    "How to Train Your Dragon" composer set to score "Han Solo":

    For the rumor mill; both Spenser Wilding (Darth Vader in Rogue One) and Warwick Davis (Return of the Jedi) might just be filming for Han Solo:

    So both an Ewok and Vader might show up in this. I wonder if this has been a very late addition or was always planned.

    I love Vader, but part of me hopes he doesn't appear. I don't want him to become overused.

    Warwick Davis made cameos in Phantom Menace, Force Awakens and Rogue One, playing a different character each time. His involvement is far from confirmation that the Ewoks will appear. As for Vader, I guess time will tell.

    That is very true. Davis has made a career out of playing different kinda characters, so I'm up for whatever he's doing this time.

    Love Warwick as he steals about every single scene when he is on.

    8/9: Glover describes the director switch as jarring and at the time he felt like the younger child in a divorce and didn't know much of the details.

    8/10: Howard posts pic of him checking a camera move.

    8/16: Howard hints the Empire will have a presence.

    8/22: Michael K Williams role was cut because he could not make it to reshoots due to working on other projects, one in Africa.

    8/23: Based on a LEGO toy, the name of the movie may be "Han Solo: A Star Wars Story" after all.

    Emilia Clarke's character might be named Kira or Kura.

    I'm kinda both curious and dismayed about Williams. I suspect he was Bane. As for the title I still miss anthology.

    Curiouser and curiouser. I do wonder if this is a vfx mocap performance. Then, not sure either actor was experienced in that. Except Bettany maybe a little.

    My curiosity lead me to some other articles on Michael K. Williams departure:

    I think his character may have been changed to a human from an alien to save on time.

    That would really annoy me. Especially when they claimed, if I'm not mistaken, no Force-users.

    One of the pros this movie should be is there can be a Star Wars title that doesn't involve the Force.

    No one posted Howard's tweet about the Kessel run:

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/he...-millennium-falcons-famous-kessel-run-1041709

    On this, the hamster in my brain kinda woke up after awhile. Though I haven't seen his film "Rush", I heard it was very good. If he is filming this, his race scenes might make this worth the price of admission alone. This is a guy who shares affinity for cars and racing with Lucas, who shot the pod racing scene off "Ben Hur" chariot race and "American Graffiti" drag race.[​IMG]
