Disney Has Apparently Written Off SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

According to ScreenGeek Disney is not only bracing themselves for Solo: A Star Wars Story to be a critical dud but also prepares itself for it being a bomb. Most apparently due to the lead actor.

And here we go again.

Another day, another Star Wars story. And just like most Star Wars related news recently this one is sure to raise some eyebrows as well. According to an "anonymous source close to the film" the newest entry in the Star Wars franchise titled "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is supposed to be a mess. But read the sources thoughts for yourself:
 

"Disney is bracing themselves for the Han Solo movie to bomb. They were worried about it before all The Last Jedi controversy, but now they’re essentially writing Solo off. The lead actor, Alden Ehrenreich, can’t act, and they had a dialogue coach on hand for all of his scenes. On top of that, the script is unworkable. It’s going to be a car crash."
 

Now, obviously this should be taken with a huge grain of salt. Not only is the source anonymous but also it's doubtfull that Disney would let out any piece of information like that without having their elite-sniper squad informed.

However this information does not come as much of a surprise given recent reports of an acting coach being hired to help Ehrenreich deliver a  believable performance and Howard apparently having reshot over 70% of the movie.

Not only are these reports pretty damning but also some people are adding the lack of promotional material for the movie as further evidence of the movie being already written off.

Remember: this movie is opening in about 5 months. At least a teaser trailer would have been possible to be put out by now, however none in sight so far. Also pictures are rare, we only have Instagram photos, none of wich featuring Ehrenreich (wich further leads people to believe the  rumors about his lacking performance might be true) and no official ones.

What do you think? Will "Solo: A Star Wars Story" bomb? Will it be as divisive as "The Last Jedi"? Or will it be the smash hit Disney isn't expecting?
