    Ok, I feel like I need to talk about the movie. I've seen it 3 times since it opened and golly gee... I love it. Like, so much. I'm trying to figure out if I can send a 'thank you' card and fruit basket to LFL.

    What did y'all think? Favorite parts? Favorite call out or reference? Favorite new character ... or returning character ;) ?

    Honestly, I was wondering if we could send a thank you card to Ron Howard. I think as a Garrison it would be fun to show our support.
    As for favorite parts, I think that my favorite scene was early on, when Han sees the propaganda posters and the "positive" rendition of the the theme is playing... Awesome little things like that made it a fantastic show.

    The Imperial Army!

    Now the real grunts are canonized. The stormtrooper corps are as elite force of shock troops, but not the Army. Now finally they've on the screen for good.

    I really liked how the Empire was represented in this movie too! We normally see it portrayed in a bad guy light but in Solo it was more of an ancillary thing that didn't really affect the storyline. It was the policing force but not the main baddie that our hero was contending against. I remember a panel that George Lucas was on many years ago at Celebration III. A child got up and asked a question if all the Stormtroopers were bad and George replied, 'no, they just are following a bad man'. We kind of see that in Solo, where all the Imperials are just cogs in the machine and not all inherently evil.

    I know, RIGHT??!!!
    Did you watch Clone Wars? I had friends who are more just casual fans message me seeking an explanation of how Maul was alive. They thought it was a different guy of the same species, or that the movie was placed BEFORE The Phantom Menace in the timeline.

    I’m interested to see how the Quira (sp?) character transforms in the canon. So much potential there based on how the movie ended.

    Slightly, but not entirely off-topic:

    I wonder if the issues surrounding the directors of the Star Wars movies originate from the top—Kathleen Kennedy. When so many directors are let go—and in the case of Solo, after a lot of the shooting had been completed—and replaced, I start looking at the management of the company. She’s the common thread in the directors’ departures. I’m surprised by this, because of her tenure in the SW enterprise.
