Han Solo Fun Fact Number 1
Han and the Millennium Falcon were destined to be together. Although it’s wildly known that Han was not the original owner of the Falcon, he was clearly destined to end up with her. Why is that? Well because both Han and the Falcon come from the same planet.
This doesn’t sound like much, but considering how massive the galaxy is, it can’t be a coincidence that they are both from the same world. It can only be destiny.
Han Solo Fun Fact Number 2
Star-Lord wouldn’t be Star-Lord if it wasn’t for Han. The Guardians of the Galaxy leader would be a much different person if it wasn’t for out Nerf Herder as Chris Pratt has openly confessed that he drew inspiration from the Star Wars legend.
Han Solo Fun Fact Number 3
Han is not Han in France. He is Yan. Now almost every Star Wars character went through a name change when making it overseas; C-3P0 was renamed Z6P0, for example. However, changing Han to Yan is not only mildly amusing to think about; Yan the Scruffy Nerf Herder just makes you giggle for some reason; but it is also hilarious because you can’t help but wonder what was the point? Han to Yan, seems a bit lazy really. Do the French struggle to say Han or something?
Han Solo Fun Fact Number 4
Han almost didn’t feature in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Why? Well, it wasn’t because Harrison Ford was unsure about coming back to the franchise, but because Han was almost killed off in Return of the Jedi; and by Ewoks of all things?!?!?
