|A life less ordinary! Alden Ehrenreich as the new Han Solo!|
He spent a lot of his childhood playing with the original KENNER Star Wars toys, now Alden Ehrenreich gets to play one of the franchise's ultimate heroes onscreen, and ride in practical toys made spectacularly real, like the Millennium Falcon, for the all-new Solo: A Star Wars Story, out now in cinemas worldwide. He's still a youngster in the industry, and yet Alden has worked with some of the finest and experienced names in the world of Hollywood directors, from the Coen Brothers, to Warren Beatty, to Francis Ford Coppola, and, in a twist of fate prior linked to the destiny of Harrison Ford, he'd also be 'discovered' by Spielberg and casting director and friend/adviser to Coppola and Lucas: Fred Roos!

Signed on for two more potential movies in the Lucas saga, the future looks brighter than ever for Alden, who certainly gives his all in this first outing, with talent and well-honed instincts shining through as Han, whilst importantly proving a satisfying successor to an impressed Ford.
Welcome to the Star Wars family, Alden!
