Shipper Bait

Hando

Chris Lee of Vulture.com reports on a 6 minute sequence from Solo shown at CinemaCon:

As the pile of chips grows in front of Han — whom Lando first calls “Haaan” before being corrected — Lando begins to lose his cool. Just then, Solo goes all in, pushing all his money into the pot. “Whoa, whoa, whoa, slow down,” Lando says. “You might want to quit while you’re ahead.”

“You might want to quit while you’re behind,” Han responds.

“You’re adorable,” Lando fires back.

A ripple of recognition shuddered through the Caesar’s Palace Ballroom as conventioneers registered this film’s reinterpretation of Star Wars’ iconic rivals. Despite months of negative buzz and the uncertainty surrounding Solo in light of its original directors being fired and replaced, suffice it to say the material played well in the room.

Normal people would interpret this as banter between rivals as one attempts to belittle the other.

But you can bet your bottom dollar, that Hando shippers will be swooning over this from now until the movie’s release.
