Re: Ron Howard Named New Director of HAN SOLO

Full trailer is out. And it looks EXACTLY like you'd expect it to: "cute" lines, techno Williams remix, lots of "look it's ______" slo-mo shots, dizzying CGI effects (that look like every other film), and of course, a Cantina/Casino sequence for good measure. And also a very drab visual scheme, seemingly, that looks more ROGUE ONE than all the prior series entries.

I truly wonder if Ford and Miller's movie was going to be more "fun" and ended up being too humorous/irreverent -- this looks pretty glum even with the "comedy" interjected.

Also, I guess I had forgotten Disney is releasing this in May -- 2 weeks after THE AVENGERS. Apparently they want to book up every screen for the summer until 4th of July weekend with these two products in theaters simultaneously.

According to Jalopnik, the landspeeder Han is seen driving around is based on the Ford Falcon. Which, if true, is a pretty awesome easter egg.

Entertainment Weekly article has some interesting info on Lord and Miller getting axed. Too much improv, went off script, took too long, were falling behind schedule, etc.

The trailer looked exactly like the trailer from ROGUE ONE - it looks incredibly uninspired to me. In all honesty, I have lost any passion I had for the STAR WARS universe. Aside from the scores, I have reached a point where I just don't care anymore. I still have not seen the newer STAR WARS film and probably won't until it comes out on DVD (and my friend at work will let me borrow it, since I don't see myself spending any money on it). I do hope that those who do go see it enjoy it!
