As I’m writing this, multiple people have dredged up an old Star Wars Questions Thread on Twitter by @TheParkerLuck_. It looks like fun, but I’m choosing to participate in blog format, both for posterity and not to clog up everyone’s feeds. Here we go!

    Expecting it to really branch out into its own thing after TFA’s brilliant but familiar set-up.

    Not really, though nearly every cast and crew member has been a great decision. It’ll turn out good.

  76. What do you expect out of the Han Solo movie?
    A fun romp!
  77. Which character would you like to see cameo in the Han Solo movie?

    All the trailers have been truly excellente. Can’t wait for this film.
  79. What do you think the 2020 stand-alone Star Wars movie is going to be about?

Holy Force, this turned out to be a bigger endeavour than I’d thought. Enjoyed it a lot though!
