  • that Solo will wind up with a higher metacritic rating than Rogue One?

Fan Service: A Star Wars Discussion

Ash Crossan joins us to delve into the history of fan service in Star Wars! We get into the importance and significance of it. When is it used properly? What were some moments that it felt so forced that it took you out of a Star Wars film or show? We also speculate on the future of fan service including how much of it we expect to see in Solo!

Tobias Beckett is heard giving advice to Han Solo in the full Solo trailer saying “Let me give you some advice: assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed.”

So to have some fun with this, we asked you to give us your best Tobias Beckett fake quote giving Han advice about something that we all know happens to Han in episodes IV – VII, and we chose the best ones! Did yours make it on the show? Listen to find out!
