nerf herder 2

Because no stone can be left unturned in the expanded Star Wars universe, the most recent issue of Marvel’s comic series (set in between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back) has revealed the origin of one of the original trilogy’s most quoted and bizarre lines of dialogue. Remember Leia calling Han Solo a “scruffy-looking nerf herder”? It turns out that this is a bit of a low blow and a reference to the time Han lost Rebellion funds while gambling and was forced to literally transport a bunch “nerf” (shaggy, horned aliens) to make up for it.

And while Han Solo may be a scoundrel and a half, Harrison Ford is no such thing. The beloved actor has donated the leather jacket he wore in Star Wars: The Force Awakens to an auction to benefit Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures, otherwise known as FACES. Ford, whose daughter has epilepsy, issued this statement:

I’ve been very impressed with the work NYU and the FACES team have done in the field of epilepsy research, and I hope this jacket will provide some means to further that exploration. This is a cause that’s near and dear to me, and unlike the cynical Han Solo, I’ve got a good feeling about this.
