Trivia: Spoiler! Ray Park reprises his role as Darth Maul, having survived being cut in half in The Phantom Menace. His recovery and life since that movie has actually been covered in the TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. In the end credits his character is listed as Maul, indicating that he is no longer part of the Sith.
Trivia: When doing the Kessel Run, part of the music is the same as when Han was flying through the asteroid field in The Empire Strikes Back.
Trivia: Han references a street racer named Needles who died in a crash, Needles was the guy who goaded Marty into a street race in Back To The Future 3.
Trivia: Minor spoilers. It was revealed in a behind-the-scenes interview that Anthony Daniels, who plays the droid C-3PO in every "Star Wars" movie to date, will have a small role in "Solo", but not as his trademark character. As 3PO has no role in the film's story, Daniels will reportedly cameo as the suit-actor for one of the other Wookies seen in the film, alongside Chewbacca. This will make Daniels the only actor to ever appear in every theatrical "Star Wars" movie. (Not counting the made-for-TV "Ewok Adventure" films).TedStixon
Trivia: The film was originally set to be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and filming was nearly completed when they left the project due to creative differences. Lord and Miller reportedly had creative clashes with the producers and writers, and wanted to make the film much more light and comedic than originally envisioned. The decision for the two to leave was reportedly an amicable one between Lord, Miller and the producers. Shortly after, Ron Howard was hired to take over the project.TedStixon
Other mistake: Towards the end, Chewbacca and Beckett have walked some distance from the landed yacht. They come up a small slope and are faced with Han, waiting for them. But an aerial shot shows that slope is very short and just runs down to a cliff. There's no way they could have got to the base of the slope to walk up it in the first place.
Beckett: Let me give you some advice. Assume everyone will betray you. And you will never be disappointed.
