To this day I can still remember standing in line for Return of the Jedi with my mom and little sister. We went to a late afternoon showing at a mall somewhere, and there were (to me) towering palm trees in a huge planter inside the building. My little sister had been devastated — loudly crying in the theater — when Han was frozen in carbonite. I was sure he’d be fine, of course. (3PO said he was stable!) Between the two films I devoured every paperback and comic book I could find to learn more about Lando.
I have no idea whether these are even still considered “canon”, but they were great fun to read:
- Han Solo at Stars’ End (1979) – Brian Daley
- Han Solo and the Lost Legacy (1980) – Brian Daley
- Han Solo’s Revenge (1979) – Brian Daley
- The Hutt Gambit (1997) – A.C. Crispin
- Rebel Dawn (1998) – A.C. Crispin
PS: May the Force be with you.
