Ron Howard shares a new look at Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo

September 7th, 2017 by Marc Comments

While we’re all in a tizzy over the news that Star Wars Episode IX has lost director Colin Trevorrow, we almost forgot to share this little nugget.

Ron Howard, now directing the Han Solo Standalone Movie, has shared a new image of the crew working on the set and it’s certainly an intriguing look behind the scenes.

However, if you look really close…

There’s star Alden Ehrenreich as the titular himself:

We admit that it’s not the best image of him in the world but we can see the Harrison Ford hair-do there and he definitely has a Han-like look of determination on his face.

Check out Howard’s original Tweet below:

The Han Solo standalone film arrives on May 25th, 2018

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
