Drumroll! New Han Solo Announced!

Blasphemous header, I know!

Will anyone ever, really, truly befit the vest of Han Solo better than Harrison Ford?

Doubtful.

.. though Alden Ehrenreich will give it a red hot go, anyway.

The “Hail, Caesar!” actor has been chosen to headline Phil Lord & Chris Miller’s young “Han Solo” movie, likely titled “Han Solo : A Star Wars Story”.

Deadline first reported, a few weeks back, that Ehrenreich had emerged as the frontrunner to star as a young Solo in the pre-“New Hope” adventure. The newcomer bet a number of young twenty-something actors to the highly coveted role, including Dave Franco, Taron Egerton and Jack Reynor.

With co-director Miller tweeting that pic of the pistol yesterday, one had a feeling that a casting announcement wasn’t far away.

There you have it. What do you think of Disney’s choice?
