I feel the same... as you know.Reverend Strone wrote:Gotta say, this is the first announcement of new SW media that I’m not jumping with excitement about. Maybe I am being too conservative and should lighten up? I don’t know. I just wonder if this a story we need to be shown or is it cooler leaving Han’s younger years and his meeting with Chewie (which surely this must feature) mysterious? Is there the risk we could be overexposing Han a bit? It’s a huge universe and there are so many stories we could explore. Kasdan’s involvement lends reason for optimism, but they could still mess it up. I’d almost rather they went with an animated tv show and told some stories akin to the Brian Daly novels about Han’s early smuggling career than recast such an iconic character in a live action feature. A switch to animation and shorter stories might at least make the recasting more easily digested and allow them to strike a different tone with it, but a live-action feature film? I don’t know. I’m a little wary of this one possibly being a misstep.
Anyhow, initial doubts and reservations aside, it also has the potential for awesomeness, so I’m hopeful.
So long as they don't cast Aaron Paul, I'll be happy.
Go with an unknown, someone who can ape Harrison, then it might work.
