It has to be them finding/buying/stealing the Falcon again. What else could possibly be "home" to Chewie and Han (not to mention the background looks exactly like the Falcon)?

I'm actually quite pleased that JJ Abrams is doing these movies; I liked the new Star Trek movie, although I haven't seen much of the TV series admittedly.

Why would they have lost the Falcon in the first place? I mean, Lando pilots it during the final battle but shouldn't we assume he brings it down to Endor after that? Han is still the owner.

I wonder if Lando will get any kind of mention in this film. Maybe Han will say to Chewie in passing "And Lando thought he could take the Falcon back from me. Well, my blaster had something to say about that." :fiendish grin:

Are you being facetious? If Lando wanted to just steal the Falcon, he would have done so instead of rescuing Han from Jabba, or before the final space battle.

But on a serious note, one wonders if they're going to bring Williams back at some point. Maybe they didn't want to blow their whole load on the first film, and we'll see him in Episode VIII.

I just assumed he was on Tatooine, stepping off of the Falcon.

I realize that's not actually his home, but I don't know if I can expect this movie to realize that. I'm tempering expectations as far as canonical information is concerned.

But ideally, I hope it's Corellia.

I think Abrahams confirmed it was some previously unseen desert planet and not Tatooine.

I agree, I think he will turn up in the 2nd of the trilogy like he did the first time around, no doubt he'll have done well for himself again

If Lando isn't in the new series, I'm going to vandalize JJ Abrams home.
That'd be a crime against humanity.

That makes no sense. Even if a revised canon gave him a new home planet, they wouldn't have him hailing from Tattooine, when Luke and Anakin are both from there as well.

Also, regarding the new desert planet (forget the name Abrams said during the panel): what's the point of creating a new planet if it's going to look the same as Tattooine? They couldn't think of anything else?

Oh, I realize it doesn't make sense, but in the minds of people who haven't experienced the franchise outside of the films, I would assume they think he's also from Tattooine. That's where we first met him, after all.

Either way, I'm trying not to read too many details into what this film is about, so I may duck out of this thread from here on out. Yesterday in line at Record Store Day I had some guy in line in front of me practically laying out the entire plot and I was getting pretty furious. Who knows how much he does or doesn't know but he was claiming that he worked at a post house and knew this and that and in this city, I just don't know who to believe.

No, why would anyone assume that? Here's what we know as we watch the film:

1. Luke and Ben are headed to Mos Eisley SPACEPORT

2. Ben tells Luke they can find the best freighter pilots there

3. Ben tells Luke that Chewbacca is the first mate on a ship

4. Han mentions making the Kessel Run

5. Han mentions outrunning Imperial starships

6. The ship is in the docking bay

7. Greedo refers to Han as a smuggler

8. Greedo refers to Han dropping a shipment prematurely

9. Han mentions being boarded by Imperial troops


The point I'm trying to make here are that Han, Chewie, and the ship have clearly been around the galaxy considering their line of work. There's no reason to assume they're "home" as opposed to being on Tattooine as a business stopover.

No, you're right, all of that's very true. I'm just curious what the average person on the street would say if you asked them what planet Han is from, that's all.

They'd probably say "get the fuck out of my face" and walk away.
