    I am interested to know what was lifted from the EU and used in Solo.

    I'll begin with Teras Kasi which was used by Qi'ra.

    Mimban, Savareen, and Vandor-1 were all lifted from the EU.

    The crystal skull in Dryden's quarters is the same from the one on the Han Solo and the Lost Legacy cover. Also in Vos's quarters there is the statue of the Dancing Godess, something related to Xim the Despot (can't remember what exactly) and a Tran Mariel runyip. Savareen has brandy.

    Didn't Dryden have a holocron, as well? Big, shiny pyramid thingy?

    Yes he did, but Sith holocrons were made canon prior to Solo (such as in Rebels).

    Just saw this on Twitter and thought it's way too cool not to mention, despite that I haven't noticed it myself in my two viewings of the movie so far.

    We went to Kessel, and I for one loved that. It gave me a glimmer of hope :p

    Was "The Maw" mentioned in Solo? Because that was one of the most prominent, and recurring locations in the post-RotJ EU. It shows up in almost every storyline, from Han's origins, to Kyp Durron, to the shelter of the jedi children in the Vong books, to FotJ, and Abeloth,etc. I think that's where Plo Koon comes from also.

    Is Kira a newer version of Brea?

    It was. The visual guide clarifies that it's actually the Maw Cluster and consists of singularities, plural, so there is probably more than just the one we see - out of sight behind the debris clouds.

    And Legends had a Maw Nebula around them, so it’s simply the Maelstrom now.

    The nebulosity zone looks a lot bigger (in terms of the gap between Kessel and the Maw) than the Akkadese Maelstrom did in the Solo Visual Guide:

    The Maelstrom was maybe three or four times as wide as the distance between Kessel and the Maw. The Legends nebula zone looks 10 or more times as wide.

    Before the big train heist, Beckett tells Val that they need extra help. Val says something like "So call Bossk or the Zahn sisters".

    This might be a reach, but I thought that this was a reference to the Tonnika sisters. I know that the Tonnika sisters have also been established in the new canon by their appearance in From a Certain Point of View. I just thought that this may also have been a nod to Timothy Zahn (who penned Hammertong: The Tale of the Tonnika Sisters in Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina).

    That book was called Scoundrels. However, the twins were Tav (Tavia in full) and Bink Kitik.

    I may not have been thinking about Tav and Bink, but they would actually be a better fit than the Tonnika sisters. Tav and Bink were professional thieves who had helped Han pull off a heist. They are also creations of Zahn. That said, I may just be reading too much into something I heard in the movie.

    There's also the adaptations of things from Legends sources, where you can see the Legends roots.
    In Legends, the Maw also hid a tentacle monster (Abeloth from the Fate of the Jedi books).
    And Legends Lando had a droid co-pilot when he captained the Millennium Falcon (Vuffi Raa, who wasn't a droids' rights activist but was instead from a civilization of droids).

    Here's a nice video going over the Easter Eggs in Dryden's office. Real-world Samurai armor and mongolian helmets are canon in the Star Wars universe thanks to this movie :D
