Gotta admit, I’m excited for Solo

The initial idea of this movie seemed like a giant ‘WHY?’ but now that we’ve started seeing trailers for it, especially the recent ones, I am super pumped to see this next Star Wars Story movie!  I will keep the excitement in check though, as the memories of Rogue One‘s betrayal (having scenes in the trailer that were NOT in the movie) are still with me.  But yeah, these recent trailers are all gold, and I am pretty happy to see that Alden Ehrenreich looks to be a fine Han Solo.  He better be, after playing Hobie Doyle in Hail, Caesar!

I’m loving Chewie in these spots…so excited to see more.   “I’ve got a really good feeling about this” is a classic line already, as is the possibility that we’ll see how and why Chewie has a life debt to Han.

I am finding that I really love these :45 spots the most – Lucasfilm did these for The Last Jedi and are doing them again for Solo and it’s a wonderful length for a spot without overstaying its welcome.  And they keep finding new footage to show off!

Chewie grimacing at Han’s cards is fucking fantastic.

I did love the Super Bowl spots too, especially with the look at what might be the Kessel Run!

Fingers crossed!
