Warning: Major spoilers for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” follow…
Five years ago, Lucasarts’ “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2—Battle of Endor” featured a moment that looks all to familiar to — or scarred in the brains of — those who watched “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” At its end, the game features, in a very similar fashion to J.J. Abrams’ film, the death of Han Solo.
Check out the video below, which shows us the moment in the game that Solo is slain, in an eerily-close way to his death in the seventh “Star Wars” flick:
Here’s the exact frame that might hit too close to all the dear Han Solo fans out there:
It’s also possible that Abrams and Harrison Ford hinted at Solo’s death during an interview on “Conan,” which aired the night before the film’s release. In the clip, O’Brien asks Ford about his wish for Han Solo to be killed in “Return of the Jedi” — at which point, Abrams suspiciously reaches for his cup of coffee (around the 43-second mark.)
Looks a little nervous, doesn’t he?
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is in theatres now.
