Alden Ehrenreich to Play Han Solo


Recommended Posts

I'm remarking over the revisionism of the character. Not whether being for injustice is a good or bad thing.

How much of that "revisionism" is simply stuff that just doesn't match your own pre-conceived notions of Han's backstory (I.e., head canon)?

RACIST

Somewhere in his mansion while smoking a $100 bill, George Lucas is thinking, this is why I sold this shit.

I'm just going to say it. TFA was Chewie's best movie, and I suspect it had something to do with not Peter Mayhew playing him almost everywhere. I never super cared for Chewie either way. If he's in t

The most consistent backstory about Han was that he freed Chewbacca from slavery, which destroyed his imperial career and left him to be a smuggler. In that sense, Leia's saying that would be somewhat accurate.

 

That said, if the description of her eulogy is correct, it also feels instantly dated by present-day concerns.

"Scissorpunch" sounds like a nickname.

Sounds like a finishing button mash combo move from Streetfighter II if you ask me.

He is probably going to be sitting in the background of some bar and have no lines and his name never mentioned.

Now that I think about it...
Therm is probably short for Thermidor.
People typically use scissors to help them eat lobster.

Youre overthinking it, Wicket. Lobster claws open and close in a scissoring manner plus punching you know with hands and this dude has claws for hands.

Wait, why are we overthinking Them Scissorpunch and not talking about L3-37?

Is she going to be "Leet" or "Ell-three", or what? And why are starfighters and 'droids labeled with our alphabet rather than Aurebesh?
