    There’s A New "Star Wars" Character That Will Change The Way You Look At Han Solo

    The comics have introduced a new character, and it may have some ramifications for the movies.

    That's right, Han Solo has a wife. The huge plot point made its appearance in the new issue of the Marvel Star Wars comic book.

    It also means he would have been married through the entire original trilogy - including during his relationship with Leia.

    Which means this is part of the brand new Disney canon of Star Wars stories.

    The comic, written by Jason Aaron is set in the time period between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, and it all counts as canon.

    Needless to say, people have been rather shocked by the revelation.

    Sana Solo? This doesn't make me feel any better about the new star wars movie... #sanasolo #starwars

    I can't even with Sana Solo. That is all. Ok, that's not all. This makes no sense.

    Some have taken it well in stride.

    People flipping out about this #SanaSolo thing. Let's just see where this twist goes. Could be fun. She may not be who she says she is.

    While others are looking into story potential around the new development.

    @FanBrosShow Have we pondered a maiden name 4 Mrs #SanaSolo? Calrissian perhaps? Maybe Han & Lando were more than just buddies #BrotherInLaw

    Is Sana Solo really Han's wife or could there be some sort of Saffron/Malcolm Reynolds thing happening?

    One for Firefly fans, Saffron was a con artist who tricked Reynolds into marriage without him knowing.

    One thing is for sure, it's not going away, as here's the cover to issue nine of the series

    One fan has raised an even bigger potential storyline to come from all this.

    What if Sana Solo is Finn’s mom, making Finn and Rey half-siblings?

    Rey is a new character, played by Daisy Ridley, to be introduced in Star Wars: Episode VII later this year.

    While unconfirmed, many fans have speculated that she is the daughter of Han Solo. This additional theory would make Finn, John Boyega's character, the son of Han Solo as well, and therefore Finn and Rey would be siblings, which would make a nice mirroring of Luke and Leia's story from the original trilogy.

    All of which neatly fits with Han Solo's reputation as a reckless space-criminal.

    Oh Han, what are you like?
