    And where there is Sana you know who could potentially be just around the corner.

    I know who you mean, but Han first met her in Vader Down. If she's in the book, she shouldn't meet Han.

    Oh maybe I'll have to go back and re-read that arc sometime but I was under the impression that Han was already pretty familiar with Aphra at that time Vrogas Vas happened?

    He just had heard of her. And Aphra herself said that she had never heard of Han before she got briefed by Triple-Zero about Luke Skywalkers friends.

    So I guess this confirms that Thandie Newton won't be playing Sana in the movie like some have speculated.

    That has already been confirmed in the recent EW articles. Her character's name is Val.

    Synopsis from Amazon:

    Even the fastest ship in the galaxy can't outrun the past....


    THEN:

    It's one of the galaxy's most dangerous secrets: a mysterious transmitter with unknown power and a reward for its discovery that most could only dream of claiming. But those who fly the Millennium Falcon throughout its infamous history aren't your average scoundrels. Not once, but twice, the crew of the Falcon tries to claim the elusive prize - first, Lando Calrissian and the droid L3-37 at the dawn of an ambitious career, and later, a young and hungry Han Solo with the help of his copilot, Chewbacca. But the device's creator, the volatile criminal Fyzen Gor, isn't interested in sharing. And Gor knows how to hold a grudge....

    NOW:

    It's been 10 years since the rebel hero Han Solo last encountered Fyzen Gor. After mounting a successful rebellion against the Empire and starting a family with an Alderaanian princess, Han hasn't given much thought to the mad inventor. But when Lando turns up at Han's doorstep in the middle of the night, it's Fyzen's assassins that he's running from. And without Han's help, Lando - and all life on Cloud City - will be annihilated.

    With the assistance of a young hotshot pilot, an Ewok slicer prodigy, the woman who might be the love of Lando's life, and Han's best and furriest friend, the two most notorious scoundrels in the New Republic are working together once more. They'll have to journey across the stars - and into the past - before Gor uses the device's power to reshape the galaxy.

    Huh. That synopsis sounds like a legit old school EU Star Wars novel. I might can dig it.

    I'm guessing Leia and baby Ben appear in the beginning and the end, as Han wouldn't want to take his new family on a dangerous mission. Super excited to see those moments though.

    Curious who the love of Lando's life is and if she appears in the Solo movie....

    So shades of Doc Vandangante with the mad inventor, a multi-era quest a la Millennium Falcon, inspired use of Ewoks, a bit of a "one last adventure while the family's away" vibe from The Last One Standing... plus it being a Han and Lando adventure... yeah, this feels pretty dang EU.

    Either Lando meets Tendra (who could be aged up because she'd be what 17 in 5 ABY) or they have given him a new love interest. It also seems that Lando is staying at Cloud City rather then moving on (which to be honest I did prefer).

    I'm getting a Brian Daley Han Solo Adventures vibe from that synopsis. Sounds like this is going to be a fun one.

    Thanks for posting!

    Hm. I agree. I hope yours and others' enthusiasm rubs off on me because I'm very uneasy about this right now.
    Because the synopsis really does sound like Classic Legends.

    I wasn't sure what I wanted the most as a tie in novel: should it be centered in Han or Lando? But they gave us both in one package! Thanks a lot!
    Loved the idea that the story will take place in different eras. Can't wait to see Han and Lando in a an adventure post ROTJ, that's classic EU.
    It will be great to see more of Han and Leia married, and little Ben!
