    Probably Han racing and getting into trouble. i don't think they'll have a crawl, nor should it.

    I think they will stick with no opening crawl and leave that exclusively to the saga films.

    I also think they will start with the young Han. I think it supposed to progress of a longer period.

    Although, and I haven't heard anything to the likes, but feel it would be a nice, sneaky treat, if it was to start with older Han (Harrison Ford) and Lando (Billy Dee Williams) sitting at a Sabaac table talking when they start to reminisce about the glory days. The screen fades to black then we are thrown into a young Han story.

    Part of the Star of the Show want only be Han Solo but the Millenium Falcon especially for the spaceship Fans.So Maybe it will show the early Falcon as it is bieng modified or its early history as well . The Falcon to Solo is like Trigger to Roy Rogers.

    This is on of my favorite scenes in all of the films. Absolutely beautiful and epic.

    I think the skipping around time periods and points of focus has high potential for casual audience confusion and the scroll is a good atmospheric hook that most fans quite like that makes immersion easier.

    I think the scroll should just be part of the deal, it's superior branding as well. I continue to think it is a mistake not to take advantage of such a well liked and simple tool to set the stage of each film.

    The dark space. A ship in the distance. The camera approaches it. It's something we know. But it's different. The Millennium Falcon. The camera approaches the cockpit from the side. There is a pilot. The camera crosses de glass and we see...
    Who the #€~$$% is this guy?

    (Note: we are not talking about Alden playing Solo here. There is no irony. We are talking about seing someone we don't know piloting the ship. No Lando, no Han, no Chewie...)

    I'd say Lando would be an obvious choice, but maybe Woody Harrelson or Thandie Newton owned the Falcon before him even?

    No crawl, but keeping the shot of space, panning across the screen to a star ship.

    I can't see them doing a similar start (exact copy?) as R1 with the main protagonist much younger to start with. I reckon Alden will play Han throughout.

    I'm just glad they finally gave us the scale of what the Death Star looks like compare to a Star Destroyer. We really didn't get any reference in the OT, except for the 2nd death.

    Which, the 2nd Death Star is significantly bigger than the first, also.

    it would be a great irony if Lando wins the falcon himself in a game of Sabacc during the movie... only to bet it days later and lose it to Han.

    I forgot to put Beckett on that list ;P but could be so great to see Woody (or Thandie) as the first pilot of the Falcon, if we are expecting Han on it.

    @TheBBP I like the way you think....I was just watching this scene, over again, on YouTube and thinking just the same thing. The DS was really brought into magnificent detail in R1.....just incredible.

    I predict this will be the opening shot.

    I'd almost be willing to bet that the opening shot or scene is Han racing that speeder with Qi'ra as we see in the trailer.

    I’d imagine it will be similar to Rogue One. It will definitely not have an opening crawl

    Kinda hope they change it up little bit from RO. Imo it doesn't have to start in space.. As long as it starts with A Long time ago.. You know the rest of it.
