TWO HANS ARE BET­TER THAN ONE

1 Two words turned up in your replies more than any other: Har­ri­son Ford. But how to crow­bar the ac­tor in, given that thing that hap­pened (look, there’s prob­a­bly still one per­son who’s some­how not seen it…)? Maybe he could fea­ture in some kind of fram­ing de­vice, as @John­phan­tom ex­plains. “It should start with Har­ri­son Ford as the older Han Solo in a bar (maybe af­ter Luke went into hid­ing, but be­fore The Force Awak­ens) get­ting drunk with Chewie and re­flect­ing on his life.”

FIRST CON­TACT

2 mark Lloyd was just one of many who are keen to see the mo­men­tous com­ing to­gether of two icons (the other be­ing an in­com­pre­hen­si­ble walk­ing car­pet). “The first meet­ing with Chewie!”

THE KES­SEL RUN

3 The Mil­len­nium Fal­con made it in “less than 12 par­secs” – con­fus­ing the hell out of ev­ery­one who knows that a par­sec is a mea­sure of dis­tance, not time. But what is it, ex­actly*? Some kind of race? an­thony Jones is one of those ea­ger to get some an­swers. “Kes­sel Run! Any­thing else and you’re wast­ing our time!” (*Psst: we ac­tu­ally al­ready know. Ac­cord­ing to AC Crispin’s Han Solo books of the late-’90s, it’s a smug­gling route. But are those still con­sid­ered canon?)

CLASSIC CHAR­AC­TERS

4 You just can’t get enough of fa­mil­iar faces from the orig­i­nal tril­ogy, it seems. david Bick­er­staff spoke for many when he said, “more Jabba the Hutt, more of his feud with Greedo, more Boba Fett”.

HOLD SOME BACK

5 In op­po­si­tion to much of the above, Lee har­ri­son made the case for sav­ing Han’s smug­gling hi-jinx for an­other film fur­ther down the line – come on, they’re not just go­ing to make one Solo movie. “The only el­e­ments that we need right now are a re­bel­lious kid, a Wook­iee and a fly­ing ham­burger!”
