    What an eloquent and intelligent person he seems to be. I'm impressed. I'm sure his size was not the only reason he got that part. I hope this helps skyrocket his international career.

    But but he’s been in the Star Wars movies before.... interviewer didn’t do his homework

    It’s like the interviewer didn’t know Joonas was in 2 Star Wars movies before solo until halfway through the interview

    I have now found the impossible! A comment section on a video on Star Wars where no one is trying to insult Disney it constantly say rian Johnson should be hanged

      C. Tyrell I don’t think he’s that bad. I liked the last jedi, even though they did do a bunch of different screw ups and there are some things that should have been changed I still enjoyed the film

      Nyan Johnson had nothing to do with this movie. (He should be hanged)

      And Chewie probably doesn't think it's weird!
      It's not like he wears clothes the rest of the time...

    Ill bet Peter did the sitting scenes and Joonas did the rest (Force Awakens). Peter cant walk very well now.

      Wise Guy4U That’s how it was in TFA, but Solo is entirely Joonas. I don’t remember if Peter is in TLJ, but that’s mostly Joonas too.
