Dating isn’t especially easy in this day and age; consider how tough it must be in a galaxy far, far away, what with moon-sized space stations threatening to destroy everything in orbit. But even with the Empire at large, and masked bounty hunters hot on their tail at the behest of any number of slug-like crime lords, Han Solo and Princess Leia still makes time for romance. Love’s what gets you through those cold nights in deep space, after all.
Our latest episode of Millennial Falcon–a series reimagines the concept of “Young Han Solo” as first brought to the world’s lexicon via the forthcoming Phil Lord and Christopher Miller prequel movie–sees Han and Leia trying their hand at a date night aboard the Millennium Falcon. It’s not exactly the ideal spot for a classy evening with that special someone, but hey, it’ll do in a pinch… especially when there’s not a single decent planet worth visiting for parsecs around. I mean, Hoth? Tatooine? Dagobah? Aren’t there any planets or moons around with temperate climates and forgiving terrain?[brightcove video_id=”5432304088001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=”rJs2ZD8x”]
To date, we’ve seen our own Young Han Solo–perhaps more befitting of youth culture on Earth: American District, circa 2017, than he might be of 3250s Corellia–pal around with Young Princess Leia, Young Lando, Young-ish Chewbacca, and Age-Not-Applicable C-3PO and R2-D2… not to mention a nasty run-in with Middle-Aged Darth Vader. Which Young-ified Star Wars characters would you like to see added to the Millennial Falcon repertoire? Let us know!
