Behind the scenesEdit
It was created by George Lucas shortly after the release of A New Hope in 1977 as part of the back-story of Han Solo. Coonee was never incorporated into Han's biography, despite the fact that Lucas developed it for the use of licensees in the Expanded Universe. However, the unused backstory is referred to as in-universe rumors in The Essential Atlas.
