Though we've yet to get a trailer or even a title for the Star WarsHan Solo spin-off film, current director Ron Howard has been teasing fans about the film via his Twitter account. His latest adds something that was once non-canon to the canon Star Wars universe.

Howard tweeted a photo from the set showing two men in imperial uniform. So far, unremarkable though it does tell us that there will be an imperial presence in the film, not just scoundrels. The interesting part was how he tagged the image: "#tagandbink?"




To Star Wars fans, Tag and Bink are the names of two characters from the Dark Horse era of comics. The stories that the characters were featured in were comedic and were written by creator Kevin Rubio (based on this brothers). In the comics Tag Greenley and Bink Otauna were low-level Force sensitives, who stumble onto key events in Star Wars history Forrest Gump style, eventually joining the Rebellion and disguise themselves as stormtroopers after getting captured.

That Howard put a "?" in his tweet would lead one to speculate if he was just joking about the two Imperial officers as Tag & Bink are quite the bumblers. That did not deter Rubio, who was very happy to see the reference:


This lead to one of the men featured in the photo (the other being Toby Hefferman), Jon Kasdan, who co-wrote the film with his father Lawrence Kasdan, to confirm that the characters were indeed in the film:
