Man, Han Solo is old
For whatever reason, I got curious about how old Han Solo is in the Star Wars Expanded Universe - the novels, comics, etc. - and so went on Wookieepedia to look it up. According to that, Han was born in 29 BBY (Before Battle of Yavin, which is used as Year Zero in Star Wars). The most recent novel he's been in is set in 44 ABY (After the Battle of Yavin). Now, I'm no good at the maths, but that would make him 73 years old.
Then, I decided to check to see how old Luke and Leia were. According to Wookieepedia, they were born in 19 BBY, ten years after Han, making them 63 years old. You know who's really old, though? Chewbacca. If Chewbacca were still alive, he'd be 244.
