With Solo: A Star Wars Story just months away now, rumors surface that an infamous Star Wars villain will return to a galaxy far, far away.
A wild rumor’s surfaced that a famous villain from the Star Wars Original trilogy will make their triumphant return in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Rumblings of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and even Quinlan Vos are making a bit of noise over the past year.
It’s possible that the trio still may pop up in Solo: A Star Wars Story, especially the legendary bounty hunter. However, it appears that a particular “wonderful human being” will return — one whom Han Solo owes a substantial amount of money to, after dropping his cargo upon getting boarded.
"“It’s a huge secret, but Jabba is returning to the Star Wars universe. Fans will learn why Han ended up owing him so much money.”"
Also, Academy Award-winning visual effects master Ben Morris, who worked on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, states that:
"“Jabba the Hutt would be a good guess. If I say any more I will get into trouble.”"

The OG, the original (Hutt) gangsta himself is set to return to a galaxy far, far away, according to The Sun out of the UK, who apparently have insider access to someone involved with the film.
Now, we have to take these rumors with a grain of sand (I hate sand), but it makes perfect sense for the vile gangster to return. Jabba the Hutt MUST be in a film about Han Solo. It would feel out of place if he wasn’t in it, to be quite honest.
It’s evident throughout the original films that Han Solo and Jabba the Hutt have a history that goes way back. Jabba even calls Han “his boy,” and is rather fond of the scoundrel — until he tremendously disappoints the Hutt.
Learning how that goes down on the big screen would be epic, and also means we are likely to see Boba Fett — among other bounty hunters. We can only hope!
Thank the Maker, we are nearly two months away from the film’s release, and it cannot arrive soon enough.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theatres May 25, 2018, worldwide.
