We continue with more Easter eggs from Solo: A Star Wars Story

Donald Glover proves in spades that Lando Calrissian deserves his very own Star Wars standalone film. 

Oseon system, from the Lando Calrissian Adventures novels, is referenced.

Sharu is a species from the Lando Calrissian Adventures, seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story

StarCave, from the Lando Calrissian Adventures, also gets a nod.

Si’Klaata Cluster, which is part of Hutt space, is included within the Kessel run.

The Maw, a cluster of dangerous black holes, is also part of the hazardous Kessel run.

Qi’ra says she knows the martial arts practice of Teras Kasi, referencing

Beckett mentions Savareen brandy, an alcoholic beverage of choice in many Star Wars Legends novels.

  • The disguise Beckett uses on Kessel is the same one donned by Lando in Jabba’s Palace in Return of the Jedi. 
  • Tatooine is referenced twice, hinting we’ll likely see more Han Solo adventures on that desolate backwater world.

    Colo clawfish,  seen in the Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in the Gungan swamps of Naboo and eaten by Dryden Vos in Solo: A Star Wars Story as a delicacy.

  • Darth Maul, who impressively survived his injuries suffered at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi many moons ago, reemerges. Believe it or not, he’s been alive for a while, with fantastic story arcs seen in both Star Wars animated series (The Clone Wars and Rebels).
  • Dathomir is referenced, which we are introduced to in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and see again later in the novel New Dawn and Star Wars Rebels.

    The Fertility Idol seen on Dryden’s personal quarters is from Indiana Jones. 

  • A giant Sith Holocron is seen with Vos also, which we learn from the Solo: A Star Wars Story visual guide is meant as an upcoming gift for Maul.
  • Han shoots first, killing Beckett in their third-act showdown
