[“SOLO” SPOILER] Watched Solo on kid’s teacher training day this week. Great movie. But totally confused about WHEN it happened. Han signs up to fight for the Empire, but then Darth Maul (?) pops up?

@ross Stuff most people don't know: 1. Darth Maul survived, thanks to Dark Side rage, being chopped in half. In the Clone Wars TV series, we learn that, and he got some robot legs. 2. After revealing his survival to Darth Sidious, and be rejected by same, Maul goes on to become head of a crime syndicate. There's more on that in the TV series Rebels. 3. So Solo takes place approximately 10 years before A New Hope.

@retrophisch @ross They should have popped up a big asterisk and explanatory footnote when he appeared. 😜

@retrophisch I don't mind missing Easter eggs from other movies, but that was really mixed up. It required a little more explication.

@retrophisch Oh. Thanks. Kinda weird that they did that. I expect a lot of people are only following the big movie saga.

@macgenie I only thought of it after the event when we were discussing the timeline. But yeah. It needed explaining for the masses.
