Why the young Han Solo had to be completely different than the full-grown Han Solo…

So I’ve just seen “Solo: A Star Wars” story earlier this afternoon. I thought the film was pretty damn enjoyable. I liked it a lot! Yes, the film did Star Wars justice all the way through!

There are a lot of complaints about this movie, though. Mostly the complaints are that the film’s leading star who plays the young Han Solo looks nothing like the Harrison Ford Han Solo. Well, after watching the actual film today, I would have to say Alden Ehrenreich does resemble Harrison a little bit if you actually look at him… it’s just that Alden and Harrison’s speaking voices are different. That’s what people are complaining about? I can understand why both had to be different. I mean, think about how silly would it be if a young Han Solo had to look like and speak exactly like Harrison. It would seem like a parody almost.

Another thing to keep in mind that when you’re young, your looks and speaking voices changes as you get older anyways. So in my opinion, it makes total sense to make both different. The film crew didn’t want the young Han to be exactly like the full grown Han. On top of that, it would be very hard to find someone who speaks like Harrison ’cause nobody could speak like Harrison anyways. There is only one Harrison and that is Harrison. There is not one person out there that can be like him although there are many actors out there who tries to impersonate him. They wanted someone who is not an exact copy of Harrison and Alden was the right fit.

With that being said, though, I thought Alden did a very good job. Even though the speaking voice was different, Alden got Han’s personality down perfectly, though. Alden did a good job showing what Han would have been like when he was young.

Other than that, though I thought the “Solo” movie was really good. It was well directed and well acted by the rest of the cast. Donald Glover did the young Lando really well and I was impressed with Emilia Clarke in the film. I also thought Woody Harrelson was awesome.

A lot of so-called Star Wars fans are complaining about the new SW’s films by Disney but why? Would you rather have George Lucas back? If you say “Yes” then George wouldn’t have done a better job. He would have made the new movies much much worse. Remember those awful prequels? Yeah, I thought so. I’m glad Lucas is gone ’cause I wasn’t a big fan of the prequels either. I saw all the new Star Wars movies in theater so far: Episode 7, Episode 8, Rogue One and now Solo. I love them all. I think Disney is doing a great job so far and doing them justice.

Anyhow, back to the “Solo” film, I feel this is gonna be a trilogy of some sorts ’cause the ending left open for more. Will there be a sequel to Solo? I think there will be ’cause Jabba needs to come in and have a feud with Han still. Remember Jabba and Han were feuding over money and stuff and I was hoping they would show all that stuff in a future film soon. Maybe Jabba will be in “Solo II”? Hopefully there will be a “Solo II” ’cause I can’t see this film ending right here.

Ron Howard confirmed to direct “Han Solo” spinoff movie for Star Wars… interesting…

Here’s a few interesting tidbits, back when Ron Howard was an actor he starred in “American Graffiti” which was a film George Lucas directed before he made the first Star Wars film. Then later  in the 80’s, Ron Howard directed a movie called “Willow” which was another George Lucas creation.

Now Ron will be officially directing a Star Wars film for the first time ever. Even though George Lucas isn’t involved at all, it’s still kind of cool.

I like Ron Howard, he has made some good movies over the years. I think he could pull off a Star Wars movie pretty well, trust me. I think it’s clear that he is a pretty big Star Wars fan like most of us so I’m sure he’s capable of giving us a Star Wars film that all of us would want to see. I’m sure he won’t disappoint us at all.

“Willow” was a great film and that film was kind of like Star Wars a bit. There was a lot of sword fighting in that film so I’m sure Ron is capable of putting on some entertaining as hell light saber battles.

While the cast is already all set, I’m sure Ron will add more actors to the cast. Wouldn’t it be cool if Tom Hanks get some kind of role in the film? Like maybe a cameo appearance? Would be kind of cool. Ron and Tom Hanks made a lot of movies together over the years.

