"No matter where you go, there you are."


Alden Ehrenreich is the young Han Solo


There have been many names mentioned, but the role of a young Han Solo has been cast. Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) will be playing the role made famous by Harrison Ford. He will star in a movie focusing on the early days of the famous Star Wars smuggler.

No plot details have been revealed, other than that the film will be set before A New Hope, like the other standalone film Rogue One. Production is not expected to begin until January. Sources told Variety earlier this year that the reason for the January start may be so that the character may cameo in Rogue One, giving the production time to shoot the scene that introduces the new Han Solo.

The film will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller with Kathleen Kennedy producing. It is due out on May 25, 2018.
