It's unimaginative, but I don't think it's bad. 'A Star Wars Story' can be ignored, all the anthologies will have that it's not part of the 'real' title. "Solo" seems fitting enough; it's in the vein of biographical movies that just state their subject's name, and this is reportedly a biographical movie, exploring the backstory of this character more than showing an adventure that sprawls across several components like the other movies.

Oh, they all have "A Star Wars Story." That's okay I guess. It's just kind of bland and nondescript.

I'm fine with just "Solo" I guess--although, that name is blatantly significant in the first place. They almost could've called it "Han."

I'm really curious to see what direction they take with this movie. I'm hoping that they use these "Star Wars Story" movies to experiment with different genres within the Star Wars universe. Just hoping and praying they don't play it safe.

It isn't that earth-shattering of a title, but hey, it will be easy to remember and easy to connect with the story. ;) I really hope the movie ends up being good, because Han Solo is such a great and almost universally beloved character that it will be a shame if they mess it up.

I'm optimistic that it will be at least good, if not great. I will have to see it no matter what, of course! *considers breaking out her classic Han Solo avatar*

They were trying to not make it safe and have a hilarious movie, but then Disney was all like, "NO BE LESS FUN!" and they fired the directors that they hired knowing they were known for comedy and hired that bald guy. :(

The original idea for starting this anthology series was exactly that, to allow a way to experiment with different types of movies as one offs. A war movie with Rogue One, a pirate movie with Han Solo and smugglers, a gangster movie with Boba Fett and bounty hunters, etc. That was the idea. How much of the idea actually comes to fruition overall remains to be seen.

I associate that bald guy with comedy, but maybe that's my limited knowledge on the subject. :anxious:

All the changes do make me more worried that it will be a lousy movie. Last minute director changes just don't give much confidence in the whole film-making vision or process.
