What if Harrison Ford played Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story? Watch the trailer here

Nick Acosta decided to take the trailers for Solo: A Star Wars Story and add in Harrison Ford. You can check it out below and this is what Nick had to say about it.

Solo: A Star Wars story opens May 26th. Whenever you recast an iconic character like Han Solo there will be controversy. Watching the trailer featuring new actor Alden Ehrenreich in the titular role it’s hard to get used to. By all accounts Alden seems like great actor and good guy. But I couldn’t help wonder what would this movie would look like if you could magically transport a young Harrison Ford to play his iconic character. So using a variety of digital compositing software and some editing tricks I tried to make that happen.

‘True Solo’ utilizes clips of Harrison Ford before he acted in the original Star Wars. I farmed movies, tv episodes and even still photographs that I graphed onto Alden Ehrenreich’s Face and animated. Notable clips are from his early roles in American Graffiti, The Conversation, and a very bizarre appearance on the 60’s sitcom “Love American Style.”
