Han Solo actor confirmed!

Earlier today at the Star Wars Celebration Europe event, we had official confirmation of the new star of the as-yet-untitled Han Solo standalone film.

Alden Ehrenreich!

John Boyega and Alden Ehrenreich

Alden Ehrenreich was recently seen in the Coen Brothers picture ‘Hail, Caesar!’ as cowboy actor Hobie Doyle, meaning he follows in the same footsteps as Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver in transferring from the Coens to the new Star Wars Universe.

Boyega offered Ehrenreich some wise words: “You’re gonna be fine… You’ve got that charm stuff down… And he’s smiling just like Han!”
