    Okay, I will give the movie some credit, the newest trailer was the best one yet in that the guy playing Han at times does feel like Han. My only problem with the new trailer was the generic action movie music. It wasn't necessarily awesome and is not quite as cool as the trailers for any of the other new wave Star Flicks, but it didn't make the movie look boring.

    The actual main theme that they play over the title drop is strange because it sounds so goofy, albeit not in a bad way...but it does not look like it fits the visual style or tone at all. Seems like it belongs in a campier movie...which to be honest, I wouldn't mind seeing after these darker and edgier flicks.

    The usual star wars type of theme wouldn't fit here either.

    I didn't have a problem with the theme since most of the scenes in the trailer had a comedic tone.

    This movie feels like a Superhero movie that just so happen to be set in Star Wars universe btw.

    Not disagreeing with you there, but I feel like that rendition doesn't fit. Admittedly, it's kind of hard to judge at this point as the movie might be more of a comedy than we realize...or it might be a casualty of the behind-the-scenes problems. It's also possible that the trailers simply don't represent the tone of the movie.

    Sounds like he's kind of got the Harrison Ford voice. But they might have just used the takes where it sounds good for the trailer, so I dunno.

    I liked that bickering with Chewie.

    I know that they're really trying to sell Donald Glover's charisma and sex appeal as Landa, but am I the only one who thought the

    "I heard a story about you and I was wondering if it was true."
    "Everything you've heard about me is...true."

    was incredibly silly because what if Han follows that up with "So you are in a carnal relationship with Jaba the Hut?". That type of answer is almost designed to set you up for humiliation.

    I remember hearing that when shooting Godfather II, Robert De Niro set himself to playing "a young Vito Corleone, not a young Marlon Brando". Because he thought the latter would come across as parody.

    Here what's-his-name also has to decide if he's going for a young Han Solo or a young Harrison Ford. Voice indicates the latter.

    They're kinda one in the same though. Han may as well be Harrison's alter ego.

    Trailer looks good, but I don't trust Disney. They are hiding something.

    These people literally live with their heads shoved up their own asses.

    Trailer looks like dogshit and anything but starwars in it. Obviously they are gonna try to hide it, they know it's crap so they are bracing for a flop "as publicly stated in their report" and are hoping to reduce the losses as much as they can.

    I have seen better art in Dark horse comics.
    Vuffi Raa right now.



    Garris Shrike is a way better Star Warsy name.
