Marvel Comics Adds The Scene We All Felt Was Missing From 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' In A New Comic

While ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘ was polarizing to half the fanbase, the majority of fans loved what was done with ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ J.J. Abrams was able to craft a story that both felt like a tribute to the original movie, introduced new characters, and brought back much of the original cast. However, near the end of the film, there was one complaint which most fans of the franchise had. Now, in ‘Star Wars: Age of Resistance: Rey’ #1 we which is a new “Star Wars” comic from Marvel that is considered to be canon, the scene we all felt should happen ended up in print.

Shortly after Harrison Ford’s Han Solo bought the big one we saw Rey and General Leia share an extended hug. While it didn’t feel out of place to many fans at the moment that changed as time passed. Why wasn’t Leia sharing this hug with Chewie? In fact, Chewbacca just walked past and almost seemed unphased by the loss of his closest friend of the past few decades.

Thankfully, writer Tom Taylor and artist Ramon Rosano corrected that in their new tale which was shared in the tweet below:

I don’t believe anyone will disagree that this should have happened in the movie. If you think about it for even a moment, this was the hug that should have been featured on screen after the years these characters shared together.

Taylor has been delivering fantastic storytelling at Marvel for quite some time now. While already providing a solid tale with ‘Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man’ he is also the writer responsible for issue #6 which gave us one of the most moving stories in recent years about The Wallcrawler. (At the end of that issue… I wasn’t crying. You were crying.) This further proves that Taylor is a writer who time and time again is able to deliver an emotional gut-punch in the form of both a well-crafted story or even just a couple of panels.

Are you thrilled that Chewie and Leia were able to share the hug in ‘Star Wars: Age of Resistance: Rey’ that should have been featured in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
