Solo: A Star Wars Story tells the adventures of a young Han Solo where he meets his friend and co-pilot the Wookiee Chewbacca, gets that famous blaster of his, wins the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian, and starts the rebellion against the empire???
Solo is a heist film that details how Han gets embroiled in a plot to steal a large amount of raw coaxium for the criminal organization, Crimson Dawn. It’s later revealed by Enfys Nest, the leader of a marauder gang of Cloud Riders, that Crimson Dawn works for the Empire and their endless search for resources has killed or displaced the many native populations of the planets they go to. If the extremely valuable coaxium is delivered to Crimson Dawn, it would only ensure that the Empire’s reach will stretch even further, allowing them to destroy even more lives and homelands.
Han being an outlaw with a heart of gold decides to abandon his original plan and gives the coaxium to Enfys Nest. She reveals that the coaxium will go towards funding a rebellion.
A rebellion. As in THE Rebellion.
Han Solo is the father of the Rebel Alliance.
Well, more accurately, Han Solo is the Rebellion’s benefactor. His decision to turn his back on his own payday will allow Enfys Nest to establish an organized uprising and it’s heavily implied that that uprising will one day evolve into the Rebel Alliance, the same Rebel Alliance that staunchly opposes the tyrannical rule of the Empire. You know, only the ENTIRE point of the Star Wars saga.
This story decision singlehandedly realigns Han Solo’s place in the Star Wars pantheon from charming, roguish Rebellion hero to linchpin of the entire Star Wars universe. Sure, there would always be some form of the Rebellion to stand against the Empire but one that is well-funded enough to have secret bases for rebel leaders like Mon Mothma and Bail Organa to meet in or a fleet of X-Wings for Luke Skywalker and Poe Dameron to pilot seems to be in large thanks to Han Solo.
During the conclusion of Solo, Enfys Nest asks Han to join their revolution. He declines, deciding that the rebel life is not for him but Enfys correctly suspects that he may feel differently later on down the road. Now knowing what we know, it makes perfect sense for Han to return to the revolution he helped create.
