Han Solo’s hanging dice on the Millennium Falcon was just a small Easter Egg in the original Star Wars, but The Last Jedi gave us a great look at them, and they were even a relevant plot device when it came to the story. With the new Solo trailer out, some eagle-eyed fans have spotted Han’s lucky dice in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in the trailer.
It’s hanging on Han’s dashboard during that speeder chase sequence:
The dice were said to be originally added by set designer Roger Christian as a nod to Harrison Ford’s car in American Graffiti, and A New Hope was the only time they could be spotted. The sequel trilogy, however, features them more prominently, and it was even said that there was a deleted scene in The Force Awakens where Han put the dice back in the cockpit of the Falcon.
According to canon, this pair of dice was the same one that Han used to win the Falcon from Lando Calrissian, a scene that everyone is expecting to see in the movie. Though the dice originally had a more regular dotted look in A New Hope, they were given an upgrade for their close-up in The Last Jedi. No doubt the emphasis on the dice was to prep for the release of the Solo movie, where they’ll probably be more prominent.
