    How/why would that fit into a movie about Han Solo’s early years?

    Have Chewie talk to an old man in robes merely shrugging when Han asks him telling him he's a friend of a friend.

    Han & Chewie go on a treasure hunt, but all they dig up is an old fossil. :D

    Old Marvel Comics Star Wars #81. The one where Boba Fett was burped out of the sarlacc. Classic comic, in a series that could and should have been handled by someone who really cared about writing for it.

    First thing I thought of when I was watching TLJ for the first time. It was retconned back then when it was revealed in a Star Wars Role Playing game supplement that Han had won the Falcon in a sabacc match against Lando, which is supposed to be a card game and not rolling dice. Whatever. It was just another reason that the old EU was too contradictory and had to go. I'm guessing RJ liked the dice backstory better than the sabacc?

    Apparently he won it in a game of "Corellian Spike," a variant of Sabacc that used dice. Regardless, the dice allow for a tangible connection to Han Solo's memory, they're visually evocative, and nostalgically they were there in the beginning (even if they were barely noticeable).

    I want to see a movie without at retconned Falcon.
    I'm still hoping that toy is just a marketing ploy and not what the Falcon looks like in the movie.
    And I don't want to hear any nonsense about Han making a bunch of modifications himself.

    Aside from Vader, the Falcon is my favorite thing about Star Wars.
    If see a hint of that silly "Falcon" in a trailer or commercial...I'm out.
    That would be like having someone other than JEJ do the voice of Vader in a movie....just wrong.

    To be honest, I think there is less retconning of the MF than most people are assuming. I believe the filled in area between the front mandibles is actually a detachable cargo module that can be "jettisoned at the first sign of an imperial cruiser" rather than a major structural redesign of the hull. And the colour scheme is just a lick of paint. Even the dish is asumedly adjustable , and we know that it had been changed from the original. The changes are just enough to keep the merchandising people happy.

    I'm sure we will see Han somehow burn the paint off and get the dish stuck in the 'up' position. What is even more concerning is the fact that Han did not once, during his entire ownership, clean inside the ship.

    It's the reason why his relationship failed.

    My biggest hopes for this film are that it's a good fun adventure film, the characters are true to their original portrayals (or at the very least very close) and that the aesthetic of the film fits right alongside RO and the OT!

    Hayden voiced Darth Vader in ROTS. Did you have a problem with that?

    Han made a bunch of modifications, himself.

    I want a scene where they are doing the Kessel run. Every so often the camera cuts to the Falcon's odometer. (Itself pulled from a 1980s Ford Crown Victoria). Lando promises that if he can pull the run off in less than 12 parsecs, the ship is his. Otherwise he get's all the profits. The route is littered with asteroids and Han is doing some fine piloting. He skims close to one rock, says "That was too close!" and the odo shows 3 parsecs. For each twist and turn the odo keeps climbing. The overall goal is to deliver contraband, and they are being chased by TIE fighters based off a Star Destroyer. Lando's firing away on the turret gun. He blows up a TIE and the odo flashes to show 10. Lando yells " If I were a gambling man I'd put odds on me walking away with a pile of credits!" Han fly's through a gap. "NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS" ,and the falcon scrapes on the walls, knocking off that stupid cargo container on the front of the ship. The TIES crash trying to do the same. When emerging from the other side, he finishes the run. In doing so, he shaves it down to 11.9 parsecs.

    Lando then hands him the keys, which have the dice and a rabbit's foot. "Well, you won her fair and square!"

    Spin it any way you want, that retconned Falcon is awful in the extreme.
    Will the real Falcon please fly by... :falcon: ...oh, there it is.
    Now, let's see the "Kessel Run" version... [face_pig]

    I hope we get to see Han Solo flying a different ship before he upgrades to the Falcon.

    I'm sure we will, considering the Falcon will belong to Lando at first.

    A sequence where Boba Fett gets to strut his stuff. We haven't had anything flashy in the films yet. Imagine a scene ripped straight out of the Battlefront games.

    Yeah, he clearly doesn’t know what retconned means. By his definition the entire PT is a retcon.
