Solo...A Trailer's Story

The parade of suck that is Lucasfilm continues it's march with Solo A Star Wars Story.

It's the story of a petty criminal who is such a loser he can't tell when he's won, throws away his family and rank as a general to return to a life of petty crime is finally murdered by his (presumably) only son.

Who wouldn't want to see the start of a story where you already know the ending is a tragedy?

I have no idea how Kathleen Kennedy still has job, other than Bob Iger doesn't want to admit he made a gigantic mistake in giving her the keys to the Deathstar.

Redlettermedia dropped this one over the weekend.


And now compare it to the actual teaser that was just dropped tonight.



Well in terms of actual predictions they didn't do so well.  The Millenium Falcon, Lando and Chewbacca were about it.  Although I'm pretty sure we were looking at the "spice mines of Kessel," at one point.

Yet in big picture terms they got it right.  This thing is a retread consisting entirely of fan chum.  There is nothing original here.  Solo was a bad idea from the start because nobody wants to see a prequel, at most they just think they do but it's never going to be satisfying because you know how the story ends.

UPDATE:

File this under whoops.  Actual trailer has been dropped. Turns out they got it almost completely right.

Why is the interior of the Falcon so clean? It was already a multi-owner hand me down when Lando got it. Oh wait, none of that material is "real" anymore. Looks like this is shaping up to be the 2nd Star Wars movie that I will not see.
