Not sure we need a Han Solo movie, but Lord and Miller are great.
But I'll watch it anyway.
(not seen it)
should make a film about salacious crumb
that it's going to painstakingly take in all the things we hear about in the original trilogy/surrounding literature: rescuing Chewie, winning the Falcon off Lando, doing the Kessel Run, dumping Jabba's cargo. And it'll do it all with a bawdy wink to the audience of "Yeah, we're so clever, eh?"
That said, I'm one of those rare people who mostly enjoyed the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles so it might be okay, but that was a TV show and we knew next to nothing about his previous life so there was all to play for in the stories.
and those both sounded awful on paper, so I guess they could make this work. They might have their hands tied like you say though with having to tick a whole load of plot point boxes.
Start it with him losing the Falcon to Solo and then you get to go wild with a really open plot.
wouldn't mind Chris Pratt but he's already done GoG and he'll be mega overexposed by the time this happens, I guess
I'll seriously consider boycotting the film...
thought it was fucking excellent tbh
Which will probably be more interesting as a concept too.
hope it's really rubbish and all the geeks start crying
geeks love really terrible stuff
look at Dr. Who FFS
to make sure that Hannibal gets cancelled as revenge for your attitude. See how it is when you mess with geeks?
like the guy han kills in that bar. Go into his childhood and teenage years in films 1 and 2, then he marries and has kids in 3 before being murdered by Han Solo in the final act.
Credits roll as a picture of his young family and pregnant wife falls from his clasped hand, blood slowly soaking it until it is distorted and warped.
Cut to Han Solo in the Millenium Falcon crushing a beer can on his forehead and yee-hawing
Text scrolls up the screen:
"But Solo will be back, in 'Flyin' Solo: Hans off my Falcon'
Music rolls: Der ner ner naaaaa na naaauuughh NAER NAR. Der ner ner naaaaaaaeeeeEEERRRR....." (Han Solo theme)
'Why George,? Why?!" moment...
"Cut to Han Solo in the Millenium Falcon crushing a beer can on his forehead and yee-hawing"
blood slowly soaking it until it is distorted and warped."
the credits music is a haunting rendition of the Cantina Song
A lot of how good this'll be will come down to the casting - if they pick a duffer then they've lost half the battle.
Also the guys that did Lego and Jump Street?! I'm willing to keep an open mind but that resume doesn't inspire me.
I'd be game for seeing Han win the Falcon or buddying up with Chewie but as long as it isn't done kinda 'tongue-in-cheek'. I think it'll be too much to squeeze into a 2 hour film if they try and plot every beat mentioned by Theo above; hopefully they'll pick: Deserting the Empire - helping Chewie - winning Falcon - Kessel Run.
