    I'm actually looking forward to seeing what they have in store for Woody. He's a great actor.

    Not surprising. Once you're a fan of the old trilogy then the 'strikes' are probably very common feelings among any age group.

    I didn't mean to insult younger audiences with my comments. I just expect the teens/20s demographic to be a bit less exposed to the old trilogy on average, relative to older audiences. Older audiences have lived through several rounds of the old trilogy being in theaters, and for decades it was the only SW stuff to exist. Whereas younger people grew up with six SW movies + a TV series, and the prequels were the only SW movies to be shown in theaters during your viewing lifetime.

    I'm curious, how accurate are my perceptions about teens/20s people and SW? As in, the non-rabid-SW-fans?
    You got me with the 'rabid-SW-fan' bit You're probably right about everyone else.

    He'd be more fussy than Threepio. Which I didn't previously think was possible.

    I don't need to know everything about a characters past. I'd rather some new side stories in the Vader with new characters in that era. A lot of battles and things were going on then. It might be a good film, the Han Solo one I mean, but the actor doesn't really look the part to me.

    A little earlier for April Fools jokes, isn't it? I guess we can be grateful this insipid idea didn't make it in the films!

    I want to see Vader exterminate all the Jedi. I have read about it, seen it in comics, I want to see the live action movie treatment. If there is anyone from Disney reading these threads, make a movie about Vader kicking ass!

    I saw Alden in Hail Ceasar. Boring movie BTW but he was quite good for only having a smaller role. I can see why they cast him as Han. With the right costume and hair I think he can pull it off. The problem will be the script. It's going to be fan service at it's worst.

    Yeah, I watched Alden in HC and thought he was pretty good. But I also saw him in "Beautiful Creatures". I don't doubt he has some acting talent but more than anything else its his lack of physical presence that hampers him, certainly in comparisson to Ford. He must have turned in one hell of an audition to overcome that immediately obvious natural disadvantage.
    I've also read some of the comments here about Woody H. I really would urge people who might doubt his acting chops to watch some of his later stuff. He is simply brilliant in "True Detectives". And if this is going to be a lighter hearted caper type SW movie then he is pretty damn perfect as Hans older role model (just watch "Seven Psycopaths /Zombieland if you have any doubts ).
    And interestingly, physically Harrelson, though he often looks like a large powerful bloke, is just an inch or so taller than Alden. If you look at the entire cast, which is actually a pretty impressive one overall, it looks like the actors have been cast around Alden to make his height disadvantage disappear, much like they manage to do with many Tom Cruise films.
    Overall, as far as I am concerned this is a bigger risk for Disney/Lucas film than any other they might have chosen to do BUT it also has possibly one of the best chances to deliver a great fun SW movie along the lines of the best Marvel movies.
    But they really need to nail the story .A successful action movie with a good deal of comedy in it is one of the most difficult scripts to write. If they don't deliver one that is completed with strong dialogue and character moments its going to be tough to win over the older SW crowd.
    I remain hopeful though.

    I think they had pretty much decided on Alden before the auditioning process even started.

    That kind of show has become the most cookie-cutter thing on earth right now. Han Solo as a reluctant member of the Avengers? Or as Chris Pratt in GOTG? I'm completely worn out on it already.


    Imagine young Han Solo with a bronze tan & big muscles, in a sleeveless shirt, with a bright-colored hot rod spaceship, saying "I live my life 1/4-parsec at a time." Same principle. I like the F&F movies and that idea still makes me cringe.

    'Fast & Furious Solo' might be fun for 2 hours. There might even be room for that kind of movie somewhere in the SW universe. But it's not what I wanted for a Han solo movie. Same goes for Han & Lando & Chewie being re-imagined as Marvel-type heroes.
