The origin Star Wars story of cult-character Solo might or might not surprise you, but we surely noticed some weird and interesting things in the film.
#1 A Second-wave Feminist Droid
Yes, you didn’t mishear it and we didn’t mistake it. With all the fuss in film and fashion industry for the past few years in issuing feminism and equality, it is no wonder that Lucasfilm decided to include the satire in the film.

If you get confused with this, perhaps, just perhaps, we are 350 years too early for the ‘droid movement’.
#2 Solo and Chewie are A Couple Made in Heaven
The first meeting of Solo and Chewie altered from hints shown in Star Wars canon, but the point has always been made: they understood each other even in the first sight.
