From the moment it was announced that we were going to get a new Star Wars trilogy, with a number of new Star Wars spinoff movies, fans around the world were giving their ideas as to what they think should happen with the universe. One of the most talked about spinoff ideas, was for a Han Solo movie, focusing on the younger years of the character, something which Disney clearly agreed with.
Disney confirmed that they were going to make a young Han Solo movie, which led to a lot of discussions about which actor would be ideal to take on the role that was made iconic by Harrison Ford. We have heard of the actors who have been in the running for the role, and now it has been confirmed that the talented actor Alden Ehrenreich has been cast as he young Han Solo in the Star Wars spinoff.
This news seems to have divided the Star Wars fans, with some delighted at the casting news, while others feel that they have made the wrong choice. One excited fan beamed, "WOW! Alden is perfect for Han Solo, he has everything you could want from someone taking over from Harrison Ford. Great choice." Meanwhile, a disgruntled fan moaned, "Not quite sure what they were thinking with this one. He looks nothing like Han Solo and he's not even that good an actor. This movie will bomb."
We have to admit that we were quite surprised that they chose Alden Ehrenreich to play Han Solo in the Star Wars spinoff but, while we have not seen a great deal of his work, he does seem a solid enough actor to pull it off. With that said, we are going to save our judgement on the decision for when the movie finally comes out.
