    I’m 100% with you. But I’m also 95% OK with the Anthology stuff being given long form treatment via multi-season TV shows instead. Not least as for me, the replay value of TV shows is much greater than for films, given the layers and depth of the storytelling. So if the plan is to put all the Anthology money and creative energy into TV, that might be the best thing to ever happen to Star Wars.

    That said, seeing Rogue One and Solo in the cinema was phenomenal. So I would like a couple more experiences like that.

    Han. But I have to say the Lando impression was spot on amazing.

    Glover portraying Lando is one of few things of the movie that I just consider great without any "but". I think he was perfect for the role.

    I'm not really counting previously-introduced characters like Han and Lando, as even though I love them and I think the new actors did a great job, it's a love that largely stems from the original trilogy.

    So with that said, my vote goes to Tobias Beckett. It was interesting to see what it was like for Han to have a mentor, and how it turned out different from Luke being mentored by Obi-Wan and Yoda. Also the twists with Tobias' character and how there's more to him than it initially seems; I thought he was the most layered character in the movie. I liked Qi'ra as well, for many of the same reasons, but I prefer Tobias just a little. If nothing else, Woody Harrelson's performance was just too delicious. ;)

    Agreed. Sometimes, casting decisions are so right that to consider anybody else would be madness. It's hard too when trying to portray a version of a character that is so established by another actor, and I always think the success of that is whether I believe that the performance is convincing me that I am seeing the younger (or older) character straight away. But Donald Glover is Lando!

    His line when they are escaping Kessel and he says "A spectacular way of killing us all, I'll give you that!" sounds just like Billy Dee Williams too.

    This is hard, because the movie featured some first-rate characters and performers. But who is my choice? Check out my icon.

    I think you mean Queen Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, Lady of Dragonstone, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.

    All of the characters were pretty great but I had to go with Dryden Vos - such a cool, original villain. I love the detail in how those strirations deepen in color depending on his anger.

    Ehrenreich pulls off a young Solo really well though, and I thought there was a lot of nuance from Clarke in her portrayal of Qi'Ra.

    Tobias Beckett was a great character, he should have his own adventure.
    Donald Glover's Lando was good, i especially liked that he makes references to Legends(Sharu).
    Indifferent to Ehrenreich's Han
    Dislike L3-37 and Qi'ra
