Jim Henson's Star Wars Babies!
What this movie needs is a scene where Han opens up a closet door and there's random stock footage playing inside.
It's going to be fine.
All the movies were fine.
It's a big dumb crowd pleaser and audiences have lower standards than ever.
It's going to be fine.

5 for the description
The number 5 is a FAKE GEEK GIRL.
If old opie managed to give it his best then I won’t mind seeing it. His last movie involving Lucas film material (willow) was just fine in my book.
TLJ taught me to not care about Star Wars because it’s clear we are getting diminishing returns as each new one roles out.
It's gonna suck and I'm gonna watch it.
You're why we can't have nice things.
I never said I was going to pay for it.
If you think of Stah Wahs movies as not real movies, like how superhero movies aren't, then this is basically a more credible Guardians of the Galaxy.
From that point of view, it will probably be watchable enough.
Oh my God. Groot was their Chewbacca. He was their Chewbacca the whole time and I didn't notice until now. You bastards.
I still think that Guardians of the Galaxy is the best Star Wars movie.

Needs more Lando.
Lando needs his own movie.
I'll grant it an extra star if Donald Glover starts endorsing malt liquor.
Fucking Piett would have saved the Empire. SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MOFF
Oh man! I'm now have hype for a movie that will never be made.
"A reasonable budget, a reasonable death laser, a reasonable Empire- Piett for Emperor"
Maggs, I think the mystique behind Piett was that the out of the vast majority of Imperial leadership in the films we were exposed to, we most often had a choice between cartoonishly incompetent fucks, or cartoonishly villainous fucks.
Someone like Piett explains how the Empire could continue functioning in the first place. Ultimately somebody has to want to follow SOME of these guys.
As uninspired as this looks, in a "live action trailer for a minor-release videogame" sort of way, it still sounds better than the original Lord and Miller version of Solo I heard about, to give one idea about the way they went, supposedly in their trailer for their nearly completed movie they had Alden Ehrenreich stare straight into the camera, wiggle his eyebrows, and say "Solo, Han Solo", and they actually had the James Bond theme play, no doubt costing a bit to use it. It was buried the dailies.
Just, I know these are rumors but from what I heard part of some peoples' problem with the nearly finished original version was that Ehernreich was playing his role not at all like Han Solo and more like Ace Ventura.
Yeah that sounds like a good new direction for these.
I'm sure this will have all the trademark fun and verve of Ron Howard's last five movies (Hanks vs Reason III, Moby Thor, and Speed Thor) with the intense focus of the eleventy other TV and film projects in development he's got going in parallel.
He's this generation's John Frankenheimer -- early promise eclipsed by mercenary pablum -- with better comic sensibilities.
I'm seeing this to stare at all the expensively realized concept art while counting off how much of Han's OT dialog is given thorough exposition/call-backs. Bonus points if they tie in TFA. If it's anything more, then yay.
Memorial Day the Movie looks a bit cheesy.

Looks better than The Last Jedi but not as good as Rouge One.
The thing I keep coming back to with these side stories is that Disney could have made these movies about ANYTHING!!! Instead they're all about people and events we already know about. We already know what we need to know about Han, smuggler with a heart of gold, that's all that there really is to him.
"Sure you first met Han Solo when he was thirty five, but what was he like when he was...in his twenties?" - Nobody ever.
Not as good as Rogue One? Space Jesus Christ that is faint praise if I ever heard it. What a ragged pile that movie was. The very idea that what the Star Wars franchise needed was MORE prequels is fucking ludicrous.
Rogue one should have been the Dark Forces movie dammit.
The data tower really did look a lot like the puzzle from level four of the first Dark Forces.
Jyn Erso...Jan Ors. Really not that much of a stretch and vanilla sidekick/love interest man could've totally been Kyle Katarn. They even could have had that whole "first Asian character in Star Wars" thing 1 1/2 years earlier.
They could still kill em in the end, and just say the Jedi Knight series ain't canon.
For me the fact that they all die was one of the more problematic parts of the movie from a pure star was aspect. I know they wanted to make a movie about the life of an average solderer in the galactic civil war but if they all died WHO IS TELLING THE STORY??? I have the same problem with the Force Awakens, who tolled Rey about the galactic civil? Yeah, she lives on a planet covered in wrecked star ships but who provided the context?

What I want to know is how the main actor got past the casting people. Disney hired an acting coach for his because apparently his ability act is so atrocious. How do you make a mistake that big when casting the main lead? I'll go see it just to gauge his performance for myself, but Red Letter Media probably already came up with a better plotline.
Maybe Ron Howard agreed and the reshoots were to implement RLMs ideas...
In seriousness though, the more info that's coming out the more it sounds like they pushed the "act like Harrison Ford" part too hard and the actors performance ended up coming off as parody. Some said it was Jim Carreyesque. To me, that makes more sense for the acting coach thing, basically they needed to tone down the imitation but still fit the character.
Yeah, I'll see it. But in order to enjoy it, I'll try to pretend it's not about Han Solo, but just a non-Star Wars, generic space-pirate-guy movie.
(I have nostalgia issues.)
Just imagine it's the backstory for Peter Strauss' character from spacehunter
Anyway, I will forever mention that I still want a TIE Figther movie adaptation directed by Paul Verhoeven. Star Wars is a sexless bore and this series needs more imperial shower scenes with full frontal male and female nudity. Verhoeven is the right man for this job.
Well, it wasn't a sexless bore until the new movies. It's all hugs all the time, because if she doesn't sign and triplicate she says yes, it is unwelcome!
Seriously, Han Solo would come off as some sort of predator in today's environment.
I sets em up, and meme knocks em down.
