    Now that I've heard him, that's not Han...that's the worst Han solo impersonation I've ever heard.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I won't watch it, I will, if nothing else for Donald Glover as Lando, but I fear they may have fumbled this one worse than Brady in the Superbowl.
    I must agree. I think it was totally within their capability to find someone with a little bit deeper, Harrison Ford-like voice AND someone that can act the part as well! The two aren't mutually exclusive! It would probably have to be an unknown, but that's basically what Harrison was to begin with as he had done almost nil before SW, and was still doing carpentry and reading lines @ the actors trying out for other parts.

    The rest of the teaser looks great, and I'm excited for it --thanks for posting it, LT!

      Yeah, I'm officially worried about the casting/acting/voice.

      They can make up for it, and I'm holding out hope that they do a good job.
      Thanks, Reid!

        I *know* that the explanation about the Maw and how cutting closer to the black holes is hand-wavey regarding the infamous 'parsecs' line (I can't think of the right term for fixing a story retroactively)... but I've always thought it worked well, and I'd be happy to see them illustrate that in this movie.

        For those not familiar... the Maw was a cluster of black holes near Kessel (I don't know about the later revisit Frey is referring to). By saying that the Falcon was able to complete the Kessel run in 14 Parsecs, he's not incorrectly using a unit of distance, it makes sense.... cutting distance off the run by going closer to the black holes would require higher speeds from the ship, as well as ballsy and expert navigation and piloting. It's a good brag.
        The later revisit was in the books with Abelon or whatever the weird darksided entity's name was. There was some alien technology that had transported all of the black holes there or something. I'm vague on it all now it's been a few years since I read it.

          ABELOTH! Riiiiiiight! I had forgotten.

          That story was interesting but really hard to follow.
          Thanks, Reid!

            Yea that was it. I really wanted things to continue past that point and get more story, but that was the year that Disney bought it and nerfed the EU. I'm still salty about the EU because I really enjoyed some of the newer stories.

            More than that, I loved the Cade Skywalker comics set 100ish years in the future and would have loved to see the stories that led up to that played out a little more.

              I've moved on past my feelings of pain regarding the legends canon, and I consider it a fair trade for all the new content we get now in the mediums we're getting them. Additionally, they've shown that they're not completely just ignoring everything, by bringing in some things like Thrawn, and now potentially the Maw.

              Now I'm just upset at the state of the videogames we're (not) getting.

              Legends canon is still there. It's a separate timeline as far as I'm concerned, but they're not ruined. We're just getting new stories in a different timeline.

              I've heard tiny bits about the comics you're referring to... I wonder if there's any good full book sized collections of that story. I don't have time/patience for clutter to get back into comic collecting, but I'd love to read that... off to Google...
              Thanks, Reid!
