Star Wars Sabacc

Disney, who now own literally everything along with Star Wars, have filed a federal trademark lawsuit in an effort to stop a mobile app game based on Sabacc, a card game that was created for the Star Wars universe. Sabacc was first referenced in The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars novels later revealed that Han Solo won the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian in a game of Sabacc – a fact that’s likely to come up at some point in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Han Solo Ralph McQuarrie

By now, Star Wars fans should be well aware of the impact that concept artist Ralph McQuarrie had on the franchise. George Lucas once described McQuarrie’s contribution to Star Wars as “incalculable” because of how integral the artist’s early sketches were to translating Lucas’s script into a visual guide for the talented craftspeople to be able to bring the story to life.

Some of McQuarrie’s unused designs and early ideas have been incorporated into various pieces of Star Wars mythos over the years, from J.J. Abrams bringing his art to the big screen in The Force Awakens to McQuarrie’s Darth Vader design finding its way into Star Wars Rebels. Now we know Han Solo director Ron Howard will keep that trend alive: the filmmaker has shared a photo involving a Han Solo Ralph McQuarrie easter egg that only the most eagle-eyed fans would have been able to spot. Check it out below.
