While promoting his new film Rules Don't Apply directed by Warren Beatty the super talented up-and-coming actor Alden Ehrenreich spoke with the good folks at Variety about his highly anticipated role as the young Han Solo, in the young Han Solo spin-off film.
Even though the actor couldn't say much he did express his excitement about working with Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and confirmed that we will be seeing a younger incarnation of Chewbacca.
"I'm allowed to say that I’m really excited about Donald Glover’s casting. I think he’s going to be great in the role because he’s such a talented and interesting guy. And I can say that Chewbacca’s in the film, although I know that’s not a huge spoiler. He’s as much younger as I am in the film, so, I think he’s like 190 — or something — years old. I don’t think there’s a huge growth spurt for him from 190 to 210, so he’s probably about the same height.”
While its not much, any cool little snippet of the Young Han Solo project is pretty cool and interesting. Stay tuned for more on the highly anticipated spin-off film. As always, thanks for stopping by ECMOVIEGUYS!
The untitled Young Han Solo film is currently slated to hit theaters on May 25th, 2018.
