Prequels in Waiting

Forgive me if this is an ancient idea – I don’t frequent the Star Wars fansites. But as I watch my children’s fervor for the myth rise, I find myself wondering, “Why didn’t Lucas give us a prequel about Han Solo?”


  1. Duh, because everybody knows his story already. He was hanging around with Opie in American Graffiti.

  2. Notrelatedtoted says

    Don’t give Lucas any ideas….

  3. Some stories are best left to the imagination. This is where you can share with your children.

  4. Cubeland Mystic says

    Don’t they cover that in the books?

  5. Matthew Lickona says

    Apparently, they did. Forgive me – I never read the books.

  6. Cubeland Mystic says

    I don’t read them either. I heard about it while reading a review when the last movie came out. I guess Solo was raised by the Wookies. The writer had hoped to see young Solo on the Wookie planet in the last movie.

    I think it would have been a nice touch having a little eight year old boy serving as a runner or something.

    In English sub-titles, “Han, take this to General Chewbaka.” The boy exits at a run.
