From an online review:
You are here probably wondering if Han Solo got emasculated and ruined as a character even more. The answer is yes. His name now has a origin that is lamer than anything you could imagine. He is alone when he signs up for the Empire, says his name is Han so the Empire names him Han Solo.
I remember reading about this during the film's production. I thought "no way, that can't be true!" And it is? Sigh. Why did they need to do that? His name was perfect as it was. It didn't need to be different. That's an awful idea and Disney/Lucasfilm should have respected Lucas' original version of the character. Change for change's sake is the worst form of creativity!
Let's hope Disney don't do a Luke origin spin-off. The writers will tell us how Luke got his surname:
"Luke's grandfather had the force ability to levitate so he was called Skywalker."
Glad we all know that. My life is complete knowing that bit of trivia! :smirk:
