    I marked this as a spoiler since the clip contains a tiny shred of plot point that hasn't been totally explicit from the marketing.

    This is a brand new clip from Solo shared by Woody on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live. The clip shows the moment, or thereabouts, where Han falls in with Beckett and Val. This clip really seals Alden as Han for me. He comes off as a young Han would. It is convincing to me. It's not a Harrison Ford impression. It's Han filtered through Alden, but reads very much as Han Solo to me. Afterwards, there is smalltalk between Woody and Kimmel wherein Woody gives Alden his seal of approval. He didn't need to praise Alden specifically. That he went out of his way to do so speaks well to Alden's performance in my mind. Enjoy:

    Great clip. Although, the best one is still where Han shows Chewie his cards.
    Also, since Woody goes to specifically praise Alden means, that "they" are aware of peoples' "doubts" about Alden and this is "them" trying to ease that. Which is good.

    Obviously. But he might as well just said something like "we had a great cast and crew". No, this sounds specific.

    I agree. Woody would not say anything negative but he didn’t have to go out of his way to praise Alden. He was not asked or even prompted to say anything about Alden. I think it is an honest opinion

    I definitely get what you're saying. I just like to err on the side of not cynical I suppose. Haha.

    If he thought that, I'd surmise he wouldn't say anything, and rather simply fulfill his studio obligations, show up, say "see this movie," roll the clip, and leave.

    Why do so many Star Wars characters have London accents now? Way too many in Solo

    In the last day, I've seen people on this site:

    1.) complain about there being too many "London accents" (There are at least 4 major accents found throughout London, so........);
    2.) complain about Woody's accent being "too country for Star Wars";
    3.) complain about Alden sounding "not enough like Han" (I assume they meant Harrison);
    4.) complain about L3-37 sounding "too much like Phasma";
    5.) complain about Paul Bettany not sounding "threatening enough";
    6.) complain about Rio sounding too much like Jon Favreau's regular speaking voice.

    There are several other ridiculous criticisms, but I am tired of typing. These are purported "fans" of Star Wars. Do we all see the problem here? This level of scrutiny and criticism is gonna suffocate the franchise to death. I cannot STAND all of the negativity. It's just beyond bonkers at this point.

    Welcome to Star Wars my friend. It's only whining and complaining in these here parts. If it ain't Empire trikes Back, it's the worst thing they've ever seen in their entire lives. Now they demand More Chicken TENDIES MOM!

    If you don't love everything with Star Wars' name on it, you're not a real fan! Stop being so negative! I'm triggered!

    That's not what I said at all. I'm not "triggered". I just think it is silly to have so many complaints for a film that hasn't even been released yet.

    MOD EDITED AT MEMBERS REQUEST.

    So... you try to discredit me because I have 400+ more negative ratings than you (many of which were from the same 3 people)

    ..and yet I also have 5000+ more positive ratings :rolleyes:

    P.S. If someone disagrees with your opinion on something, that doesn't mean they're "not a real fan" or "whack" "bruh"

    I used those words for the sake of irony. I'm going to end this here because it's incredibly off topic and definitely not worth engaging publicly any further.


    Anyyyyways, everyone else...how about that Han Solo? What a scamp!
