Someone upthread mentioned the Infantino-era Marvel issues, and I think that's another reason I'm so easy-going on this particular flick - the different types of genre adventures the Marvel series had before the whole dreary EU got locked down starting with Dark Horse and the off-model, distinct stylist approach of each artist.  Those Marvel SW comics are just as formative and important to me as the original movies, and this feels like one of those brought to life.

Yup, that's gonna be my mindset going in, Dave!

My son is excited to see it, and I'm enjoying the vibe of the TV spots more & more.  Not looking to be blown away, just hoping for a good time (even if I still feel a Han Solo prequel story is a bad idea!).

I see that the Millennium Falcon is not quite the shape
we saw in A New Hope, which brings me to a point that
has bugged me since 1977...having the cockpit to one
side must make it a bitch to pilot! It would be like
driving your car with a partition down the middle of the
car extending to the tip of the bonnet(hood)!

I can't get excited about SOLO.  The one character in the SW universe I don't think needs an origin story is Han.  I'm not interested in seeing the Kessel Run or obtaining the Falcon or him meeting Chewie and Lando for the first time.  The one character I think should retain some mystery is Han.  Doesn't mean the film won't make a bajillion dollars, but I'll be hard-pressed to pay for a ticket.

My thoughts exactly. I'll (maybe) catch this film when it reaches cable.

-C!

A mini-tour of Lando's Falcon when it was all nice and new.
I enjoyed this more than I should have.

My problem with going in expecting it to be similar to the Marvel Star Wars comic is that I'm going to be disappointed if Crimson Jack and Jolli aren't in it...

Unfortunately, Chewie being a pilot in a prequel ranks right down there with R2-D2 suddenly being able to fly.

All I kept noticing in that tour was how much stuff wasn't fastened down!

I'm not sure I follow this... Chewie isn't supposed to be a pilot before the events of the first STAR WARS (1977)?

I saw Rogue One in the theatres and was pretty happy with it. I'd like to see if they can repeat that level of quality in Solo. I skipped watching The Last Jedi. I probably wouldn't watch Solo if I was one of the many older fans turned off by the latest installment of the sequels.
