See Who's Flying The Millennium Falcon in New STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Image
There's a whole subset of Star Wars fandom devoted to trading cards, which is a level of fandom I simply don't possess. I just don't have the money or patience to collect things like that anymore, but Disney and Lucasfilm's revenue streams are doing just fine without my participation.
So while a lot of the talk about Star Wars cards goes over my head, here's a simple enough thing even non-collectors can talk about: Vulture points us to a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens Topps card that reveals a pilot of Han Solo's Millennium Falcon in the movie. And that person is...
Daisy Ridley's Rey! But since this is a still image, and all the information we have, we're left with some pretty big questions: is Han Solo on board this ship with Rey and Chewie, or do those two know each other outside of Han? Is she just driving for a second while Han wanders around in the back, maybe fixing that confounded hyperdrive motivator again? Early rumors involve children of the Skywalkers and/or Solos, so does this maybe imply that Rey is Han and Leia's daughter? Or — and this is what I really hope happens in the movie — did Rey win it from Han in the same way Han won it from Lando back in the day, and now she's the owner of the ship? Maybe we'll find out in the new trailer that's debuting this Monday.
What do you think?
