Pity Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors got retconned out, though some of the characters look to be acceptable replacements.

A lot of Star Wars fans seem to believe that the main character in this is inspired by Jan Ors. Her name is even really close: Jyn Erso. Similar to how Ben Solo/ Kylo Ren is totally a combination of Luke and Mara Jade's kid (Ben Skywalker) and Anakin Solo.

If this is how they're going to reuse the Legends stuff I'm a-ok with it. As soon as you DO have a character named Kyle Katarn or Jan Ors you'll have vocal fanboys declaring that "this better mean that <terrible idea> is also part of the lore!" There's no need to pull the actual character names and all the baggage they'll have into the world.

I'm hoping for a character called Kyle Thrawn.  He will be a tactically brilliant Jedi who also really fucking gets art.

And blue.

Wash does not seem at all like Han Solo to me.

Cocky quippy pilot of a somewhat run down smuggler spaceship?  Yeah no similarities whatsoever.   awesome, for real  Although I'll grant that Wash is a very dorky version of the trope whereas Han is more suave.

Oh come on. Nathan Fillion was Han Solo. He could pilot, but more importantly he was the antiestablishment leader smuggler pirate. Wash doesn't really have a close analogy. Maybe Nien Nunb, but in canon we kinda don't know anything about him.

I think Wash could be more like Wedge or in the new movie Poe Dameron.  However Mal definitely isn't the Pilot that Han was.

Right, but that's what I was thinking too--Han Solo is not the dude who pilots for someone else, whatever else he is.

Chewie is actually the pilot.

Naw, Chewie was the pilot.  He just was just humoring Han and let Han think what he wanted.  But Chewie was in control.

Chewie doesn't sit in the correct seat to be pilot. I have never met a pilot who would be willing to sit on the right unless acting as copilot. Not even for a life debt.

The shadowy darthy looking guy is going to be the Emperor's new apprentice Snoke before Darth Vader fucks him up when the Emperor tells him to kill Vader and take his place.

Also, creepy as fuck Mark Hamill it the little interview thing at the end. This sums it up perfectly.

Oh, Hamill is brilliant there. Watch that follow-up video that's linked from the trailer.

Mark's a funny motherfucker.

At it's core, Rogue One still fits the action genre and you just can't have a super grimdark action movie or it'll feel like a slog just to watch.  I mean they could definitely go overboard and lighten the tone too much but I'm cautiously optimistic that they are just trying to avoid Snyderizing star wars.

That and it's Disney so they're likely aiming for PG/ soft PG-13. The darkest movie has been Revenge of the Sith, and nothing is going to be darker than that with the slaughter of first graders and the onscreen murder of a 15/ 16 year-old.

The Vader scene was described as "very dark and brutal" more befitting a hard PG-13 into R movie. No way that was going to fly.

That said, yeah, there's reshoots. No big surprise, as has been pointed out with other movies they reshoot/ re-edit almost up until the day of release now. Think of it as Day-0 patches for games. Digital distribution has altered workflows such that deadlines are closer to release dates now. Humanity generally works to deadlines, we're short-sighted that way. why so serious?
