Han Solo is a character from the Star Wars series made by George Lucas. Fans love this personality, making the Han Solo costume one popular choice for cosplay and Halloween parties or Comic-Con.
Han Solo first appeared in a 1977 movie and was played by Harrison Ford. He even appeared in the films “The Empire Strikes Back” in 1980 and “Return of the Jedi” in 1983.
After the 1983 movie, we see Han Solo in “The Force Awakens” in 2015, and in 2019 he made a guest appearance in the film “The Rise of Skywalker.”
Also, in 2018 there was a spin-off movie “Solo,” which was about the early days of Han Solo. It was played by Alden Ehrenreich.
The personality of Han Solo
He was a smuggler who was cynical, selfish, and money-obsessed in the beginning. Even though he had more bad qualities, he still cared a lot about Chewbacca, his best friend. He often helped Han in his smuggling.
But after he saved Luke from Darth Vader, he joined the Rebel Alliance. Being in Rebel Alliance, he slowly becomes responsible, kind, loyal, trustable, and honorable. Even before, when he was cunning, he was always faithful to his close ones.
We know that he does not like droids and does not want them to travel on his ship, though he did travel with them in certain situations. Also, in Rebellion, Han allowed R2-D2 and C-3PO to access the Millennium Falcon freely. Despite this, he never really had a good word with droids.
Moreover, he was very protective of his ship and hated it when Droids repaired the Millennium Falcon. Also, he was hesitant to let Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, or anyone fly his ship.
Besides, he didn’t believe in The Force and thought it was nonsense. But in the movie “The Force Awakens,” we see Han believes in The Force. It is most likely because of Luke’s exploits and knowing that his son can use The Force.
