Looks like a fan film to me. It doesn't help that I generally consider prequels of any sort regressive and unnecessary.

Between this and how tedious I found 'The Last Jedi,' my guess is I'm done with 'Star Wars.'

this would be an interesting story if it was in book or comic book form but I'm
afraid doing it on the big screen it's going to be mostly explosions. We'll see.

Just watched the 'official teaser'. The actor isn't pulling off the Harrison Ford vibe. Han is Ford.

To me, it looks...'meh'. Nothing really jumps out as being new or interesting and I place this in the same category as Rogue One, it may be good but I don't really see the need in telling this story.

I remember watching "Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" and I could see Sean Patrick Flanery as a young Indiana Jones. Mannerisms, voice inflections and body movements and such. 

I get zero Han Solo from this guy.

Wondering why Disney didn't hire Anthony Ingruber for this... he actually pulled off playing a young Harrison Ford (Age of Adeline) - this video is much more like how a young Solo should look and act:


I know impressions do not make you an actor, but under the right direction, the kid might've put in a worthy performance. Half the battle is convincing the audience that the actor IS Han Solo.

This guy did that.

-C!

As much as I like the video Ingruber did with the impression, his work in Age of Adeline really pays off. Casting decisions are often made with dozens if not hundreds of variables in play, but it does look as if the makers of Solo missed a sure bet this time.

Kathleen Kennedy and Kershner were both pretty taken with Alden
Ehrenreich during casting. They earned the benefit of the doubt from
me.

That guy does a helluva impression though.

This is pretty neat Harrison Ford was a covert adviser to Solo: A

Ford being an adviser on the film has me a little more interested in seeing it, but I'll still wait until it hits the cheap theater to see it.

I don't agree with making a Han Solo origin/prequel movie, and Alden Ehrenreich, unfortunately, just doesn't have the look or voice down, to make me truly believe that he's a young Solo (the hair comes close, anyway).

However, I do have a little more faith that Kathleen Kennedy, Ron Howard and Lawrence Kasdan (and even George Lucas!) are at least trying to steer this in the right direction.

Much like the Marvel Studios films, it's pretty much the law in our household that I'll have to bring my young son to just about every new STAR WARS film, from now until I drop dead, so I'm hoping it's not a complete waste of time.

It would be nice to be pleasantly surprised by a new STAR WARS movie, for once...

"I know impressions do not make you an actor..."

I don't know. Look at the rack of awards Jamie Foxx got for RAY.
