Alden Ehrenreich will be the new Han Solo, in the upcoming Star Wars standalone prequel.
While many were saddened by Han Solo’s demise in the most recent Star Wars VII ( episode 7 ), those same people may be very happy to hear that their beloved character will continue on screen in an upcoming Star Wars prequel starring the infamous smuggler.
The prequel will portray Han Solo as younger than we have ever seen before and perhaps even more in his early prime days, as the film will be before he was recruited to work for the rebels.
Alden Ehrenreich who is 26, will portray the beloved character, as he has just become a star as of recent while portraying Hobie Doyle in ‘Hail, Caesar!’
Following in the footsteps of the soon to be released ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’, this Han Solo prequel is rumored to be titled ‘Han Solo: A Star Wars Story’ and will also take place in-between episodes 3 and 4, giving viewers a bit more of a Han Solo origin story.
While Harrison Ford will always be the Han Solo we know and love, I am all for as many Star Wars movies as possible . That being said Keep The Force on coming !
