    Welcome one, welcome all! Here's a place to post your predictions, be it obvious, wild speculation and rumors, or just fun theories you want to share! What do you think's gonna happen? How do you think it'll connect? Share and be shared!

    I guess I'll start off:

    I really only have two predictions of my own:


    1. Solo isn't Han's original last name. He got that name by defeating the Main Bad Guy and his croonies in a shootout alone*. Or should I say Solo?

    2. Lando LET Han win, because he got something even better out of the deal. What that would be, I have no idea.

    Other theories that I didn't come up with but I like:

    1. Thandie Newton's character is Sana Starros/Solo*.

    2. The Millinium Falcon might have had Imperial ties before Han (and/or Lando) acquired it. Or Lando's just really good at keeping things nice*.


    *The standoff scene in question is the one shown in the full teaser at 0:50. But I'm not sure we can be sure that's even Han.
    *Heard it from John Campea first.
    *Heard it on Hyper RPG first.

    Anyways, those are my theories. What are yours? What aren't yours but you heard of and like? Let us know!

    The "Han Solo" name is fake and a disguise. His real name is Sand Holdo, and he is Admiral Holdo's brother/uncle/cousin.

    Sand Holdo was a rough, coarse pilot and got everywhere. Anakin sensed this through force projection.

    I don't think that crisp white interior is actually the Falcon, just reminiscent of it. The layout doesn't seem right to me.

    I hope Han Solo isn't a phony name, it is something that is kind of a mystique ruiner.

    My biggest prediction, which is also my biggest fear, is that they'll mess up Han's relationships with women.

    Han Solo was always a smug who felt like he could get any girl he wanted. He treated women like trophies. Leia was the first one who stood up against him and told him what a self-arrogant prick he was, but she was also the first one who truly understood him - more than himself. That's why Han fell in love with Leia. But in the trailer, Emilia Clarke's character Qi'Ra says this:

    "I might be the only person, who knows.... what you really are."

    My prediction and fear is that they'll make Qi'Ra into this love interest who was impressed by Han as a young girl, and now once they're a bit older she is the only one who really sees through him because "she is the only one who understands him". I mean, that would be so disappointing. Not only would it basically make Qi'Ra a copy of Leia, it would largely diminish Leia's character and her relation to Han. I think it would be such a disgrace to Leia, because it would seem as if Han likes Leia just because she would remind him of Qi'Ra.

    I get it why they added Qi'Ra, but I really don't understand why they had to make her into a love interest who "truly understands Han". Why not just make her into a regular love interest whom gets heartbroken by Han? Show the audience what a heartbreaker Han is! Or even better, scratch the whole love interest part and just have her be her own character.

    I would love for Qi'ra to be dating Lando instead of Han (though the trailers don't give that impression).....it would be something the audience won't expect and would be a lot more interesting than giving Han another love interest( we already see him with another female in the Mos Eisley Cantina so we know he has a girl on every planet before Leia)....ideally, I'd like this movie to focus on Han's bromance with Chewie and the Kessel run.

    I hope I’m wrong but I have a bad feeling that Lando is going to have a smaller role in this movie than many are expecting

    Which way do you think they go? Han was always a "jerk" and only got good in OT, or was he good at first and turned cynical later before turning good again during OT?

    I'm pretty sure we'll see a starry-eyed young Han get disillusioned by something Qi'ra or Beckett does.

    Let me know if canon contradicts this, but . . .

    I predict that Chewie doesn't owe a life debt to Han. Han owes a life debt to Chewie.

    I predict that Chewie asks in wookiee where to go & Han recommends Tatooine for a drink at the cantina.

    I predict either Beckett or Qi'Ra will betray Han which will cause him to become the isolated, cynical, "shoots first" Han we know and love. I prefer it to be Qi'Ra in a role similar to Eva Green's in Casino Royale but recent comments make me think it will be Beckett. They recently said that Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins' relationship from Treasure Island was an influence on Beckett and Han's and Long John Silver famously betrays Jim.

    I don't think Thandie is playing Sana for 3 reasons
    1. She's too old
    2. Her name is Val
    3. the recent book announcement says we'll be meeting Sana for the first time in a story that takes place after the movie.
    I do however speculate that her full name could be Val Starros and she could in fact be Sana's mother.

    I also don't think they'll change Han's name. His name is Solo and will always be Solo.

    Less of a prediction and more of a hope. I think Temuera Morrison filmed a cameo as either Boba or a clone Imperial.

    Beckett may reveal that he knew a character from Original Trilogy.

    That's impossible as this takes place before the OT

    Now Beckett could have links to a character who then goes on to appear in the OT but apart from Han & Lando. I can't see him knowing anyone without it looking a bit forced.

    There's only one way that Solo: A Star Wars Story can end, and we all know what it is. The Millenium Falcon jumps to hyperspace with Han and Chewie Flying, cut to credits. That's the only conceivable conclusion for this movie.

    i don't know what to predict. obviously Han will get the Falcon and will do the Kessel Run and will meet Chewie at some point, but outside of that, who knows? is there much more beyond that?

    full disclosure: i'm not really pumped about this movie. the one trailer we got was ok, but the marketing for this film has been tepid at best. i'm definitely going to go see it, but only because it's Star Wars, not because it looks like an amazing movie in its own right.

    as for Han's relationship with women, i agree that him being a misogynist makes the most sense based on his OT character, but i doubt Disney will play this out, especially in today's climate in regards to women and equality, etc.
