That’s right, the man you see in the featured image (Alden Ehrenreich) has been chosen to play Han Solo in the upcoming, still untitled film focused on the incredibly popular smuggler made famous by Harrison Ford. Ehrenreich was introduced to the world as the new Han at a recent Star Wars celebration. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing the solo Han film from a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.
It’s about Han in his 20’s and is expected to shoot at the end of January or early February in the U.K.
Here’s hoping this new guy can carry the role. He’s certainly stepping into some big shoes.
