The Han Solo Movie HEY, CHRISTOPHER MILLER, PHIL LORD, LAWRENCE AND JON KASDAN... YOUR MOVIE BETTER INCLUDE ALL THIS STUFF!
Harrison Ford is being replaced by a younger model. But will we see him flying the Falcon?
TWO HANS ARE BETTER THAN ONE
1 Two words turned up in your replies more than any other: Harrison Ford. But how to crowbar the actor in, given that thing that happened (look, there’s probably still one person who’s somehow not seen it…)? Maybe he could feature in some kind of framing device, as @Johnphantom explains. “It should start with Harrison Ford as the older Han Solo in a bar (maybe after Luke went into hiding, but before The Force Awakens) getting drunk with Chewie and reflecting on his life.”
2 mark Lloyd was just one of many who are keen to see the momentous coming together of two icons (the other being an incomprehensible walking carpet). “The first meeting with Chewie!”
THE KESSEL RUN
3 The Millennium Falcon made it in “less than 12 parsecs” – confusing the hell out of everyone who knows that a parsec is a measure of distance, not time. But what is it, exactly*? Some kind of race? anthony Jones is one of those eager to get some answers. “Kessel Run! Anything else and you’re wasting our time!” (*Psst: we actually already know. According to AC Crispin’s Han Solo books of the late-’90s, it’s a smuggling route. But are those still considered canon?)
4 You just can’t get enough of familiar faces from the original trilogy, it seems. david Bickerstaff spoke for many when he said, “more Jabba the Hutt, more of his feud with Greedo, more Boba Fett”.
HOLD SOME BACK
5 In opposition to much of the above, Lee harrison made the case for saving Han’s smuggling hi-jinx for another film further down the line – come on, they’re not just going to make one Solo movie. “The only elements that we need right now are a rebellious kid, a Wookiee and a flying hamburger!”
