Solo: A Star Wars Story has been Disney Studios’ most closely guarded secret. Not even Avengers: Infinity War has seen so much secrecy the way the Mouse House is handling Solo: A Star Wars Story. The Han Solo biopic has a lot to prove on its shoulders. Not only is it portraying one of the most iconic Hollywood characters in the movie making industry, it is also going to show the yesteryears of a bygone era of Star Wars, a franchise that is half a century old already. With only a few pictures and a single teaser, the fans have not been armed enough to decipher a possible plotline for the movie. But one Major Source has confirmed that one popular character of Star Wars will finally appear in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Let’s find out who this mystery character is….
Spoiler Alert: The following paragraphs may contain spoilers for Solo: A Star Wars Story. If you do not want to have your omelets wrecked, look away weaklings…..
One report claims that one popular character will make an appearance in Solo. The character we are talking about is Jabba the Hutt, the slug like alien super crime lord of the Galaxy far, far away.
“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,” the source has confirmed to The Sun newspaper. “Yoda was brought back for The Last Jedi and now Disney wants to bring back another legacy character.”
One particular rumor that is making quite the rounds is that Han and Jabba will meet in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Han owes money to Jabba that he wants to recover. Hence, Han would be going on an adventure trying to figure out a way to pay Jabba the Hutt back. Will Jabba succeed in stopping Han or will Han succeed in his necessary endeavor? Of course the latter makes more sense but this is Star Wars. So, it’s better to stick to the motto ‘You never know’.
Yoda has also made a cameo appearance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. His actions helped Luke Skywalker realize the error of his ways. Even in death, Yoda guides his disciples.
Boba Fett is also being considered to appear in the movie. The Bounty Hunter does not have much of an important role to play but at least it’s a start. Explaining why Boba Fett has suddenly appeared would be meaningless. The fans aren’t that stupid. But explaining Jabba the Hutt as a part of the Solo movie would indeed make sense and be much more realistic given Humanity’s lack for understanding complex things.
Ben Morris has been working on the Visual Effects department in Solo: A Star Wars Story. As an official Lucas Films employee, he told The Sun this vital piece of information:
“Jabba the Hutt would be a good guess. If I say any more I will get into trouble.”
The reappearance of Jabba the Hutt is still a pipedream if you ask most of the fans. Even still, Ben Morris is the go to guy for confirming any Star Wars related news as of this moment. Maybe CGI was used to reincarnate a younger version of Jabba the Hutt. That is possible given the fact that Grand Moff Tarkin was recreated via awesome CGI in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. There a handful of other appearances of characters from the Original Trilogy like Darth Vader and Ponda Baba also made appearances. Looks like Disney is in no mood of breaking tradition.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the latest addition to the Star Wars franchise. The official synopsis reads:
Luke Skywalker’s peaceful and solitary existence gets upended when he encounters Rey, a young woman who shows strong signs of the Force. Her desire to learn the ways of the Jedi forces Luke to make a decision that changes their lives forever. Meanwhile, Kylo Ren and General Hux lead the First Order in an all-out assault against Leia and the Resistance for supremacy of the galaxy.
Through a series of daring escapades, young Han Solo meets his future co-pilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian.
