A piece of concept art from Star Wars: The Force Awakens reveals an alternate return for Harrison Ford’s Han Solo.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens got the franchise under Disney off to a massively-successful start as the film went on to gross over 2 billion dollars. A major reason why there was so much excitement surrounding The Force Awakens was because the film featured the return of Carrie Fisher’s Leia Organa, Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker, and Harrison Ford’s Han Solo.

Harrison Ford had the most prominent role in The Force Awakens which led to the death of Han Solo. In The Force Awakens, Han Solo’s return is now iconic with the “Chewie, we’re home” line, but it could’ve happened differently. A piece of concept art from Christian Alzmann depicts Han Solo out-drinking others in a cantina. You can see the Star Wars concept art below.
