A New Han Solo Has Been Chosen

The “Star wars celebration” fan convention took place in London over the weekend.

Cast members of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” were on hand for the opening, but the event saved some of the biggest news for the closing day when it was announced Alden Ehrenreich would portray young Han Solo in an upcoming stand alone movie about the smuggler during his younger years.

“He was literally the first person to audition,” said Phil Lord, who is directing the Solo project alongside his Lego Movie co-director Chris Miller.

Of course, Ehrenreich will be stepping into some big shoes — those of Harrison Ford, whose star-making turn as the galactic smuggler in the original Star Wars made for one of the most iconic and virile performances in movie history.
