Solo: A Star Wars Story Figures Possibly Reveal the Movie’s McGuffin

It's no doubt that Lucasfilm is incredibly tight-lipped when it comes to revealing details about their upcoming movies—they do, however, fall short on spoilers that come from toys. LEGO leaks had given us our first look at Solo early in the year, and now some new toys have possibly revealed what Beckett and his team are trying to steal during that train heist in the trailers.

According to Star Wars News Net, the Han Solo Card Game has given us a look at ‘Coaxium', the possible McGuffin that will drive the plot of Solo.

Here's an image:

SWNN has also pointed out before that the Hasbro toy of the Kessell Run Millennium Falcon actually had some details blacked out when it was on display at the Hasbro Toy Fair. A full reveal of the box then showed that they were hiding the Coaxium, which looks to be relevant to Han being able to pull off Kessell Run in 12 parsecs. The Coaxium looks like it's going to have something to do with the Falcon's hyperdrive.


Of course, nothing here has officially been stated, and it's all just speculation for now. Personally, though I do keep reading these theories, I hope that the film ends up giving us something completely unexpected—that's why I loved Star Wars: The Last Jedi; it predicted what the fans were expecting, and pulled the rug underneath everyone.

Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out May 25.
