The casting is finally over and Stars Wars can finally rest their weary eyes knowing that the franchise has been placed in what appears to be very capable hands for the man taking over as Han Solo in the 2018 feature.
Alden Ehrenreich, who will almost definitely become a household name in about two years, has landed the coveted role of Han Solo for the Star Wars spin-off, which deals mainly with Solo’s life pre-Rebel Alliance. Ehrenreich beat out the likes of Scott Eastwood, Taron Egerton, Ansel Elgort, and several other up and coming Hollywood heart throbs for the role.
Shooting stars in January and it is expected that the Solo character will also appear in a cameo in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
