    Personally, I never was on board with this movie, I never saw the point for it and it appears the majority (at least anecdotally from what I have been seeing on everything SW related) are either lukewarm or outright hostile to the idea of a Han Solo Anthology. It appears this movie has had problems since the beginning, Kasdan isn't happy. KK and Lucasfilm aren't happy.

    I highly doubt they'd ever cancel the movie, but I think it will be re-written and shot differently.

    I didn't like the concept of Solo movie. However after seeing Rogue One I'm less cynical. So far I'm satisfied with Disney's Star Wars media. I don't know much about the current script, but both TFA and R1 had internal problems, and they turned out alright.

    There is a -190955% chance the film is canned.
    LFL will not take that hit.

    They have the resources to fix it.

    One of two options could happen...

    1. Shelf it...lock it away so it never sees the light of day.

    Or

    2. They can move forwards but there will be a handful of drastic changes and obstacles they'll have to overcome to put this fiasco behind them in order to get her done.


    I personally don't care what happens. I, like so many people, never asked for this film to be made in the first place. There are other stories they can tell rather than have them take place in the eras we are familiar with. What about SWTOR? There is alot of potential of ideas for storylines and characters within that era. For those who play the game would know what I mean.

    Mandalorians, for example, deserve more love since they were introduced via content in TCW and later in Rebels. I would love to see a series of films featuring the planet Mandalore and her moons...and among other planets as well. Only time will tell...not to mention that Kenobi film...not sure what the current status is on that.

    *sighs*

    Just....be patient and see what happens.

    It won't be canceled, it's too late now. But I'd rather see that happening than a trainwreck of a movie that affects the entire franchise. TFA was well received, so was RO, so things are going well for SW under Disney. But a bad movie is all it takes to make people wonder where the franchise is going and if we should expect further disappointments. I don't know, maybe Lucasfilm has too many movies in the works at the same time and that's what causes problems. I know there's a need to rake in money every single year, but it might backfire.

    If rumors are true and they are still happy with the script, but had differences in how much of a comedy the film should be, chances are that they only need to reshoot a handful of scenes.

    I wasn't overly excited when it was announced that Lucasfilm were going to make a Han Solo film, in fact I thought that it could be a big mistake. Not because I don't like the character, in fact Han Solo is my favourite and the Millennium Falcon is my favourite ship.

    My problem was the huge risk that this film would be a flop and ruin an iconic character, but over time the idea has grown on me and I've hoped it was going to be a hit.

    From what I've read, the script wasn't the problem it was Lord and Miller deviating from the script and almost turning this film into a comedy. If that's true then I'm fully behind Lucasfilm's decision to change director, this is arguably the hardest film they will make and they can't afford to mess this up!

    Just because a movie has been halted because a director/directors have been replaced doesn't mean that movie won't be successful. It has happened many times. I personally wasn't real excited about the film, but now that Ron Howard has taken over I'm more open minded and looking forward to it.

    But to answer the question; No. Stick to what was given and tweak it.

    Sure never thought we needed it anyway. Beyond wanting some fresh ground to be covered.
    Part of what works for characters like Han in my book is an air of mystique to their backstory.

    Why would be happy because a Star Wars movie is cancelled ?

    There are not much of those.

    I don't and never will want a young Han Solo movie. It is a disservice to the character if anyone else than Ford would act it. It is worse than making a Young Priness Leia movie with Anne Hathaways casted ....or something...
    IMO, it's money milking at its worst.
    Blah

    that said....Obi Wan movie with Ewan...that I welcome. He is funny and can act :D

    We as Star Wars fans live in this bubble in which we believe that what we want is what general audience wants. For them, Han Solo is one of the most popular characters. We have to face the fact that the movie is not made just for us, but for everyone. That is why the movie was made in the first place.

    But, to answer your question, no. I would never want any Star Wars films cancelled. Especially in the middle of a very successful run they are having so far.

    If this is a genuine question, he is the new Han Solo.

    Yes it is. I dont really follow the anthology things and I have been out of forums for a while. I dunno this actor by name so wasn't sure. :)
    I dunno...for me personally having an outsider doing a main character is worse treason to the cause than kylo stabbing him in the middle of a bridge.

    I think Disney wants to release this movie to bring in new fans to the films.....almost anyone out there knows the name Han Solo or the Millennium Falcon, even if they have never watched the movies.
    Get new fans on board and then introduce them to the older movies, a lot of kids now days might not be interested in the Originals due to the effects and how they aren't what they are use too.

    I have never been against it but I was not asking for it either.....I will take whatever Star Wars they can give me right now.....I'm in hog heaven between the books, comics, movies, TV shows, etc.
    My 6 year old can't get enough of this right now!
