In an interview with CBR, new Legacy writers Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman reveal the most information we’ve had about the comic’s revival yet.
It’s business as usual for how exactly she’s related to Han and Leia – it’ll be “a little bit of a mystery and we’re not going to be paying off anytime soon,” Hardman says. He does reveal that she’s not royalty, though:
A lot of the “Legacy” era has been about these larger-than-life Emperors and royalty — we’re taking this down to much more of a ground level. Ania Solo is somebody that is not a part of that world, and she doesn’t have a personal connection to it. She may have even turned her back on it.
“She’s living in a backwater, Outer Rim system. She runs a junkyard and she doesn’t have that many prospects, and that’s where we start things. Our story takes off there,” Bechko adds. And here’s one that may make some folks happy: “She’s not overly Force-sensitive.”
There’s more, of course, including who the two other characters on the cover are and what drew them to the comic.
