I would really like to see a movie about Han Solo's past. It could be called the Kessel Run.
I can't imagine it as a workable title since it's so specific that only the diehards would know what it means. For example, I knew it was a reference to the Falcon's speed but not the specifics.

Anyway, apparently they've narrowed down the Han actors for the prequel to: Alden Ehrenreich, Jack Reynor, and Taron Egerton. Who? Who? And who?

I'd like to see how they explain how Han & Chewie hooked up. And i wonder if they'll show the circumstances in which Han got Falcon from Lando.
Han and Chewie hooked up?

:scared:

And all this time we thought Chewie was a dude.
He is. And they did.
Chicks dig the hair. And so did Han.

It's a Star Wars movie. We are all die hards!

I'm living proof that we're not all die hards. I really liked the original & Empire, liked Return of the Jedi & Force Awakens, disliked Clones & Sith, and despised Phantom Menace. I've seen all the originals multiple times but I can't name more than a dozen characters outside of the main guys. I couldn't tell you anything about the Kessel Run besides it involves the Falcon going fast and it was Han who did it. I'd say I'm fairly typical. And I can't say that that's "die hard". What's hard to understand about that?

What's hard to understand about the fact that you will totally want to see this movie if it is done well?
That's not my point.
My only point is : nobody outside of die-hards will know what the Kessel Run is AND not everyone who likes Star Wars is a die hard. You probably didn't catch that because you're still fixated on Bowl's mum.

Danny Elfman could do the music.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Wedge Antilles Rogue one?  The girl in this new movie seems to be going after the original death star plans does that mean Wedge comes later???

Oh man no not with the Danny Elfman. I got tired with the "boo boo boo bee bee bee" quirky dark musical soundtracks the first thousand times he did them

Had to look up Wedge just to make sure who it was...found that the actor who portrayed him is, coincidentally, Ewan McGregor's maternal uncle. Kind of funny that in the real universe, Wedge is Obi-Wan's uncle.

To answer your question, it didn't mention that he was Rogue one. It just said that he was part of the Rogue squadron in Empire.

Also, the actor was asked to reprise his role for Force Awakens but he didn't want to do it, said it would've "bored" him.

I love Danny Elfman. Not on the same level as John Williams when it comes to soundtracks but who is? At any rate, he's very talented and the founder of one of my favorite bands.

According to a website called "wookipedia" he was "rogue 3" in the battle of Hoth when he flew against the ATATs.
http://starwars.wiki.../Wedge_Antilles
This was after the original Death Star. Rogue One takes place before Episode 4 so it takes place before Wedge Antilles becomes rogue 3.

All his soundtrack stuff from Batman onwards sounds the same to me. It's no wonder Tim Burton would continue to work with him for many years as all of his work seems the same to me too.

I had Dead Man's Party when that album was new. But I only liked a few songs off of it. BUT it was better than any of his soundtrack stuff IMHO.

I will add that I think his work on Pee Wee's Big Adventure fit perfectly though.

He's done a ton of soundtracks. I sort of agree with you about the Tim Burton stuff, but I don't think that defines him. He even wrote the Simpson's theme.

To this day, the most entertaining concerts I've ever attended were Oingo Boingo concerts. I almost died in a mosh pit at one. :) I love Oingo Boingo and I have ever since Only a lad. Their music is so energetic and fun and I really like the ska influenced horn section. I think Elfman is one of the most talented musicians of our time.

And who doesn't like little girls?

It's a Star Wars movie. We are all die hards!

I'm living proof that we're not all die hards. I really liked the original & Empire, liked Return of the Jedi & Force Awakens, disliked Clones & Sith, and despised Phantom Menace. I've seen all the originals multiple times but I can't name more than a dozen characters outside of the main guys. I couldn't tell you anything about the Kessel Run besides it involves the Falcon going fast and it was Han who did it. I'd say I'm fairly typical. And I can't say that that's "die hard". What's hard to understand about that?

What's hard to understand about the fact that you will totally want to see this movie if it is done well?
That's not my point.
My only point is : nobody outside of die-hards will know what the Kessel Run is AND not everyone who likes Star Wars is a die hard. You probably didn't catch that because you're still fixated on Bowl's mum.
I still think it would be a cool name. Those who don't know what it is will have to see the movie to find out.

Danny Elfman could do the music.


Oh man no not with the Danny Elfman. I got tired with the "boo boo boo bee bee bee" quirky dark musical soundtracks the first thousand times he did them
I love Danny Elfman. Not on the same level as John Williams when it comes to soundtracks but who is? At any rate, he's very talented and the founder of one of my favorite bands.
All his soundtrack stuff from Batman onwards sounds the same to me. It's no wonder Tim Burton would continue to work with him for many years as all of his work seems the same to me too.

I had Dead Man's Party when that album was new. But I only liked a few songs off of it. BUT it was better than any of his soundtrack stuff IMHO.
He's done a ton of soundtracks. I sort of agree with you about the Tim Burton stuff, but I don't think that defines him. He even wrote the Simpson's theme.

To this day, the most entertaining concerts I've ever attended were Oingo Boingo concerts. I almost died in a mosh pit at one. :) I love Oingo Boingo and I have ever since Only a lad. Their music is so energetic and fun and I really like the ska influenced horn section. I think Elfman is one of the most talented musicians of our time.

And who doesn't like little girls?


Yeah I know he's done tons. The Simpsons theme and Pee Wee's Big Adventure work for me for whatever reason...but Batman sounded too much like Simpsons to me. Too cartoony for something that was supposed to be a dark movie. At the time I DID like it though.

Not sure Elfman fits in the Star Wars music world. Who knows? Maybe it could work.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Wedge Antilles Rogue one?  The girl in this new movie seems to be going after the original death star plans does that mean Wedge comes later???
Had to look up Wedge just to make sure who it was...found that the actor who portrayed him is, coincidentally, Ewan McGregor's maternal uncle. Kind of funny that in the real universe, Wedge is Obi-Wan's uncle.

To answer your question, it didn't mention that he was Rogue one. It just said that he was part of the Rogue squadron in Empire.

Also, the actor was asked to reprise his role for Force Awakens but he didn't want to do it, said it would've "bored" him.

According to a website called "wookipedia" he was "rogue 3" in the battle of Hoth when he flew against the ATATs.
http://starwars.wiki.../Wedge_Antilles
This was after the original Death Star. Rogue One takes place before Episode 4 so it takes place before Wedge Antilles becomes rogue 3.
I need some kind of chart or bracket to keep up with the timelines and characters :lol:

Pretty sure with the extra cash I'd find something to excite me, you know like travel or jumping out of a perfect good air plane.

I would really like to see a movie about Han Solo's past. It could be called the Kessel Run.
I can't imagine it as a workable title since it's so specific that only the diehards would know what it means. For example, I knew it was a reference to the Falcon's speed but not the specifics.

Anyway, apparently they've narrowed down the Han actors for the prequel to: Alden Ehrenreich, Jack Reynor, and Taron Egerton. Who? Who? And who?

I'd like to see how they explain how Han & Chewie hooked up. And i wonder if they'll show the circumstances in which Han got Falcon from Lando.
