Han Solo was saved from being a Comedy...

Yup, you read right... The Directors who left/were forced to leave, depends on who you ask... were making a Comedy out of the Han Solo movie. The dude Playing Han Solo complained about it to Lucasfilm and they went and replaced the director with

Yes, Little Ronny Howard is Directing...
Sure, he may have done The Grinch with Ace Ventura as the titular character, but he also did the Dan Brown movies with Forrest Gump playing Robert Langdon.

This inspires me some hope, if I'm allowed to be honest. This is one of the "anthology side stories" that I'm interested in seeing. Bobba Fett would be interesting. As much as I love big bad Daddy Vader, I think that we do not need ANOTHER movie of him... We already have 7 movies of Darth Vader. As long as we don't get Jar Jar: a Star Wars Story... I'm cool


My only issue is Star Wars oversaturation and fatigue, since we can now do "side stories" Heck we can even go to prequels BEYOND the prequels and telling stories from Knights of the Old Republic. No, it's not a reference to the PC game.

Maybe the 4th Time is the Charm?

20th Century Fox WILL NOT surrender the First Family to Marvel... You know...

Yo On an outer space adventure, dey gots hit by cosmic rays. da four would change forever in da most fantastic ways. nahh need ta fear dey're here! Just page da four, Fantastic Four! Ya' dig?

After the Enormous Success that was Fant4stic...

Fox decided that they WILL Try again...

This time, they're going to look at Disney's The Incredibles as a source.

Here's a novel idea: Look at the Classic Comics, and Fantastic Four Cartoons... Except the one where Johnny Storm looked like Benimaru Nikaido... Hell, The Roger Corman Movie is the most Fantastic Four, uh, actual Fantastic Four Movie ever made.

I have an issue with this statement:
Apparently this new take will focus on telling the story through the eyes of the children of Reed and Sue Richards, Franklin and Valeria Richards, but Human Torch and Thing will be present as well. 
Yeah, no... That would be way too Incredibles or even worse...

Spy Kids... and yes, That specific scene was chosen on purpose for obvious reasons.

It COULD be good if... wait... they have the writer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the Lego Batman movie, and Beetlejuice 2?
Oh, boy this seems like very hit or miss... Leaning too much towards comedy could make this the next

 I'm afraid, VERY afraid...
