)

    Distinction between Ehrenrich NOT being Harrison Ford and him NOT being Han Solo though.

    Can you confirm he doesn't act like Han Solo?

    No I can't, the original post was referring to being worried people would say that after watching the movie.

    So the dice have to be a plot point in Solo: A Star Wars story, right? It was a bit of foreshadowing in Last Jedi of what to come (or a callback in Chronological order). Also they hinted at something like that heavily on The Star Wars Show this week.

    Hence, in the future, in my viewing order I plan to put Solo right after Force Awakens. My preferred order is really odd - R1, Ep IV, V, I, II, III, VI, VII, Solo, VIII. But Solo after TFA cuz Han dies so then we get a bit of flashback to Han's beginnings - sort of a flashback memorial for Solo, (very probable) set up for the dice, and lets the Luke and Rey cliffhanger breathe.

    I don't mind story chronology either but it gets really heavy on pre-ANH stuff. But on the flipside if you start at Ep. 1 and all the way to TLJ (Which is what I did a few months ago) you get a bit of an in-universe history, it's like reading the Bible or something. But I am a fan of flashbacks and disjointed viewing order, like how we've gotten them but a bit more nicely thematically flowing into each toher.

    Well, I mean, I think the SWS pointed out that while it's narratively kind of common sense that they will be in SOLO, they were placed in TLJ mainly because in the version of TFA Rian Johnson was working from, they were there, so it made sense as a call-back for a present and existing prop, and as a great pre-existing symbolic token available to Luke to use in an emotional moment.

    The Titan book that was listed in amazon as "Solo: a Star Wars Story Official Collector's Edition" with a may release now have it's name (at least as listed on amazon) changed to "Star Wars Special" and with a new release date: June 12.
    I wonder if that means anything...

    I'd probably do I, II, R1, IV, V, III, VI. That way you get appreciation of who Bail is for his scenes in R1, and you get III as the set-up to VI. It's still a bit clumsy and really the perfect order would be to watch IV twice: IV, I, V, II, III, R1, IV, V, VI, VII, Solo, VIII.

    I often wonder about the deals artists reached regarding these versions of their songs. I wonder if Jason Derulo even listened to "Han Solo."
