Han Solo Movie on the Way From The LEGO Movie Helmers

jinXed by JaNx
just a bad idea all around. I think focusing any more time and energy into Star Wars prequels is an awful idea. I think making a stand alone film for any of the original cast is even worse. Everything we need to know about those characters has already been established. Apart of the appeal of Han Solos character is that is the mystery of what happened in his past to make him so apathetic at the beginning of episode 4.

Flyattractor
If they made movie adaptations of the old Han Solo books from way back in the day I would be all "Hell Yeah" for this, but if they do it now.....No. They will just **** it up.

I'll call the studio and Chris's agent, it'll make it happen just for you, Bruce.

Flyattractor
Yeah on that topic because there is NO One who could replace the AWESOMENSS that is Harrison Ford.

That and the studios would probably pic some pretty boy little snot.

It would have worse problems then the Solo Movie would. Biggest one would be that they would have to make it so Boba has his helmet off for most of the movie.

Cause the actor NEEDS the Face Time!

marwash22
nah. No one knows Boba by his face, they know him from his helmet. if Snake Eyes can go w/o showing his face, so can Boba. Also, if they really felt the need to show his face, they could do the Iron Man HUD thing... but again, that wouldn't be necessary seeing as Boba is known by his helmet.

That's why the people behind the movie would need to stick to their guns & tell the studio exec to go away.

People still care about the character 32 year after his last appearance.

What do you think is going to change in 3 more years.


He is an Iconic hero, no doubt.

thumb up that's the reason they're doing this movie most likely, because the character is so popular.

Star Wars is still one of the most popular franchises of all time, especially in this country. Han Solo is one of the most popular characters from said franchise.

You can't really think people wouldn't know who he is in just a few years?

I don't think Star Wars is going away any time soon. It's not even just movies. Books, comics, video games, tv shows, etc.

A smart person could keep this franchise alive for the next century if they made the right choices. People love SW's and that doesn't just apply to the generation of people who grew up watching the original films.

I'm just saying...,Han Salo isn't a James Bond character. Have some goddamn respect for the actor. This idea would be akin to making a new, Dirty Harry film series but focusing on his rookie years.

Just take solace in the fact that we were at least spared some kind of obnoxious scene from the prequels where we see a young Han Solo. Given they shoved Chewbacca into the prequels for no reason whatsoever I'm shocked they didn't do the same to Han.

No, not really. So again you fall into the it's popular and other people love it so I have to as well. I think Han Solo is lame and I never go for someone as goofy as he is. I'm a Darth Maul guy. He couldn't be further from this lame Han Solo but hold onto Shan as one of your faves not mine.

He is some jackass character who dotes on Leia. He's the typical reformed scoundrel who found his honor because he grew to care for the rebels. He isn't someone I like at all. You seem to champion the character so tell me what you like about him. I find him increasingly boring and lame.


I also find the new transformers films to be lame despite their huge success at the box office.

Juz saying I was 8 years old when Star Wars hit the big screen.
Harrison Ford will always be Han Solo...not some young actor that's gonna play him in the prequel.
So being closer to 50 when the prequel comes out...I'm doubting "my generation" will give a dam about a non-Harrison Ford, Han Solo.

Darth Thor
^ Yeah I think an Obi-Wan (or even a Yoda) movie would appeal to a more multi-generational audience tbh. Because I think even most the OT generation have already accepted Ewan portraying the role.

But it seems like Disney want to keep almost everything related to the OT and avoid the PT for now.

Esau Cairn
Disney will no doubt be releasing a Young Adventures of Han Solo cartoon pretty prior to the movie. This is stir the interests & make people forget Ford was the one true Han.

An younger actor playing a character that Ford made famous is stupid.

Chris Pratt aint who I would pick for the role. But then there aint' too many current actors that I can think of that could fill Harrison Ford's shoes.

IMO, Egerton is prolly the frontrunner

Kazenji
Read that there are two more which were not mentioned with some internet movie news sites

Blake Jenner (Glee) and Jack O'Connell (Starred Up, Unbroken) are also in contention.

Robtard
I'd pick Egerton out of the rest. He showed a bit of the suave rogue in Kingsmen, could translate well into a younger, cockier Solo.

Why cant we move forward in the Star Wars Universe. Keep the original mythology alone. There is an entire Universe to choose from. Please, No more GOD DAMN prequels!.

It would make much more sense for disney to focus on movies that introduce original characters that are going to star in future movies rather than keep focusing on characters of decades past.

Kazenji
Well they've already done a backstory for Han Solo as 3 novel trilogy......oh wait Disney has scrapped the EU.

Uh...didn't you hear about this?

They ARE going forward with new characters. But they are also doing what every other studio in Hollywood is doing: imitating the Marvel Studios approach. Where every new film is not a direct sequel but a 'sidequel', going to a different part of the cinematic universe before coming back to the main focus. And there's lots of room to explore in the past.

