Phil Lord and Chris Miller have officially unveiled Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo.
Speaking during a Future Filmmakers panel at the annual Star Wars Celebration convention, the directors announced Ehrenreich as the iconic character in an upcoming Star Wars prequel spinoff.
The 26-year old was strongly rumoured for the role back in May, but only now do we have official confirmation.
Lord revealed that 3,000 actors auditioned for the role, but it has now gone to “literally the first person to walk through the door”.
The movie will act as an origin story for Solo. It is due for release in 2018.
