Han Solo is arguably one of the most significant characters in the Star Wars franchise, and many fans would insist he's one of the greatest characters of all time. He's handsome, he absolutely without a doubt shot first, he's an excellent pilot, and he's a rogue and scoundrel you can't help but love. He's also a hero (despite his initial protestations) and one of the most important members of the Rebel Alliance. Unfortunately, he's also the victim of Disney's purchase of the franchise.
When Disney acquired the rights to the Star Wars franchise, all of the books and comics written about Han Solo were relegated to Star Wars Legends status. Since then, Han has been able to get some decent representation with a bunch of comics, and of course, he finally got a feature film via Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Still, there's plenty about Han Solo that the average fan doesn't know. After all, what was Han Solo's childhood like, and how did he become so close to Chewbacca? Solo may have shown how he won the Millennium Falcon, but there's far more story to tell about Han Solo. Take a look at some of the most interesting things you probably didn't know about Han Solo down below, and be sure to upvote the best facts about everyone's favorite "scruffy-looking Nerf herder!"
