The death of Han Solo didn’t bother me in The Force Awakens though I do agree he should have had a better sendoff. I found two old Entertainment Weekly articles from the same newsletter on the topic. One proves my point that Harrison Ford wanted to kill the character off a long time ago, while Carrie Fisher joked about being the one responsible.

That first article mentions that the writer would have liked to have seen Han and Boba Fett fight and I strongly disagree. For one thing, if Ford was finally getting his wish it seems wrong to have Boba be the one to do it because it ultimately robs Han of his victory. For another, as I noted recently, Boba Fett is overrated and there doesn’t need to be this huge rivalry. Han won, get over it!
