    From everything I have read, there was no effort put into trying to make Alden mimic Ford. The idea they were working towards from the get go was the "Chris Pine as Captain Kirk" model of making the role his own entirely.
    I understand what you're saying, but don't the new Star Trek movies deal with alternate time lines? I've never been a Star Trek fan, so forgive my ignorance. I always thought the new movies were an alternate reality and Pine's Kirk wasn't ever supposed to reflect Shatner's because he's on a different path. Which also gives them an opportunity to go forward in a new direction without fans being hellbent because the new Kirk's future is unknown. That's not the case with Solo, as far as I can tell.

    You say you can't get on a high horse. And yet that is precisely what you've done.
    It’s a medium height horse. The one difference being I reserve hate for after I’ve actually seen it.

    I don't know. I'm going to this but my OCD will be constantly reminding me that LP Solo is not much taller than an Ewok, ten years before ANH.

    Um, Moo, does "LP" stand for "Lilliputian"?

    Of course I'll see it. I got my ticket at 5 after midnight when they went on sale. I'm pessimistic, based on all the evidence thus far, but maybe I'll find something in there I like.

    Hope springs eternal.
    If they can at least get Chewie right, that should be one plus right there.

    Yes, but so far I'm not liking what I see or hear.

    Chewie is coming off with a Chaka vibe from the clips I've seen.

    That's a high-SWIQ observation.

    Clearly we have Clint's brother Ron to blame.

    Chaka - friend to Will, Holly and Marshall; enemy of the Sleestak, while loyal...comes off as annoying and just a doofus. The Solo Wookie, just gives me a Chewbacca-Lite/Chaka vibe from the clips I've seen, and you know what I just realized?! He's smaller than the original actor who played our beloved hero, Chewbacca as well. Dammit Disney! Damn you all to hell!

    Alden's looking pretty tough in this photo with Chewie... though his hair is getting a bit long to look like Han.

    You do realize that we get a bit shorter with age, right? Anthony Ingruber is probably the exact height of Ford in his Solo days.
