    Well, if the Empire might have a presence, not a shock the Rebels might (though I'm not sure of the timeline and thus if the Rebels are formed yet).

    Bettany teases he's playing a 'very cool intergalactic gangster'.

    With the Disney-Fox deal about to close I'd like Disney to use 20th Century Fox for its PG-13 and up movies even co-branding with Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios on some releases so I'd love for this to be the first Star Wars movie under 20th Century Fox since Episode III.

    Bummer. But I hope they're wrong.

    That is disappointing. However, it is kinda expected as those original shoots was now just wasted money. The reshoots and just hiring Howard is crazy expensive at this point. We're talking probably at least $50 million in reshoots alone.

    I'm not at all surprised that Disney doesn't have high hopes for it. I'd argue that doing a Han Solo movie is questionable by itself (especially one that doesn't involve Harrison Ford or Billy Dee Williams), but the news of the reshoots leave little to the imagination. Really, I'm shocked that they didn't push the movie back to next Christmas. May 2018 is less than a year after Ron Howard took the job, we have news that he reshot most of the pre-existing footage along with the stuff that wasn't shot, he had no time to craft the movie into his vision while filming, and he's expected to crank out a masterpiece in eleven months? I don't think much can be done to save the movie, but I have no clue why they wouldn't move it to December and give Howard more time. I've also seen plenty of buzz that the script is bad. If that's true, than the movie is pretty much DOA in terms of quality. Hopefully Disney learns some lessons about handling Star Wars in the future.

    I can't be excited for this, because after I felt lukewarm about Rogue One I feel like the whole "Star Wars Story" saga isn't interesting for me as a whole and I really don't need to know how Han Solo got his name. Glover will probably be the standout performance at least.
