‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ may have been a box office flop but fans and critics who did see it mostly loved it, and now we’ve got a new cutscene for you to enjoy. In it, Solo is on trial for crashing a TIE Fighter; this likely takes place right before we see him on the battlefield where he meets his BFF. The best part though is this scene even has a minor callback to ‘Star Wars: A New Hope.’
The throwback comes from a conversation which occurred in the first film for the franchise when we saw Han helping Luke try to save Princess Leia. In the scene where he is dressed as a Stormtrooper and ends a conversation by destroying the communications system with his blaster and says “It was a boring conversation anyway.” In this scene, we see Alden Ehrenreich turning off his headset when a superior officer is giving him orders that he doesn’t like and stating “This conversation is over!”

While this would have been a great scene to include how Han washed out of the Imperial Academy, it would likely have been better had it used the exact line from the original film. While we’re never going to get much in the way of live-action for Solo’s time as part of The Empire, we can read about it in the upcoming comic ‘Star Wars: Han Solo – Imperial Cadet!
