9/12/2018

In Solo: A Star Wars Story, Tobias Beckett considers taking Han and Chewie off Mimban with them because his crew is "short-handed." But how did they get short-handed in the first place? The movie doesn't explain, but the "Expanded Edition" novelization has the answer - and also reveals whether Beckett saw Han or Chewie as bringing the element he needed to add back into the crew.

Do people talk in a more hostile way to women than men on Twitter, when they're talking about Star Wars? A new analysis from Bethany Lacina, a political science professor, at the University of Rochester, certainly makes that case.
