Star Wars Rebels fans finally got an answer to a question many of them have been asking: have Hera and Han Solo ever met? Yes, and Hera positively owned him.

It makes sense when you think about it. Pilots have their own circles and both Han and Hera are skilled enough to have crossed paths at some point, especially when you consider that they both fly Corellian light freighters, are both known to have done a little smuggling and have ships that have very similar max speeds. More than one fan has even speculated that Hera has flown the Kessel Run. 

Simply put, yes. They've met -- and if their conversation in the new Forces of Destiny "Imperial Feast" is any indication, this isn't the first time.

There's a lot of information here if you look. This proves both Hera and Chopper survived both the battle of Scarif and the Battle of Endor which, interestingly puts she and Iden Versio in the same place at the same time. Hera having a camp means she was likely running her own team during the battle, so now we're wondering who was on that team?

For now, we know Han told Hera the Ghost is the superior ship -- even if it was slightly coerced out of him. Here's hoping they meet again.
