Hello, Yes We Would Like to Live in Lando’s Incredible Closet From Han Solo Movie Pics

Listen, we all know that Lando Calrissian is a man of questionable morals but unquestionable fashion sense. His cape game was even stronger than Darth Vader's, and that's saying something—and probably part of why Vader backstabbed him. (It's my headcanon, and I'm sticking to it.)

Is This Chewbacca’s Wife in a Behind-the-Scenes Pic From the Han Solo Movie?

Malla, is that you?

In the old Star Wars Expanded Universe novels, a wookiee named Mallatobuck was Chewbacca's wife, but all that was thrown out when Disney took over Lucasfilm and decided to make all pieces of Star Wars media canon to the movies, mostly tossing out the EU.

#WheresRey? Not in Star Wars Monopoly, Despite Hasbro’s Promises

Last year, an eight year old girl wrote a letter to Hasbro wondering why there was no Rey token included in the new Star Wars Monopoly game. Hasbro responded to her letter, saying that they left her out because they didn't want to be responsible for spoilers to The Force Awakens, as the board game came out before the film. Later, they promised to include Rey in subsequent versions of the game by the Fall of 2016. It's now Summer of 2017, and we're still waiting.

Rey Shows off Her Piloting Skills in Star Wars Forces of Destiny Episode 2

While we wait impatiently for more Rey in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Disney is filling in the gap a bit with Forces of Destiny—as well as some gaps in The Force Awakens, during which their Rey/BB-8 story arc takes place.
