Phil Lord and Chris Miller assembled a dream team to create their Han Solo spinoff Star Wars anthology film. The cast is incredible: Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Alden Ehrenreich as the young Solo. The screenplay was by longtime Star Wars creative force Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon. The cinematographer was Bradford Young, whose quickly proven himself as one of the most talented young D.P.s in the business with films like Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Selma, and Arrival. If you’re gonna make a Han Solo movie, these sure seem like the men and women you want to do it with.
We haven’t seen too much of the Han Solo movie, except for all that hot goss about why Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the project, but the set photos have been trickling in. Yesterday, a couple pictures surfaced from the set of our young Han (Alden Ehrenreich), Chewbacca, and Woody Harrelson’s mysterious character together and in costume on set.
Are you seated, Star Wars fam? You need to be seated for what you’re about to see because — and there is no easy way to break this to you — something is up with Alden Ehrenreich’s ’70s-style hair in this new photo from the set of the young Han Solo movie. And that something is not necessarily a good something. In fact, he looks less like he’s playing the junior version of Harrison Ford’s iconic hero in Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s untitled Star Wars spinoff, and more like he’s playing…you know what? I’m going to give you a chance to back away now before I say something that royally screws up your Friday vibes.
