Should the Kessel Run be in the Han Solo movie?

Without doubt the biggest question marks in Star Wars fandom is the upcoming Han Solo “Star Wars Story” film.

With Lawrence Kasdan & and son Jake writing the script and Lego movie directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller yelling cut and other assorted show business terms, the film seems to  be in good hands.

However…

Every Star Wars fan has a different idea about what “should” be in a Han Solo film, from who plays Han, to the appearance on the Millennium Falcon and of course his relationship with Chewbacca.

A tough call when making a Star Wars prequel is should the throw away lines in the original trilogy be left as such allowing the viewer to imagine what could’ve been or like Obi Wan’s mention of The Clone Wars made into an entire cartoon series!
