It looks like there’s no stopping Star Wars, not only is The Force Awakening coming out in December, but now there’s going to be a Han Solo origins story in the mix as well.
I’m not sure how I feel about all this. Star Wars was my childhood along with Star Trek, and JJ Abrams (who I love since he’s created some of my fave shows like Alias, Lost and Fringe) managed to ruin Star Trek with his 2 films. It’s not that they were bad, it’s just that they weren’t Star Trek. Abrams blew up Vulcan, made Spock have a relationship with Uhura, when that was really only hinted at a romance in the show. It also made none fans think that they knew Star Trek because of the film. That’s just not okay.
I’m worried that he’ll take the same liberties with Star Wars, and if that happens I may cry in the theatre. No joke.
This Han Solo film is supposed to look at “how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.” according to Vanity Fair. Doesn’t sound too horrible..gulp! I’m so nervous, can you tell?
I shall try to go into this with an open mind, and as such, dream up the perfect men to step into the shoes of the legendary Han Solo, arguably one of the best characters in film ever. And sorry guys, I’m sure Chris Pratt or Chris Pine would do an amazing job, but I think that they’re just a tad too old for the role. #SorryNotSorry
