    Oh so that's why we didn't see the Knights of Ren in TLJ. They went back in time to kill Han Solo a second time.

    Isn't Warwick supposed to have a cameo in the Solo movie? Never realized that there was a short character in the shot actually, should be him then! :cool:

    GIANT TENTACLED CTHULHU SPACE MONSTER lives in a nebula.

    From EW:
    "And in the trailer we see the vessel contending with giant, electrified tentacles in a nebula."

    Hmmm, Breznican. I know he, of all journos, has the best inside track to LFL but he has been known to add his own spin at times.

    I hope he isn't. I love the nebula idea.

    I think that's a nebula of some kind alright. It wouldn't be the first time we see some creatures living in a nebula: There's the Neebray Mantas in the nebula of the Balmorra Run:

    Also, it's definitely in space and not just a storm on some planet. Just check the rocks that Han slams the Tie Fighter against with the Falcon, they look like asteroids and not mountain tops or something.

    Anthony Breznican thinks Bone Head is Han Solo’s father. He doesn’t know for sure so it is a bit of informed speculation, he also said during the Steele Wars podcast that he knows the character’s name but is not allowed to say what it is.

    Or maybe it's SHAKATHULHU.
    [Ric Olié voice]That's a clever name, because it sounds like Shaka Zulu, and it also has 'thulhu' in it, like Cthulhu, and 'shaka' sounds like 'shocka', which is what its tentacles do.... they shock, and it's a pretty laidback dude or dudette who gives the shaka sign when passersby float through its nebulous surf space.[/Ric Olié voice]

    Well something must feed on those creatures in the Nebula but in the Maw itself?

    I'd be up for an anthology film where Finn and Rey fly a modified Falcon into the nebula to battle KAIJHULHU.
    OUTER RIM: A Star Wars Story, directed by Guillermo del Toro.
    Finn and Rey remotely control two sections of the Falcon that look like this:

    About the feeding habits of
    GIANT TENTACLED CTHULHU SPACE MONSTER, I'm thinking perhaps it utilizes a process called chemosynthesis, using the raw materials in the nebula to thrive.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemosynthesis

    An example on Earth of a creature that lives by this method is the GIANT TUBE WORM. These tubular behemoths can reach a length of 2.7 meters (7'10").

    Jason Ward believes Bone Head’s name is “Enlys”. Hell of a name.

    That's an odd one. At the beginning of the trailer, Han is enlisting in the Imperial armed forces. Does it sound like endless, or en-lyze, or maybe en-leeze? I wonder.

    Maybe in IX there will be a scene with Kylo talking to the mask of Grandfather Enfys.

    Something interesting about the name Enfys........ it's also a Welsh name for males and females, and it means "rainbow".
    Enfys Nest could be a woman, which also means she could be Han's mother, not father.

    Right now the Solo movie is being plagued by plagiarism poster stealing art accusations that appear credible. SO perhaps 'ol Plagueis is alive...

    Usually Star Wars characters have strange or dumb names, especially throwaway characters or some alias.

    Those fins on some of the pirate's helmets are presumably aerodynamic aids when flying high.
