Han says, “I got a bad feeling about this” as the walls of the trash compactor start moving in “The Empire Strikes Back.” He also mutters the catchphrase as he, Luke, and Chewbacca are being readied to roast by the Ewoks. He added “really” that time. And, in “The Force Awakens” Han says the line because Rathtars have been unleashed on his vessel.
Finally, he mixes it up in “Rogue One.” Guiding the Millennium Falcon out of the maelstrom, he says, “I have a really good feeling about this!”
A Star Wars Easter Egg Landed in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”
Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises have a couple of things in common, namely, Lucasfilm and Harrison Ford. More than one Easter egg has wound up in each film.
Just as the hieroglyph of C-3P0 and R2-D2 is seen in “The Raiders of the Lost Ark,” a nightclub called Club Obi-Wan is featured in the opening sequence of “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (1984). Hint: George Lucas is responsible for the Indiana Jones franchise via Lucasfilm.
A Reference From C-3p0 Finally Makes Sense
In “The Empire Strikes Back,” C-3P0 memorably comments to Han, “Sir, I don’t know where your ship learned to communicate, but it has the most peculiar dialect.” The context of the bot’s confusion is not explained until “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” 40 years later.
In that 2018 movie, we learn that Lando’s droid, L3-37, was the peculiar droid C-3P0 was communicating with. We knew L3-37’s hardware was destroyed in battle, but we didn’t know her software was uploaded to the Millennium Falcon, and that is who C-3P0 refers to.
Lando Calrissian Utters the Famous Line
In “The Rise of Skywalker” Lando gets to deliver the refrain for the first time. He says, “I have a bad feeling about this” as he looks out a window and sees henchmen from the First Order coming after them.
It happens on the planet Pasaana just after he has divulged his alliance with Rey’s side.
“The Last Jedi” Does Not Contain the Line, “I Have a Bad Feeling About This” (In English)
“Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi” is the only movie of the Saga that doesn’t seem to contain the line. But it’s in there. Director Rian Johnson put our worries to rest when he revealed that the line is in the film, but it is spoken in droid speak.
Droid BB-8 says it to Poe in the Galactic Basic Standard language in “Episode VIII.” It can be heard during the opening battle scene.
