With Han being my favourite SW character, I'm genuinely excited about this film. That being said, I share exactly the same concern as you Strone. I guess it's all going to come down to the execution. If told in the right spirit, this could be the opportunity to present a really fun tale that adds further depth to of one of the world's most lovable rogues. I can't help but think of the first 20 minutes of The Last Crusade
and imagine how great it'd be to get a similar treatment for Solo.
The involvement of the Kasdan duo is what's keeping me hopeful. I'm not as familiar with Miller and Lord, but The Lego Movie
had a lot of heart, and was a great deal of fun - and those are two qualities that I hope the Solo film would have in spades.
