Are you still having some trouble understanding how Han Solo completed the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs? So is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu, and he just called out George Lucas for not explaining it properly on his recent visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Liu took to Twitter to share a photo of himself standing in front of a life-sized replica of the Millennium Falcon at Galaxy's Edge. However, unlike most of the pictures of smiling tourists getting to see the ship up close, Liu appears to be confused. Why? His caption pretty much explains it.

"MFW I’m tracking what a parsec is measuring exactly," Liu wrote before adding the hashtag #comeongeorge, an obvious reference to the Star Wars creator.

Yeah, most of us probably made that face when it was confirmed in Solo: A Star Wars Story that a parsec is actually a measurement of distance and not time. In the film, Lando Calrissian insisted that the Kessel Run cannot be completed in less than 20 parsecs but Han proved him wrong by taking a shortcut through the Maw (which, arguably, was risky and awesome at the same time). Still, we're not thoroughly convinced that it was less than 12 parsecs (Han rounded that down because it's more impressive that way).

While Liu still has time to visit Galaxy's Edge right now, he could be getting a more hectic schedule in the near future. Shang-Chi is already expected to begin production in Australia this November.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is scheduled for release on February 12, 2021.
