The SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Trailer Featured An Unexpected ROGUE ONE Cameo

The SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Trailer Featured An Unexpected ROGUE ONE Cameo

The latest trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story featured a lot of very cool reveals but did you spot that cameo appearance from Rogue One and Marvel's Doctor Aphra? Hit the jump to check it out...

It's not clear where exactly in the Star Wars timeline Solo takes place. Is it at exactly the same time as Rogue One, before that movie, after it, or all of the above? That remains to be seen but a very interesting connection between the two movies has now been revealed. If you fast-forward to the 0:58 mark in the latest trailer, there's an Easter Egg featuring a character from the 2016 release. 

So, who is it that shows up? K-2SO? Orson
Krennic? Jyn Erso? Not exactly. Instead, if you take a close look at the characters in the background of that gambling den Han and Lando Calrissian find themselves in, you'll spot bounty hunter Tam Posla. He was first seen in a crowd on Jedha but his unique appearance got the attention of fans and his backstory was later fleshed out in a tie-in book. 

It was there we learned he used to be lawman for the Milvayne Authority before becoming a bounty hunter who was on Jedha looking for Ponda Baba and Doctor Evazan. He's since been used as a secondary character in Marvel's Doctor Aphra comic book series. The question now is, has he been put in Solo just for the sake of it or will he have a role to play? It's probably the former 
to be honest! 

This is a nice nod regardless and you can find more Easter Eggs from the trailer by clicking here
