Not the most original title, but the Han Solo film finally has a title:

Solo: A Star Wars Story

This opens up so many possibilities!!!!!

Chewy: A Star Wars Story
IG-88: A Star Wars Story
Sarlacc: A Star Wars Story
Figrin D'an and The Stupendously Wonderful Cantina Band: A Star Wars Story

I think you get the idea.

I'm sure that many people here have seen the first trailer for the Han Solo Film. If not here it is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTcaMjraJUY

I'm not sure what anyone else thinks, but my first thoughts were that it seems a bit like Blade Runner, meets the first reboot of the Star Trek films. Also, I'm not sure about anyone else, but seeing the Millennium Falcon in almost pristine condition and not the "Piece of Junk" that we've all come to know is going to take a bit of getting used to.

Looks okay. Hope it's cut form the same cloth as Rogue One, which has been by far the best of the batch where the new films are concerned. I think these spin-offs are slightly less weighed down and have more room to be their own thing.

My friend and I were talking the other day about how utterly awesome the closing Vader scene from Rogue One is (that was a reshoot scene btw!), it really had that 'hell yes', moment when Vader just rips through the Rebel forces with such brutality.

We both agreed they could totally make a Vader film that chronicles the hunting down of the remaining Jedi, perhaps get Liam Neeson back and give him a shot at being in a good Star Wars film. There have been rumblings around him making a return to the SW film universe.

As I have said, I am not very thrilled to see this film. I am interested enough that I won't be watching the trailer because I do have to see it, if just for the fact that everyone I know will see it.

I TOTALLY agree on the Vader film and is it possible that it will eventually be a reality?

Interesting thoughts about a Vader Movie.

With the announcement that the creators of Games of Thrones now producing a few Star Wars Movies, I guess anything is possible.

It's obvious that Disney is going to try and milk every dime they can out of the Star Wars Universe like Luke did with the Thala-Siren.

Since there's been 26 James Bond Movies, I guess we can guarantee that Disney will try and make at least a dozen more Star Wars movies after Episode 9.

Yeah you're not kiddin. I wonder how many B5 Universe related movies would have been made by now, if Disney owned the rights to Babylon 5.

Hmmm. Sadly, I doubt it. B5 has nowhere near the following Star Wars has. Sadly we are a cult phenomenon with a relatively small fanbase. The numbers don't add up for any studio. Even the Blade Runner sequel suffered at the box office because large swathes of younger view had no idea what it was.

However, with everything being re-booted or re-made to within an inch of it's life, I a kinda surprised B5 hasn't been unearthed.
