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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Of course, there is quite a bit more than that. We have an ex-Jedi who was seduced by the dark side and betrayed and slaughtered them. We have a superweapon capable of destroying planets. We have a rebellion fighting against a tyrannical govít. The opening is literally just ANHís opening redone. Now sure, there are many differences, Iíve argued them. But one thing TFA did not do is move SW forward. It reset it back to where we were in A New Hope.

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."

Itís still a govít, just not the dominant one of the galaxy. And yes, the Republic is sponsoring the Resistance but this has no impact on the film so is fairly irrelevant from that perspective. Plus itís blown up by end of the film which reiterates my point that they reset the GFFA to basically where it was in ANH.

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.

Yep.

EU did pretty much the same thing - New Republic vs. The Remnant.

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

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