    I wouldn't call that a fourth-wall breaking moment. It's not like he winked at the camera or anything.

    Or Stand By Me. The movie ends with Han sitting at his electronic wordscreen, looking out the window, watching young Ben very aggressively swordfighting with a friend in the front yard. Han mutters to himself: "Why do I get the feeling you'll be the death of me?"

    Definitely a Space Western vibe. A heist film. An action/adventure film. What else did you guys notice?

    That's definitely what I'm seeing but I'm not completely sold on it yet. Not enough familiarity. (it's just a minute long trailer though so I'm not saying there won't be any)

    Not the Lando moment, no, but I think Threepio's "How typical" to the camera in TESB is the closest SW has ever come to breaking the fourth wall.

    Yeah, I see action/adventure, which is always safe but good.

    With reports that Lord & Miller's version was a comedy, I'm glad Ron Howard was brought in to save this film.

    I'm still expecting lots of comedy, and it looks like Qi'ra is going to be a romantic interest.

    It seems like it will feel like some sort of heist movie.

    Ron Howard - "Like an Old Western".

    We got scoundrels, sidekicks and trains with those scoundrels and sidekicks on said train.

    Think we will get some kind of train robbery?

    Old Western with train robberies.

    Definitely a heist film, tone of an action/comedy, with all the irreverence of Han himself.

    Seems to me (based on the trailer) it resembles a tone similar to Rogue One. Still definitely Star Wars, but with a bit more grittiness and rough edges to it-just perhaps (reportedly) more humor. All of which I would be just fine with.
