Everyone assumes Han Solo won the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian in a card game of called sabacc, but the novelization of The Last Jedi presupposes, maybe he didn’t? With one line, author Jason Fry has changed the way Han Solo won the Millennium Falcon. And that means, at least one scene in Solo: A Star Wars Story will happen differently than the way Star Wars fans have assumed.

Spoilers head for the novelization, The Last Jedi: Expanded Edition.

On Tuesday, the novelization of Star Wars: The Last Jedi was published by Del Rey Books. And one change no one saw coming will retroactive effect the events of Solo. Han didn’t win the Falcon in a card game. He won it throwing dice. Which means those infamous hanging dice Luke used to fake-out Kylo Ren in The Last Jedi now have an added significance. They were the luckiest dice in Han’s life because they are the ones he used when he beat Lando in some kind of game.

In the book, this revelation happens when Leia is reflecting on Kylo Ren’s childhood and youth. From page 82:

Ben as a toddler, forever following Han. Carrying the dice from the Millennium Falcon — the ones his father had used to win the beloved, battered freighter — and promising anyone who’d listen that one day he would be a pilot, too, like his daddy.

And there you have it. In old Star Wars Legends canon, Han and Lando always played the card game sabaac for the Falcon. But now, we know that will be different. And because Solo: A Star Wars Story will have to depict Han winning the Falcon, we’ll all be seeing these dice again very, very soon.

The Last Jedi: Expanded Edition is out now from bookseller everywhere in hardcover and e-book formats.

There are many lists on the internet that rank the greatest fight scenes, or the most impressive stunts pulled off by living human beings. This list is not like any of those. The following items listed below are, with some room for debate, the most influential stunts and action sequences in cinema, the ones that raised the bar and define what action movies looks like today.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s terrific second season hit Amazon on December 5, but if you’re anything like me you’ve already binged through all ten new episodes and now you’re desperately waiting for Season 3. If you’re wondering when the show will return we’ve got some good news (and some bad news too).

A mythical new weapon has come to the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale in the form of the Infinity Blade from the video game series of the same name, and it just made one place on the map the most trafficked location of all.

Following up on a Monday teaser, Epic Games introduced a sword called the Infinity Blade to Fortnite Season 7 and it’s so much more than another pickaxe like some players thought. The Fortnite version 7.01 patch notes outline everything to know about this new weapon, and it’s unlike anything else we’ve seen before in the game. In fact, the closest thing to the Infinity Blade is the Infinity Gauntlet that transformed players into Thanos for the Infinity War crossover in April. (Both items are classified as “Mythic.”)

When Nintendo announced that every fighter in Smash Bros. history would be playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans everywhere probably didn’t consider how long it would take to actually obtain all 70-plus fighters. Thankfully, it doesn’t take that long to begin smashing with your favorite mains. You will, however, need to put in some effort.

Something happened to the survivors in the six years between Rick’s “death” and Judith saving Magna’s group on The Walking Dead Season 9, and as a result, the communities are divided. Michonne’s not exactly welcomed at the Hilltop with open arms, but could the introduction of the Whisperers and a major death in the midseason finale be what brings everyone back together?
