Here’s your FIRST LOOK at Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo…

May 19th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Is it weird that these images both excite and upset us?

We know that actor Alden Ehrenreich is playing Han Solo in the new standalone Star Wars movie but we also know that this means Harrison Ford is officially no longer solo.

And that sort of makes us sad.

But Ehrenreich is now the future of Han Solo in the Star Wars universe and now we have our first loon at him as Solo and, although he’s not wearing the signature white shirt and black waistcoat, he definitely looks the part.

The images are from the set of the movie and also feature vehicles and costumes from the new anthology movie.

Can anyone else possibly play Solo? We’ll all find out next Spring.

Alden Ehrenreich will star as Han Solo alongside Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams, Ian Kenny, Warwick Davis and Emilia Clarke.

Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the Han Solo movie story arrives from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. Slated for a May 25, 2018 release, the Han Solo movie will be executive produced by Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin and co-produced by Will Allegra.

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….
