Image of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo surfaces


A new image of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo surfaces for the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars story film.

Ron Howard had a unique way of announcing the title for the upcoming Han Solo film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, when he dropped the news via his social media account, with a little help from Joonas Suotamo aka Chewbacca.

Less creatively, an image of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo has surfaced, displaying the scoundrel amongst other Disney movie stars.

I’ve had my doubts like I’m sure many of you’ve had, but this picture is the spitting image of Harrison Ford’s persona of Han Solo, don’t you think?

The more we receive news or even updates by Ron Howard himself, more excited I get about the film itself. But, will Eierenrich be able to fill the shoes of the legendary Ford?

Absolutely not. But, no one can recreate entirely the character that Ford made his own. However; that’s not saying that Ehrenreich won’t make the role special too. Give him a fighting chance.

In fact, I believe he will do a top-notch job as Han Solo, with a supporting cast to aid in the greatness of the character. Having Donald Glover by his side during the film will bring out the best of Han Solo in Ehrenreich, who is as well versed an actor — and rapper — as anyone in the entertainment industry.

Seeing this new image adds to the anticipation and craving of wanting to see the very first trailer for Solo, which I’m holding out hope we will get at the premiere of The Last Jedi.

The now titled Solo: A Star Wars Story stars:

  • Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo.
  • Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.
  • Woody Harrelson as Beckett.
  • Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) in an unnamed role.
  • Thandie Newton (Westworld) in an unnamed role.
  • Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Amazon’s Fleabag) in an unnamed role.
  • Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
  • Ian Kenny (Game of Thrones) in an unnamed role.
