I kind of like the idea of no more footage at all until the premiere.

I understand I'm in the minority on this.

At this point I'm thinking we get only one more big/final trailer. The more I read about no footage at Comic-Con, the more legit it sounds. And truthfully, the idea of a trailer mid-summer never felt quite right (May/October made way more sense). That said, everything is out the window with the schedule this go around, so who knows. At the very least I figured there'd be some kind of Comic-Con exclusive reveal.

I bought in until it suggested that Han would be in Episode 8. I see that as like a 1:100 shot.

Maybe this is the actual movie Donnie Yen is rumored to be in (see link above) instead of Ep VIII

I've been on record as saying I don't want a Han Solo movie, but I'll be the first to admit that a Lord & Miller, Lawrence Kasdan-written Han Solo movie sounds pretty damn awesome.

Not a fan of this.

1) Young Anakin/Vader worked out so well
2) anybody playing Han other than Harrison Ford is doomed to fail
3) why not let our minds fill in the blanks? Where's the mystery?
4) why not develop new characters

Kind of a random choice of directors.

And I agree. Han Solo should not be messed with.

I dunno, it seems like this news broke pretty shortly before you posted, dude.

News broke an hour before I posted, before SW.com confirmed.

I don't know, I think it could be amazing (even though it says it's not happening) that since Rogue One is a "war movie," they are in the middle of the battle, and then Vader drops in and just goes full Force Unleashed on the mofos. Bloody, gory carnage everywhere. No music, just screams, laser sounds, and explosions. Completely turns the tide of the battle for the bad guys.

I thought the point of rogue one was to avoid the magic and stick with more normal warfare

As for Vader being in Rogue One, you can't ignore him in any film that takes place from the end of the Clone Wars all the way up to Jedi. He's the most bad ass, destructive force (so to speak) in the universe. He's out looking for the base of the Rebel uprising. He and his death squads are hunting down any rumors of Jedi. Any Rebel battle strategy simply MUST be built around trying to be wherever Vader isn't, simply because he's a game changer. I sort of expect Rogue One to be about an operation that is part of a multi-front operation, where a main Rebel force is elsewhere as a distraction, and the smaller Rogue One team is performing the real operation.

As for Han, I think backstory there can be fine. The best part about the anthology films is that they stand alone. If it's not our favorite Star Wars movie, it's not like that carries on for a whole trilogy. In general I do agree that prequels should be avoided, just because it doesn't give the writers as many creative options.

Check the article. He's only going to be on the periphery of the story, mostly seen on screens, giving orders, etc. Nothing really Force related.

I'd bank serious money on Boba Fett showing up in the Han Solo film. Espeically if it centers around the Hutts and Mos Eisley.

The change of the word Hutt from a title to a species was the beginning of the end.
