Is Ron Howard hinting at the appearance of Jedi and Sith in the Solo: A Star Wars Story. If so, are they even needed in this film?
It’s hard to believe that Solo: A Star Wars Story is just over a month away, but here we are with the film nearly within our grasp. After the full-length cinematic trailer and a recent TV Spot, the hype is real for Solo: A Star Wars Story — which appears to be a fun rollercoaster of a movie.
Since Ron Howard took over as director of the project, he’s been active on Twitter, fully embracing his role within a galaxy far, far away. He is genuinely grateful to be apart of this fantastic Star Wars universe.
Ron Howard hasn’t shied away from interacting with fans on Social Media, take this recent Tweet for example, which a fan asks if Jedi and Sith make an appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Ron Howard’s response.
“It’s all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.”
The response from Ron Howard is ambiguous, but is he truly implying that the Force will be prominent within a Solo: A Star Wars Story? Absolutely, not. It appears that he is answering the second the part of the question, regarding Queen of the Dragons herself, Emilia Clarke — Q’ira in the film.
However, Ron Howard wisely is leaving this Tweet up for interpretation, allowing fans to speculate in the meantime. Since we’re Star Wars fans too, why not join the fun in speculating?
Should Jedi and Sith appear in Solo: A Star Wars Story?
Honestly, the appearance of Force-users in this movie are entirely unnecessary. It would indeed feel “Forced” to have Darth Vader show up for no reason at all, just to be in the film. In Rogue One, Darth Vader’s presence was necessary and fit the plot of the story, but in Solo: A Star Wars Story, not so much.

But, if Darth Vader, one of his Inquisitors, or even Darth Sidious himself dropped by, I wouldn’t complain. Han Solo does call the Force a bunch of tricks and nonsense, so he evidently has seen a Force-wielder in action at some point — or at least heard the stories of these rare artifacts.
"“Kid, I’ve flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I’ve seen a lot of strange stuff, but I’ve never seen anything to make me believe there’s one all-powerful force controlling everything. There’s no mystical energy field that controls my destiny.”"
The highest probability is of a surviving Jedi showing up, which opens up the door for Quinlan Vos, whose fate after Order 66 is still in hanging in the balance.
The rogue Jedi’s specialty is going undercover, so he would fit within the underworld scum and villainy brilliantly, without giving himself away.
As much as I would love to see Vos, another Jedi, or even a Sith Lord, I’m okay with them sitting the bench this time around. But, I’m not a complainer and would be pleasantly surprised if one dropped in to say hi.
Solo: A Star Wars Story debuts May 25, worldwide.
