    My question is this.....With level of technology Hollywood can pull off these days, would they re-cast Luke or simply CGI a younger Luke on Mark Hamill ala Michael Douglas or Patrick Stewart in certain Marvel movies?

    Personally I think what hurt SOLO was that we wanted Harrison Ford OR at the very least someone who didn't come across as a parody. Heath Ledger for example doesn't come across as a parody of Jack Nicholson's Joker. If they re-cast Luke, I hope it's someone who delivers in the role the same way Ewan McGregor delivered as Obi Wan Kenobi.

    Hamill isn't dead. Hamill can work out and grow the beard maybe.

    I think it's there but you have to search for it. Yea..it would have been better to have someone who looked like Harrison and acted like Han.

    It is going to be on Disney+ at some point this summer when the Netflix/Disney deal ends. Same goes for Ant Man 2 and Infinity War.

    The Director Round table was interesting to watch. Cool to see how collaborative they all were.

    EDIT: according to Google, Solo will be added July 9

    I love The Mandalorian, but it’s not yet a patch on either Clone Wars or Rebels which should be right there at 4 and 5 after the original trilogy.

    Oh yeah I'm just saying depending on WHEN they would place the Jedi Academy he can't roll up looking 60 years old when he's supposed to be what, 30ish? I'm not super familiar with the Jedi Academy stuff, I had a game for the X Box that was the fucking shit but I only played it a few times. Plus I've never read the books either so who knows.

    Shit, in the flashback of TLJ he looked how he does presently so yeah they might not have to do anything.

    I thought it was refreshing that they didn't try to overtly ape Harrison Ford's style. The problem was that the story was bang average. Inoffensive but utterly bland. Solo actually has a really good swashbuckling and derring-do score, but it feels like it was made for an entirely different film. Hollywood keeps conjuring up prequels that no-one asked for, but this one was ludicrous in terms of throwing in everything but the kitchen sink. In the course of just one film, he leaves a gang on Corellia, joins the Imperial Navy, escapes the Imperial Navy, meets Chewie, meets Lando, flies the Falcon, does the Kessel Run, meets the Rebellion in its early stage and wins the Falcon from Lando. And someone also had the bright idea of giving his name an origin story. If the sequel had gone ahead, god knows what it would have covered since everything we knew about Han from the original trilogy was already done.

    Solo hit the right notes, it just like all the Prequels stuff you know who lives and dies. I also think the lack of a great villian didn't help and trying to shoehorn a possible sequel with Maul was sorta stupid. Honestly, I think it's still better than most of the films, it's just the actor for Han felt off.

    After watching Rebels in full, I am fine with saying one season of Mandalorian is better than their run. I hate Ezra new Chosen One Bridger. Just the same people problem with Ashoka, I'm the kid character with the master plans and I'm untouchable. I liked Kannan and Herra but I don't buy the kid at the end. I think it's Rex's son. Adding Ashoka was fine til they used time travel to save her. God, I hope they don't ever use that portal thing again.

    If what makes a good story to you is “who lives, and who dies” you are really missing the point. Do characters sometimes have plot armor, sure, but Ezra is hardly a chosen one. Especially in a universe that constantly talks about The Chosen One. Based on the fact that Ezra didn’t balance the force, there is no way for him to be the chosen one.

    If you prefer other stories, great. You don’t have to shit on something just to praise another story.

    New topic:

    I starting listening to the audiobook for the Ahsoka book by EK Johnston. The prologue has a brief interaction with Darth Maul, which is obviously changed for Clone Wars. It is good so far, and is narrated by Ashley Eckstein who voices Ahsoka. I've listened to/read a lot of the newish star wars books too, so if anyone is looking for suggestions or a quick review let me know.

    I’m excited to have Morrison back. I would prefer him being Rex, but it is cool to have him be Fett too. I’m glad they waited until season 2 to reveal him, so we now have more time with Din.

    It is also cool that Temura Morrison has aged in real life to the point Boba Fett would be in the timeline now. The more I think about it, the more on board I am with the choice.

    The documentary show about the Mandalorian is fascinating. A must watch if you liked the show.

    So it was Boba that was teased, huh? I trust Favreau to do something good with this. Most people who engage him are going to see another Mandalorian which is why there's a lot of potential in Mando encountering him. He fell into Sarlacc's mouth... with a flamethrower, grappling hook, and jet pack.

    If they are going to bring Boba in, they have to address his involvement with Solo and Luke. Even if there is no longer a bounty on Han, he did throw him into the mouth of a giant monster. This is a thing that can't be ignored

    Also, someone else has his armor. But that will probably be ignored since it was in a book...

    For all the Disney PR saying the books are cannon, they are not. Even when Lucasfilm did the books and they were considered cannon that all went out the window as soon as the Prequels happened. I think the only books they acknowledge as happening was Shadows, Thrawn and the God Awful Vong series as well as a few books that major events or characters, but a large chunk of them were disregardes mainly due to how awful they were. Also, the books were the only Star Wars we were getting. Now, we movies and TV shows. I think they should stop with the books at this point especially the comics where holy God are they just throwing things at a wall.

    They reset the canon (one n) in 2014. It kept only the six films and the Clone Wars TV Series (not the cartoon network one) from before then.

    Most things since then are technically canon.

    Looked it up and I'm right, there's also this short story from around the time they made the reset that is considered canon as well. Blade Squadron.

    I dont think lotjx reads anything. I think he has dreams and uses tidbits out of those as facts.

    Seeing as how they are now making a Dr. Aphra audio drama, I don’t think they are going to ignore comics.

    The books are great. They give readers a bit of insight into some parts of the story, without forcing you to watch/read/listen to everything to understand.
