    The heist on the train. Thandie Newton and bad girl, Dryden Vos (who looks almost too cool to even comprehend), Tobias Beckett (GREAT name) also a bad guy (or is he). The Millennium Falcon looking FANTASTIC! The dark tones, the costumes.......

    I have to bring myself back down to earth because of course, all the brilliant looks, description, story tidbits, trailers etc can look great, but the STORY and character development is the most important thing.........but, what Ive seen so far......im expecting one helluva ride here.

    I'm so excited I just ordered the 1700 piece Lego Tie Fighter. I have the X-Wing (which is fabulous) but I really have the SW bug right now (thanks Solo!). I will also be ordering Slave One, the Snowspeeder and the 9000 piece Millennium Falcon too - that's $1500..haha.

    I was thrilled how good RO was, and Solo is shaping up to be similar. Oh, and yes, I love TFA and TLJ also. And I'm 49 in March! [face_laugh]

    And being positive is healthy. It makes yourself and everyone else around you happy, this is the entertainment business, and what its all about.

    I Love Disney. In fact I might just go all out and book a family holiday vacation at Disney World!

    That's all I wanted to say, carry on.

    I'm with you there, buddy. [face_laugh]

    It's a very "groovy" trailer, I love how the sounds of Han pushing and turning the switches are like a countdown to the beggining of the trailer and the music.

    I think this movie will make people happy. After some of the depression and anger because of TLJ we need a fun adventure to go on. Who better to go on said adventure with than everyones favourite scoundrel?

    Yeah, I'm slightly addicted to it, especially the first twenty-ish seconds and the rhythm of the whole thing. My only gripe is that Qi'Ra's line (assuming it's one line) is a little awkwardly spaced out.

    One of the new EW articles says "he falls head over heels" for her but doesn't give away anything about her fate of course.

    I'm going to predict that Qira was an old flame of Han and he runs into her while doing this job or getting the job because she's married to the gangster. Or maybe she's the daughter of the gangster.

    They grew up together on the back streets of Corellia, she's in the passenger seat in the landspeeder race/chase. He meets up with her again in 'part two' of the movie.

    My guess is that every character except Chewie, and maybe Lando, is going to betray Han at some point in the movie. Including Qi,ra, who won't die in the movie.

    Still not a fan of the music, and I'm hoping that what we heard in the trailer is not a sampling of the kind we'll hear in the movie. Too modern. Something that might fit in an Indiana Jones flick would be nice - and John Williams is just the person to deliver. That said, I didn't like the music of Rogue One at first, and the soundtrack is now in my top 10.

    That would explain Han’s attitude at the beginning of ANH.

    This is why I am really looking forward to this movie. I want to see how Han started out vs how he ended up the character we meet later. What happened to him?

    I really like the music in the trailer. I doubt it but I hope they incorporate some of it into the soundtrack. Good driving to work music.

    Emilia Clarke's interview in EW very strong implies she's going to backstab Han and make him the cynical guy we see in ANH. My guess is that the heist goes wrong when Qi'Ra backstabs Han and the rest of the crew to sell them out to a higher bidder, Lando thinks that Han is involved in the selling out because he's romantically involved with Qi'Ra and Han doesn't have a chance to explain before they separate or Lando doesn't believe him. That's the last time they see each other before ESB.

    Seems feasible and would fit Han.

    Ah, but remember that Lando was just play acting in that scene in TESB. Just messing with Han.

    Since we're getting a Han Solo film i'm guessing we will get a Luke Skywalker film and even a Leia film in the future. Anyone agree?

    I doubt it. What more could you do with Luke? Or Leia for that matter. Luke as a farmer? Leia at the academy?
