    I don't have high hopes for any of these movies.

    if they can find an actor for the Han spinoff that closely resembles Harrison, i can see myself really enjoying it. Its the only side story I find myself interested in, especially if they incorporate Jabba the Hut and that whole back story.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    The thing about a Han backstory is they will make him look like a good guy, which he is not supposed to be at all when we meet him in Episode IV. This would set the character arch back even more than Greedo shooting first.

    I had no idea that was part of Han's backstory. In fact, I reject the idea that it necessarily is. You could make something interesting out of that though I suppose. I guess I'd like to see what it's like to go through Imperial Flight Academy. Maybe.

    I like the idea of this only because i'm interested in seeing the perspectives of other Imperial pilots and staff, beyond them being cannon fodder.

    Agreed.

    Also, while I once advocated it myself I would appreciate it if everybody shut the fuck up about Han no longer being a scumbag at the start of Star Wars. Yes, the Greedo shot makes the scene insanely worse. That being said, I don't think Han was really supposed to be a horrible guy. He was a smuggler, he got into some trouble with a mob boss. Whattaya gonna do besides shoot the bounty hunter.

    I just glanced at Solo's wookiepedia page and it turns out this is SW canon, and critical to his life path and bond with Chewbacca. I was compelled to read the rest of that page, hopefully they rewrite most of that storyline for episode VII and onward because his story's pretty fucked.

    The whole "canon" thing is kinda bullshit. It's not movie canon until it's in a fucking movie. Lucas admitted like ALL the books into the canon, do you know how much shit there is in there that you know if he actually knew what they were saying he'd be like, "Holy shit... I thought I was terrible at this."

    Chewbacca's devotion to Solo is critical to the original trilogy and thus anything that explains it is pretty much bona fide canon, especially in the absence of any other explanation. Granted, they could rewrite it. But they'd need a compelling reason.

    You know they have to come up with some excuse to turn Solo into a smuggler. He's fundamentally a "good guy" especially in a Disney universe, so they need a righteous path for him to fall from, and a potential for redemption (which we already know he got). Being an imperial cadet is pretty obvious way to round out his story. And it's already out there.

    They need a compelling reason to rewrite things? Why does anyone think Disney would possibly give a shit what some fanfic douchebag wrote? Chewbacca will owe Han his life due to some heroic act taking place during a massive CGI fest, you dildo.

    that's only part of it. Again they also need a wholesome origin for Solo. The current story is about as clean a story as you could get. I don't see a compelling reason to write a significantly different one. Besides, Solo was born during the Clone Wars, which probably affected him and/or his family somehow, and a complicated relationship with the newly formed empire should be decent fodder for plot.

    He isn't supposed to be horrible like Michael Corleone at the end of Godfather 2, but he is supposed to be the anti hero put in a really bad situation like Michael Corleone at the end of Godfather part 1

    I don't know how I feel about this.
    I mean, this isn't new, per say (they've done this even before the Disney deal to an extent), but...





    However, i LOVED this. I love the new head pieces they have for the Disney characters. The eye lids and mouth open and close.

    Meanwhile, the other major sci fi movie franchise that stars with Star is killing it. Into Darkness is amazing. Impossible to hate if you are even a casual fan of the series.

    I knew per say didn't look right.

    And maybe it does blink too much, but cooler than not at all.
    Gives it a bit more personality.

    This. I for one am really excited for the spin offs. There's so much potential for new themes and film styles. Imagine a Boba Fett film in the style of say Tarantino (not exactly, but elements of). Hopefully Disney takes some chances and doesn't play it too safe.

    i thought it was well known that Han used to be a TIE pilot candidate? but who knows what fan fiction that came from. but i've always been infatuated with that idea, the flight academy, etc., and the TIE pilots being mindlessly devoted but intensely skilled. even stormtroopers. like what the fuck do they do at the end of the day? i hate the old republic shit though. i'm more interested in 20 or so years before the original trilogy, and maybe 20 or so years after. and nothing else.

    "Movies" are better by a small margin.
    Define "camping"..... a couple hours or days?

    For Star Wars, I think a more appropriate time frame is "months".
