Until now, Han Solo’s father was a figure shrouded in mystery. Han (played by Alden Ehrenreich) mentioned his father in the 2018 movie Solo: A Star Wars Story, explaining that he was a shipbuilder in Corellia, although he admitted he was not quite close to him. Extended Novel single He explained it in detail, explaining that Han’s father had abandoned him at a young age. This seems to contradict the canonical reference book Ultimate Star Wars, Which means Han was an orphan because his father died. at Star Wars LegendsHan’s father is named Jonach Solo, although this character appears to have been removed from the canon entirely.


Marvel Han Solo and Chewbacca #1, released back in March, changed everything. In this issue, Han stops for a drink while returning to Corellia as part of a heist with Greedo, sitting next to an older man. Han began to discuss his father, revealing his name to Lufan. Then the old man, claiming that he was indeed Ofan, turned to Han and hugged him.

However, it remains to be seen if this guy really is he is Offan. Han certainly does not seem convinced. Hence, the correct hook means. The future rebel general also sarcastically refers to the man as “Dad”, thinking that the whole thing is some kind of deception. After all, “Ovan” seemed to look a lot different than when Han last saw him. However, the guy attributes this to the years of “not being kind” to him, and shipbuilding being a “dangerous” profession. However, it appears that “Ovan” has been stuck for some time, as the character appears alongside Han and Chewie on the June cover. Han Solo and Chewbacca #3.