As far as the third spin off movie being possibly about Boba Fett, I would be more interested in a Obi-Wan Kenobi spin off, where Fett is a supporting character and they renew hostilities that began on Kamino when Boba was a boy.

ares834
I wouldn't really say TFA moved SW forward. I loved the film but it was in many ways a rehash.

roughrider

And we can debate all day about how much of it was a rehash and how much it was just observing the rules of a Star Wars film, especially the first in a new series.

- Where someone must say "I have a bad feeling about this"

- At least twice in a trilogy, someone must shout "NO!" in shock and horror.

- In the first film of each trilogy, the elder statesman character who's been mentoring some younger characters comes to a shocking end.

- Some ace pilot hits a shot no one else could hit to take down the weapon that's about the spell defeat and doom for our heroes.

And so on.


Plus there was a big effort from the beginning to convince fans who can't let the prequels go, that this was going to be more of what you loved and remembered about the OT.

ares834

roughrider
The First Order wasn't the government, the Republic was. TFO was a rogue state, a cross between North Korea and ISIS. They didn't explain in enough detail why the Republic was sponsoring the Resistance instead of engaging TFO openly, but we could guess why. If they spent too much time explaining the politics, fans might have said "Oh, just like Lucas in the prequels, wasting time on political manoeuvring."

Actually even the FO/Resistance struggle just seemed like a rehash of the old Empire/Rebellion struggle.

I mean it was a little more complicated then that, but like you said they didn't really delve into that complexity.

Anything that happens before episode 7 is a prequel and I don't need to see a movie about it. If something happened in the universe, regarding, episode 7 I would have seen or heard about it through exposition. Save all that crap for a tv show or book

Darth Thor
^ Well the Episodes are going forward, so it's nice to get something different but also more familiar with the spin off's.

Alden Ehrenreich is confirmed for the role.

|King Joker|

Darth Thor
^ Looking through some pictures/vids and I can already see he does "look" much more like Solo than Taron.

jinXed by JaNx
I'll say this even after the movie releases.., NO MORE PREQUELS! This is the fear everyone had about Disney getting the Star Wars rights...,milking everything!

Kazenji
^ The Milking started long before Disney got a hold of it.

ares834
Not really. Sure, there was a shit ton of merchandise but had Lucas truly wanted to milk the franchise he could do what Disney is doing right now.

Kazenji
There were also the two Ewok movies and few other's, He still milked them to a certain extent.

ares834
Minor direct to TV films aren't much... And there were very few. Comparatively, Disney is churning out film after film after film every single year. The milking is on a far larger scale then ever before.

Darth Thor
Yes. Milking Han Solo, milking Boba Fett. Heck milking the Death Star even. Ben Kenobi or Yoda will likely be next ones to be milked.

But none of its unexpected after they spent $4Billion to acquire it.

Esau Cairn
Disney wants to build its own Death Star.

Fact is, it's not MILKING the franchise if the movies actually turn out to be good. Look at how many Star Trek movies there are. Not many of them are actually good. Star Wars has 4 good movies and a couple bad to decent ones.

Kazenji
"Shrugs" agree to disagree.

Funny because Ares didn't trash Disney for milking. Just pointed out that they are milking it to a much greater extent than its been done pre-Disney SW.

Rogue One I can take, but a Han Solo film after TFA is kinda pushing it. Meh...

I thought He was bound to show up now that Han's gone. And with this Prequel news it should be a given. But still no news of him in Ep.8 which finished shooting months ago sad

Must be a dream come true for the guy too.

I would think so.
Everyone wants an action figure of themselves!

Yeah, that would be like me cameoing in a Blue Beetle movie!

^ Think it's a little better than that.

There's always the potential later for a Lando solo film. That's probably as good as getting cast as the Miles Morales Spider-Man which he was trying to do for a long time.


Edit- Tbh I think a Lando film featuring Han and Chewie would have been a more creative move for Lucasfilm, instead of just focusing more on the top main characters of the franchise. But of course a Han Solo movie is the safer bet for them.

^^^Nothing is better than me cameoing in a BB flick. Ted Kord, of course, not that poser Reyes.

Nice insight on the potential regarding future projects for Donald, though. I wish him luck, this could be big for him.

imho anything involving already existing storylines is uncreative, and i really don't think that lando's back story would be very exciting. (losing the millennium falcon to gambling, becoming leader of a gas mining facility, and being an avid cock-blocker are pretty much his most significant resume bullet-points so far.) i want to see a stand-alone story instead of one prequel after another.

They need the confidence to believe the mass audience would be interested in that first.

Wouldn't KOTOR be kind of COMPLICATED to try and make into a movie?