Game of Thrones star, Emilia Clarke joins Han Solo standalone movie, interesting…

Game of Throne star, Emilia Clarke has joined the cast of the Han Solo stand alone movie. Her character is unknown at this point but I’m sure many will immediately assume that she’s going to play a younger Princess Leia. Could be a possibility but I doubt it.

http://www.starwars.com/news/emilia-clarke-joins-the-han-solo-stand-alone-film?cmp=smc|670805017&linkId=31337128

Doing a little digging, I’m almost pretty sure that Emilia will be playing Sana Starros which was a character who has been claimed to be married to Han Solo.

The goal for the film is to depict Han Solo’s life before the original trilogy so I don’t think Leia will be in it. Han claims Sana was lying about the marriage just to pull off a robbery. If that storyline will be in the film, could be interesting.

Hopefully the Han Solo spinoff movie will still be good. What do you think? Can Alden Ehrenreich pull it off playing Han? Can he still be the same smart ass smuggler and be similar to Harrison’s version of the character? Probably. He’s gonna be the same Han Solo he has always been. The young Han will still have some funny one-liners, I’m sure.

Who’s gonna play the young Han Solo? My bets are gonna be either Chris Pratt or Channing Tatum…

Disney confirmed that Han Solo is getting his own film but it will be a standalone. It will focus on Han Solo’s life growing up. So that means someone will be playing a young Han Solo, the wisecracking smuggler. The film will be directed by the two guys who gave us “The Lego Movie” and the two “21 Jump Street” films.

Who is gonna play the young Han Solo? Like the title says my bets are gonna be on Chris Pratt or Channing Tatum. I wouldn’t be surprised if they get Tatum, though. I hope not ’cause I’m not a big fan of Tatum at all… I would prefer Pratt over Tatum.

It’ll be interesting to see the history of Han Solo of how he became a smuggler and all that stuff. I’d like to see more insight on his friendship with Lando so a young black actor will have to play Lando for sure. Keep in mind that Han Solo has been dealing with Jaba the Hut for years so Jaba is probably gonna be involved. It’ll show how Han and Chewie met.

Look at Han Solo’s history for more:

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Han_Solo

Will the film use some of that stuff? Han Solo was born on planet Corellia and fell in love with a woman named Bria Tharen so I wonder if Bria Tharen will be a character in the movie? They probably will.

Will Harrison Ford be involved in this film? Probably not ’cause this film will focus on a young Han Solo probably but still there’s a possibility that Harrison could get a small role at the end of the film to explain the character growing up.

This is one spinoff that I’m actually interested in!

Han Solo costume leaked for “Star Wars Episode VII”…

Yesterday,  new Stormtrooper/Snowtrooper costumes have been leaked to the web and today, Han Solo costume art have been leaked to the web.

See, Han Solo’s new costumes here:

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/68392

As you can see, they have ditched the white shirt and black vest for Han Solo which is a pretty smart move actually. Keep in mind that “Star Wars Episode 7” takes place 30 years after Return of the Jedi so everything is probably gonna be different.

New costumes. New looks for the characters. New spaceships. New uniforms and all that stuff. New technology. New weapons.

Everything will be different from George Lucas’s era of Star Wars. That’s what it’s looking like to me.

I like Han Solo’s new look. At least, he still has the lazer gun!

While I’m pretty sure, Episode 7 will still have light sabers, I’m sure JJ will give the light sabers a new look and feel too. I just hope JJ will keep the light saber sound effect. You know that sound the light saber makes when the Jedi’s start swinging them? That buzzing sound effect. I would think they would keep the buzzing sound from the light saber but JJ might make that a little different too. He will make the color and the sound different of the light saber.

This is a completely new era of Star Wars so say goodbye to all the George Lucas designs and ideas… all that stuff will be considered old-school.

Look like Han and Chewy will be flying Millennium Falcon one more time!!!

I hate TMZ like the next person but I thought this would be worth posting. TMZ exclusively reveals which looks like a photo of the construction of the Millennium Falcon for “Star Wars Episode 7” at Pinewood Studios. Look like we are gonna see Han and Chewy back in action again!

I wonder if we’re gonna see the return of Tie Fighters and other Empire war ships. We’re definitely gonna see some epic space battles in “Episode VII” for sure!
