Rise of Skywalker Writer Reveals Han Solo Is Alive on a Different Transport
Spoilers for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker
The revelations just keep coming from our recap of The Rise of Skywalker. The film, which has recently been attributed to Reddit user u/StarWarsRox_69 has been undergoing a tough time with critics, but its been revealed that one major revelation was actually cut from the film. Read our interview below:
FF: So Harrison Ford returns in this film…
u/StarWarsRox_69: Yeah! It was great to be able to resurrect the character and reveal that he’s still alive and kicking!
Wait? I thought he was a vision?
No! In this film we introduce the idea that, no matter how certain a character’s death is, we can save them by saying they were on a different transport.
That’s why we did it with Chewie, to set it up as a plot device to bring back Han.
But… we saw Han die?
We also saw Chewie die, but then we revealed he was on a different transport, so he’s fine.
…the lightsaber went through him?
Where has he been?
What part of “different transport” do you not understand.
He was on a different transport, he’s fine.
What about all the character development that came with Han’s death?
Oh yeah, I guess that’s on a different transport too.
