Han Solo is one of the most iconic characters in the original Star Wars trilogy. First making an appearance on Luke’s home world of Tatooine, he and his co-pilot Chewbacca are hired by the exiled Obi Wan Kenobi. Originally portrayed as a gun for hire, one of his most iconic introductory scenes has been a topic of much debate. Featuring a heated discussion about money owed to Jabba the Hutt, in the original cut Han Solo shoots the messenger Greedo first, but this was changed to make him more of character that viewers could empathize with in later editions of the movie. Sparking the fan mantra of “Han Solo shoots first,” this has become a meme that carried through the later movies. Joining the Rebel Alliance and becoming an instrumental member in the galactic war against the Imperials, he befriends main character Luke and falls for his twin sister Leia. Described by George Lucas Han is “a loner who realizes the importance of being part of a group and helping for the common good.” Portrayed by the now household name, Harrison Ford, we are all waiting with bated breath for his reprise of this role in the new Disney produced trilogy.
