Don't know about everyone else, but it looks GREAT.

Looks cool.  This still could have worked with a bunch of characters not named Han Solo, Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian.

Agreed it coulda worked without being Han n co but Iím liking the trailers and the era...  just generally seems fun.  Nothing super serious or anything, just fun set in Star Wars.

The establishing shots were pretty interesting.  I took that as Corellia at night.  And that shot where the camera tilts up to show a Star Destroyer under construction?  Very cool!

The boots on the Range Troopers are making a whole lot more sense, too.  They're in the scene on the Conveyex, and the theories about the boots being some means of them being able to magnetically adhere to the Conveyex seem like they might be on point.

This also seems to be the first we've seen of Paul Bettany's character, Dryden Vos.  And we actually got to hear L3-L9 speak, too. 

The scenes with Han and Chewie were good stuff.  Especially the part in the Falcon where Han says "You're 190 years old?"  And was there a shot of Chewie with Mala in there, too?

I know there can be a lot of negativity towards this movie, but I think it looks great so far and I can't wait. Hopefully it is a good time.

I wonder what cameos we're going to get in this movie.

Kinda looked like L3-L9 had Dr. Evazan in a choke hold.  Is that going to be the running easter egg bit where we get Ponda Baba and Evazan in all of the anthology movies?

Last year, there were a LOT of rumors that Diego Luna filmed a Cassian cameo for Solo...   Also, I don't know if it's intentional or just a re-use of costumes, but eagle eyed folks have already started noticing some Rogue One/Jedha characters/costumes in Solo.

What is the supposed timeline for this movie?  5 years before ANH?

According to Del Ray's LFL-endorsed timeline, it takes place between the Tarkin book (14 years before ANH) and the Thrawn book (11 years before ANH).

In the early days of Solo announcements, Bob Iger had said the movie would cover a range of years, from 18-24 of Han's life.  Not sure how much of that will stick in the final movie they actually made but it kinda matches up if you say Han was 30-35 during ANH.

I've got a bit of a theory about Han's story arc based on some toy reveals...

Very likely the movie will start with Han on Corellia, and Q'ira is something of a running buddy at that time.  And I'm fairly certain that it is there that he attempts to join the Imperial military (teaser trailer).  He says in the teaser that he's "going to be a pilot.  The best in the galaxy".  But he also talks about getting bounced out of the academy for having a mind of his own.  From there?  I'm thinking that following his departure from flight training he becomes a grunt, aka a Mudtrooper on Mimban.  It's there that I think he links up with Chewbacca.  Where things go from immediately from there is beyond me...

Just watching the trailer again, and although it is only a quick glimpse (and the Denny's commercial 😉), but I really like the looks of many of the aliens seen here. Hope we see figures of many of those.

I just watched the newest Forces of Destiny which features Leia, Chewbacca and R2.  And the episode revolves around Leia meeting Maz Kanata for the first time.  The general topic leaves me wondering...  Will Maz have a part to play in SOLO?

I just hope it makes a lot more sense than it did in TLJ where she is on a video conference with a jet pack in a labor dispute blasting away with her blaster...
