Rian Johnson is a fantastic presence online, and as the Jedi News recently reported he went onto Instagram and talked about how much he loved Solo. Though the stories are now gone, his quotes remain forever online! “I’d like to think I’d still be honest but it’s not like you’re going to come to my Instagram story for hard-edged film criticism on a Star Wars movie. See it though, it’s super fun. I should get back to writing. Jesus, what have I typed.”

The Marvel Star Wars comics have done a great job expanding on the world created by the movies, and in as reported by Bleeding Cool Poe Dameron #26-27 we get to see Poe, Rey, and Finn hanging out with everyone’s favorite cuddly critters, Porgs.

Lando and Han have long been one of the most beloved ships in all of fan fiction, and Polygon did a fantastic writeup of the history of the fan fave coupling.

Rian Johnson’s been on Twitter again, this time answering some questions about Han’s gold dice which have become such a vital part of contemporary Star Wars lore. As many of us know, Johnson and J.J.
