The cover for TLJ's novelisation was released at NYCC. I'm surprised they went with the teaser poster over whatever they've come up with for the theatrical.

I'm still not sold on the idea of a Han Solo movie, but Ron Howard sure seems to be enjoying himself.

That's the best part of watching Ron Howard's photo tour since he joined in, it looks like he's loving every minute of it.

But some of the pictures are giving me the worry that the Han Solo movie might be like the opening of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: here's how he got the whip, the scar, the hat, etc. Like everything clicks in this one single adventure rather than being gradual over his life.

It's definitely a valid concern. I don't think Kasdan wouldn't approach this movie with the aim of revealing everything about Han though. We're going to get some of that - how he met Chewie for example - but I'd be surprised if it spells out everything about Han. This quote from a while ago reassured me a bit:

“It will not be, 'Here’s where he was born and this is how he was raised.' I think what it will be is what was he like 10 years earlier—maybe a little earlier, you’ll get a glimpse. But Kurosawa once said the heroes are the ones that are still changing and the villains are locked and petrified into what they are, and Harrison embodies in Force Awakens someone who is still not settled on who he is.”

He will definitly get the Falcon in this movie. So the only thing left would be the Kessel Run and maybe how he got his blaster.

That's definitely reassuring. I'll be happy if there's some recognizable stuff, but hopefully not everything, like the vest, the blaster, the Falcon, Chewie, learning how to hide under the floor, all that kind of stuff. Some will be cool, but if it's everything, then it'll be worrying.

I wonder when we might get a trailer. Will they toss it onto The Last Jedi, since it'd only be six months out?

I think they referenced the Kessel mines in one or two of his photos. And one of the most recent ones was Han's blaster sitting on a console. I spoilered them just in case, but they're in Ron Howard's pictures, so I don't think they're really spoilers at that point.

The Falcon's a no-brainer and as Kevin said, it looks like the Kessel mines will feature in some capacity. Personally I don't really mind them fleshing out things like this. I was more concerned they'd go into too much of his past like 'here's his parents, here's how he was bullied when he was a kid, here's how he made his blaster out of tin foil and some odd nuts and bolts etc'. I think Kasdan's wise enough not to go too far down that rabbit hole.

I think we're basically guaranteed to see how he met Chewie, got the Falcon, and did the Kessel Run. He may already know Lando beforehand though.

So its the opening of The Last Crusade. What a stupid idea to cram all of this stuff into the span of a movie.

Last Crusader crammed all of it into those first fifteen or so minutes and still pulled it off.

I like the sound of this (for reference, the Twitter user is a mod at TFN who is at NYCC right now):

Jason Fry would love to write Kylo, an inverse hero's journey about someone trying to be a villain. And he got to do that in the TLJ book.

According to Manabyte we should definitely be getting the poster tomorrow and the tickets Monday. Disney got mad at the Reddit leak and threatened to push the ticket sales back to show AMC who's boss but he thinks the sales will still happen.

Raiders is definitely my favorite, even a top five of all time for me, though Last Crusade is definitely the more fun film.

That would punish the fans more than AMC, since the rumors have us hoping for it now.

The biggest question about the Han Solo movie for me is will R2-D2 and C-3PO have a cameo? If not, it will be the first Star Wars movie they don't appear in.

I'd agree that Raiders is still the best, but I love the chemistry between Ford and Connery. It papers over many of the film's cracks for me. After the darker Temple of Doom it definitely felt like Spielberg and Lucas just wanted to make something that was really good fun again.

If Luke dies in TLJ, there is a 0% chance of him not coming back as a ghost in IX unless Mark himself dies.

Considering how bad Carrie's death was I don't know if I could even handle Mark dying.
