Do you think C-3PO and R2-D2 will be in this movie? They have been in every other movie so far. Isn't that the rule?

They have no place here. Them showing up in "Rogue One" for no reason other than "because..." seriously took me out of the movie.

If they feel they must do it, I hope it is tongue-in-cheek, like in silhouette that is ultimately revealed to be a guy in a gold lame' jumpsuit hauling around a white and blue vaccuum cleaner.

I have to agree regarding the droids appearing in ROGUE ONE.  It was certainly plausible given the timeline and mission, but it did come across as if they were shoehorned into the film.  I think it probably could have been handled a bit more organically in a direct interaction with Bail Organa. 

If it does happen in SOLO?  I think that it may link back to a line from ANH where Threepio says...

"We'll be sent to the spice mines of Kessel and smashed into who knows what".  And from some of the toy releases, it seems like there may be some sort of fighting/working droids on Kessel, which figures into the movie in some way.

I didn't even read your tiny type and I know exactly what you are referring to. If that is the case, it will almost require a whole other movie just to explain how the droids happen to get there.

LOL!

Yeah, it would be shoehorning gone wild.

They could have Jimmy Smits walk through the background with R2-D2 and C-3P0 in tow.

A clip from SOLO got shown at Cinemacon in Las Vegas yesterday.  Spoiler warnings apply.

I had been kind of wondering how Han wound up hooking up with Beckett.  But based on the Topps card image of Beckett and Val in Imperial military uniforms?  Things are starting to come together about their connections.

Based purely on the trailers alone?  I'm thinking that this movie will address the plot point from ANH about the length of the Kessel Run in terms of distance, and not time.

There are some pretty HUGE spoilers floating out there for Solo. Tread lightly.

I've been steering clear of the actual spoilers, but some of the early social media reviews warned of "Infinity War" level spoilers for this movie, anxious to see what that means next week.

I've found that most spoilers for the last three star wars movies have been 100% wrong.

Fake spoiler warning:

For example, why would Darth Maul be in this movie?

Local paper (Star Tribune) had this spoiler in the Solo movie review and a few co-workers mentioned it to me despite my effort to stay spoiler free.  So much for that surprise. ::) :(
