Star Wars: Before and After The Force Awakens
The Ever-Changing Han Solo
shazbazzar

For over two weeks, The Force Awakens has been rewriting history at the box office as ticket sales have catapulted Star Wars back to the front of the pack as it shatters records on its way to reclaiming the title of “Highest Grossing Movie” in our modern age.  But the bigger story is how J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan have rewritten history through Han Solo: the Rebel Alliance General, smuggler, and war hero.

After the Disney purchase of Lucasfilm (for the explicit purpose of obtaining all rights to Star Wars), they clearly stated and widely publicized that the Expanded Universe was officially considered non-canon.  This announcement was met with mixed responses from fans of the saga as many who had invested time, money, and quite a bit of emotion in the books expressed disappointment, frustration, and even resentment at the news.  Other fans of the EU understood the need for this clarification, since the storytellers of Episodes 7, 8, & 9 would need the freedom to conclude the Skywalker saga without being restricted by hundreds of stories about Han, Luke, and Leia and their adventures after Return of the Jedi.  In effect, Disney would be rewriting the history many of us had accepted and appreciated for decades.  But that isn’t the biggest rewrite, either.
