    Ron Howard's latest tease from the Han Solo set is perhaps his best one yet. At first glance Howard's post on Twitter seems rather ordinary but the added hashtag to it made many fans excited. The two main characters from the popular spoof comic Tag & Bink are about to become official Star Wars canon! Apart from the new characters revelation, the tweet also confirms that Lawrence Kasdan's son Jon, who co-wrote Han Solo with his father, will have a role in the movie.







    Here's Ron Howard's tweet with the hashtag #tagandbink ?










    At first the question mark made us hesitant to believe that these two characters on the photo are indeed the very same Tag and Bink from the spoof comic. But the creator of the Tag & Bink series Kevin Rubio responded to Howard's tweet thanking him that his series is now official canon.










    Just a moment later Jon Kasdan, who is co-writing the movie with Lawrence Kasdan, confirmed to Kevin that it was his decision to make the characters canon, since he is a huge fan of the comic book.








    Also Jon Kasdan confirmed that he himself is playing one of the characters, together with Toby Hefferman (the guy in the middle on the photo), who is working as a first assistant director on Han Solo (he worked on Rogue One as well on the same position).

    For those unfamiliar with the Tag & Bink series, here's Wookieepedia's description:

    So as you can see the two characters are actually rebels and they are probably undercover as we see them in Howard's photo, as they were numerous times in the comic book.

    Are you familiar with the Tag & Bink series? Are you excited to see them on the big screen as official Star Wars canon? I really wonder how big their involvement will be, since obviously they will be a comedic element in the movie. Well, we'll find out in seven months.

    Terrible idea. Don't do it. Totally ruins and exposes the quietly guarded underground secret of Dark Horse's Tag & Bink for the long-term original true fans of this comic series. It will lose its mystique when/if exposed to a mass market of newbies who may not understand it was specificaly created non-canon for comedy purposes.

    If it just for a quick cameo then I say go for it but if they were planning on them being supporting character than I get what you are saying. Seeing as the creator of them is very into it, I think it is pretty cool.

    OMG I'm really happy they're making this film now! I think I have one Tag & Bink comic must dig it out my long box! Wow, I love everything RH is doing in this film. This is a win for all the Dark Horse fans and Kevin Rubio fans. Rubio's fan film started it all. I recently watch some new fan films and some are really great but Rubio's is the best thus far. As a huge ANH fan Rubio did a good job. I remember watching his film (on the force.net) with a big smile on my face and laughing all the way through, Aunt Beru and Owen were hilarious, wow... I'm really looking forward to the Han Solo Teaser trailer, I hope its attached with TLJ. I'M REALLY EXXCITED THANKS FOR THIS ARTICLE.

    Good things aren't better because others are deprived of them. This is a hipster mentality and I think it represents one of the worst tendencies in fandom.
