Solo Almost Included A Reference To That Other Guy Who Played A Younger Harrison Ford Character
The best thing we can say about Solo: A Star Wars Story is that we enjoyed the scene where that tiny robot danced on that computer console. That might be a harsh verdict, but this movie was always going to be a victim of high expectations -- not only because prequels are to Star Wars what the Death Star was to Alderaan, but also because it was the first film to feature another actor as Han Solo, a role that Harrison Ford had mutteringly begrudged for decades.
You can tell that the film's writers were aware of this significance, thanks to a throwaway gag that wound up excised from the final cut.
During the sequence in which Han and Qi'ra are fleeing from Lady Proxima's forces, one moment had the two running through a bazaar and hiding in a barrel of eels. The bad guys pass by and the two emerge ... but before he takes off running, Solo stops to pull an eel from his pants.
