    Looks like a lot of fun from that trailer. Hoping this is good. You know what.....after The Last Jedi I think no matter what this will be a pleasant surprise.

    The trailer was put together well (They managed to create a high energy montage), but the content feels off.

    Maybe the most animated we've seen Chewy since esb.

    I disagree about Glover. While his visual presence isn't bad, his delivery is as close to Lando's as AE's is to Han's.

    The villain (?) Looks more mad max than Star Wars, and the wild west train thing doesn't fit...

    I dunno, I'm skeptical. But I bet five bucks it's "well received" at the festival though.

    I like the star destroyer being built in the beginning. Lets now hope the movie can be as good as the trailer.

    Totally agree, I donít want to judge his performance on 3 seconds of dialogue, but it felt off. I hope it works.

    Loved seeing Chewie slam a dude.

    And Iím sure Iím in the minority, but I hated the ďIíve got a good feeling about thisĒ line.......

    I'm just not seeing Han Solo in this guy. It's breaking my heart each new peek. There is no presence. Maybe they should have just
    called it Space Pirates and started with new characters.

    I like it. The only thing we're still missing in Disney wars is familiar Droid types and alien species fleshing out the world.

    Thought this looked way better than the teaser that aired during the Super Bowl and I'm a lot more excited about the movie now. Looks like it could just be a really fun sci-fi adventure flick.

    Also, it's nice to see Chewie actually given stuff to do rather than being the glorified extra we saw in TLJ.

    Was ok, the look is first class but the fact that AE exudes none of the qualities that Ford gave the character is a big problem for me, Glover is going to steal it. If the theme of "Have a good feeling about this" and "Push it" is throughout the whole film then it will be a big mistake but time will tell. Still have no intention to run out and see it in the first couple of weeks.

    Hmmmm. Liked a great deal of this , if it didn't exactly have the snap and click of the teaser.

    I'm passed worrying about AE as "Kit Solo" , there were better choices but there may have also been worse ,we'll wait and see. The robot sounded a bit too much like Phasma, and some of the dialogue was very ropey, but Chewie and Lando were way better than I'd hoped and the visuals (as expected) were wonderful and well in line with the same kind of R1 and OT vibe which was absolutely great.

    There definitely look to be three distinct acts, Han as a cadet where it looks like Emilia leads him astray and thus presumably booted out of the Imperials, then the formation of the Firefly gang, whoops , I meant SW train heist team that looks like it goes horribly wrong (Emilia again?????)and then the third ,which is likely the Kessel run, where I'm guessing all the Wookies are rescued (and the Falcon starts to get very dirty, inside and out with the dozens of mucky Wookies crammed into her ). Anybody want to gamble who will be in the MF nose cone when it gets blown off ?


    Overall a great deal to like if not unconditionally love, it looks fun and way better than I had hoped. Again I'm reminded of the R1 "disaster" predictions that proved to be mostly baseless and inaccurate. This is going to be far better and stronger than many of us might have anticipated, despite the worries over AE, the rest of the cast and story may admirably shoulder the bulk of the movie ( though memories of how wrong I was about TLJ still haunt me).

    Without Han and Lando this could be a nice Star Wars movie.

    I'll be seeing it first showing, being the fan I am, but I still have to say I'm really not impressed. This is probably the least excited I have ever been for a Star Wars film, but I would love to be wrong after seeing it.

    Okay, that trailer makes it look to me like Ron Howard is a Firefly fan.

    Not complaining.... Just sayin'...

    This is how I feel as well. I want to like it, but I just can't get on board. I'm not feeling the magic this time. Hopefully I'm wrong and it's great.

    Definately the best this movie has looked so far, dont like the voice of the new droid though. Didnt fit for me at all. Not sure about the Cowboy music at the beginning...... not sure at all. Big scenes for Chewie which is good. I'll still wait till it comes on Sky movies though.

    I'm so conflicted about this. Part of me thinks "Meh, looks like a generic blockbuster. Sassy droid? Yawn. Train-top fight? Snore..." The other part of me thinks "OMG STAR WARS MUST SEEEEEEE!!!!"

    I hope they keep that funky western guitar in the actual film.

    AE is growing on me. Still not sure why the internet is losing its mind over Glover. He's fine. Alden is fine. They are both equally just okay.

    Looks awful and his voice sounds even worse. I cannot listen to that for 2 hours.

    The trailer does not look like fun, it's a mess of horrible dialogue and sassy swaggery everything dipped in Star Wars and trying desperately to look cool. It does not look cool, it looks like a live action cartoon with all the cleverness and appeal of a candy coated dog turd.
