When Disney revived the Star Wars trilogy with The Force Awakens in 2015, fans were glad to see favorite characters like Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie return to the screen alongside new stars like Rey, Finn, and Poe. But it wasn’t all a happy reunion, as the movie’s saddest moment came when Kylo Ren killed his father, Han Solo.
But that wasn’t the worst part. When Chewie brought the Millennium Falcon back to the resistance base after Han’s death, he and Leia didn’t even share a hug. At least, not on screen.
In Star Wars: Age of Resistance: Rey #1, in stores today from Marvel Comics from Australia’s Favorite Son Tom Taylor and artist Ramon Rosanos, Leia and Chewie did share a moment together, and a hug, after Han’s death. And since Marvel’s Star Wars comics are canon, that means the hug is official. Taylor boasted of his accomplishment on Twitter:

Now, if Tom can just bring back Jar Jar Binks, all will be right in the galaxy again.
