Since spending the GDP of a small country to acquire the Star Wars rights from George Lucas, Disney has done its best to wipe the slate clean of decades of accumulated fan theories and speculation. Under the guidance of Kathleen Kennedy and the rest of LucasFilm, the new creative team has streamlined the canon, narrowed down the list of key characters for the sequels, and otherwise done it’s best to mark a new course for the Star Wars franchise. So when a new set of rumors began to surface at Star Wars Celebration Europe this past month, it was no surprise that the official response was immediate and firm.

The death of Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens came as a pretty big shock for die-hard Star Wars fans (unless you’re like me and had it spoiled by the random eight-year-old sitting next to you moments before the movie started). And since we barely had a chance to catch our breath before the film moved into the final climactic duel between Kylo Ren and Rey, you can be forgiven for hoping that the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII would circle back to the death of Han Solo and take a few minutes to send the character off right. You know, give us a little closure.

Star Wars Celebration is heading to Europe this year, but if you’re a particularly huge fan of the franchise with enough money to spare for a geeky vacation, then it might just be worth the trek to London next month.

Marvel’s Netlix Daredevil will be keeping Charlie Cox busy for the time being, between The Defenders and a potential third season, but the blind hero may actually have taken aim at the actor’s career. Cox had a bit of trouble shaking one particular aspect of his Matt Murdock performance, and it may even have cost him Star Wars’ Han Solo spinoff.
