Solo: A Star Wars Story: A Trailer

So yesterday during the Superb Owl, Lucasfilm debuted a teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story. After feeling the pressure from the Cloverfield guys who don't even release trailers anymore they just beam the movies directly into your brain without warning, they went ahead and released a full length trailer. It looks fine, I'd probably be a bit more excited about it if the guy playing Han looking even the least big like Harrison Ford, or better yet showed just a fraction of his charm.

I'm sure a lot will be made about the rocky road of filming this movie; Rewrites, fired directors, additional scenes filmed after wrap. Honestly I don't really care how the sausage was made. Rogue One supposedly had all sorts of problems and it turned out fantastic. Personally, I'm more interested/concerned with how this movie is going to fit into existing Star Wars cannon.

For an obsessive nerd like me, one of the worst sins of the prequels is that they contradicted the original trilogy at every turn. Rogue One was able to avoid most of those pitfalls by having a new cast of characters and then killing them all off. They put in some hard work to make sure Rogue One transitioned into A New Hope seamlessly. That's going to be a lot harder with a prequel that's all about a couple of the main characters.

For whatever it's worth there probably isn't a bad review on earth that's going to keep me from seeing this in the theater, I'm definitely not going to be dissuaded by a luke warm trailer. Heck, the movie will probably be worth it just for the speeder chase we see a couple of seconds of. As bad as Episode I is you can always put on the pod race and I'm still happy as a clam.
