With a slew of Star Wars films planned for the next few years, one that’s been generating some speculation is Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. The standalone film is the first to explore the scruffy-looking nerfherder’s smuggling past, and now they have their lead actor: Alden Ehrenreich. The 26 year-old American has been rumored for the part, and now it’s become official. Not much is known about the smuggler’s life prior to A New Hope, but this film should help answer questions like how he and Chewy became friends, his early dealings with Jabba, and how he made the Kessel Run he’s always bragging about.
Aside from a projected 2018 release date, no other information has been released.
