Solo: A Star Wars Story is out on Blu-ray today, and to celebrate that, we’re able to share an exclusive clip with you that goes behind the scenes of the Sabacc game between Han and Lando.

As you may remember, this was the iconic scene in the film that brought together our two scoundrels for the first time. However, this scene may not have turned out as you’d expected. Whereas many of us hoped to see him win the Millennium Falcon in the scene, that didn’t really happen here, as explained by writer Lawrence Kasdan:

“Particularly in the saga, where people feel they know what happened, you want them to see it in a different way. You want there to be wrinkles. That’s where it can be new and alive. So you thought you understood how it happened and then suddenly it happens a little differently.”

As shown in the clip, Han ended up losing hilariously, and it was only in the final few minutes of the film that we actually got to see Lando get his comeuppance.

Below is the official synopsis to Solo: A Star Wars Story:

“Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.”
