Disney have ended their long search and have finally found their young Han Solo – Alden Ehrenreich!

Ehrenreich saw off big competition to land one of the most coveted leading roles in Hollywood today. He steps into the immortal shoes of Harrison Ford to play Han Solo as a young man, space-smuggling his way through the galaxy.

Alden Ehrenreich, aged 26, stole his scenes in the recent Universal release Hail, Caesar! and has appeared in Blue Jasmine, Running Wild, Beautiful Creatures and Stoker.

Lucasfilm’s yet-untitled Star Wars spin-off movie promises much and with Alden Ehrenreich now cast, expect the project to move forward at light-speed.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller (the men responsible for 21 Jump Street and The LEGO Movie) are directing the young Han Solo film from a script by Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) and his son Jon Kasdan.

The Han Solo movie is scheduled to hit cinemas on 25th May 2018.
