In Australia we have a lemon drink called Solo, with the slogan 'Light on the fizz so you can slam it down fast.'

So... I dunno. That's a thing.
It gives people less time to eye it.

I don't think so? But frats aren't a thing here. Also I don't drink, so I'm probably the wrong person to ask :P
FINE

I don't know it's called Solo, I mean clearly he's not gonna be alone if Chewie's going to be there.

Also, he's that one Marvel antihero no one remembers.



Was he called solo because he only had one foot?

And... if it doesn't turn out very good, they can always do a remake and call it Do-over".

It's out in next month?  I thought it was coming out in the fall. 

Trailer looks OK, but there is something off putting about the music, it just doesn't feel like Star Wars.

I think it's the electric guitar, like they are trying to make young Han into James Dean or something.

It looks good enough for me, so I'll definitely be seeing this.

Looks like fun to me. I'm all for stuff set in the good time period.

I'm thinking the music was trailer-specific. Isn't Debney doing the score? With some themes written by Williams? It'll be fine.

(Also, they were going more for a "western" vibe--it twangs just as we see Han setting up for a gunslinger duel.)

Love the new Imperial designs. Mudtrooper looks fantastic, like a cross between the Clone Wars and WWI.
