Clearly, Johnson was simply joking and to take his remark critically could be ridiculous…however let’s give it some thought for a second. Might Da 5 Bloods truly be SW canon? Effectively, there was a Darkish Horse comedian that featured an unlikely Indiana Jones/Han Solo crossover, with the archeologist stumbling upon the stays of his space-faring doppelgänger within the Millennium Falcon. This means that faces can recur within the Star Wars universe, millennia aside, maybe through reincarnation. So, possibly Hanoi’s a reincarnated Paige Tico?
Johnson’s tweet, which has clocked up practically 15ok likes on the time of writing, has additionally received people speaking about their appreciation for each Paige as a personality and Ngo as a performer. Within the replies, one fan thanked Johnson for introducing a small-time heroine like Paige into the saga.
Rian, you have been in a position to present us, in lower than 5 minutes, the entire perspective of struggle from a typical insurgent soldier
She wasn’t a Jedi. She wasn’t an attractive smuggler from Tatooine. She was only a insurgent, and she or he turned the star of the film throughout these 5 minutes
Thanks, king ❤
