15. Han Solo tries to get Ben to return
Movie: Episode VII – The Force Awakens
Characters involved: Han Solo, Kylo Ren
Han Solo emerged as a core figure in the Rebellion’s fight against the Empire. He served various missions throughout the original trilogy and truly made a difference. Despite being considered a smuggler, Han grew into an admirable figure among the galaxy.
In the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, Han and Leia had a child together named Ben. When the pair lost their son to the dark side, Han fell into his old ways as a smuggler. It wasn’t until he met Rey and Finn did he make it back to Leia and the Resistance. Han agreed to assist the Resistance in destroying Starkiller Base by infiltrating the planet holding the superweapon.
Han, along with Finn and Chewbacca, traveled to the base and successfully demanded that Captain Phasma lower the defense shields. While there, the group also rescued Rey. Han also came face to face with his son, now going by the name Kylo Ren.
As promised to Leia, he tried to get his son to leave the dark side behind and come back to them. Han revealed that Snoke would eventually kill Kylo, but he doesn’t listen. Han was killed by Kylo even though he was just trying to do the right thing by protecting his son.
