Han Solo’s Presence Felt in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Though Han Solo died at the hands of his son Ben Solo, AKA Kylo Ren, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that doesn’t mean the character won’t be present — at least figuratively — in the follow-up film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In a new interview, star Daisy Ridley and director Rian Johnson detailed the impact of Han’s legacy in the sequel.

“She just doesn’t understand Kylo,” Ridley told Entertainment Weekly. “When all she wanted was parents, why would a person who has parents do that? It’s so beyond comprehension, it’s ridiculous. So she has grief for the loss and then there’s anger. To be honest, she couldn’t understand doing something like that – let alone to your parents.”

“Han, the ghost of – well, not literally,” director Rian Johnson said, cutting off his sentence. “I don’t want to misguide. I have to be very careful with my words here. But a figurative ghost of Han had to be present throughout this entire film.”
