Alden Ehrenreich has fought off the competition to be crowned as the "new" face of Han Solo.
The 26-year-old actor known for his recent roles in Beautiful Creatures and Hail, Caesar! will portray the fan-favorite smuggler in Phil Lord and Christopher Miller's currently untitled young Han Solo spin-off film.
The Han Solo movie will be the second spin-off film, after Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and will be released between the main saga debuts of Star Wars Episode VIII and IX. On Wednesday, director Christopher Miller tweeted that he can't wait to start filming.
Little is known about the story line for the Han Solo film, save that it features Han Solo in his twenties. With the old Expanded Universe out of the way, anything could happen, although it would be hard to resist a Boba Fett or Lando Calrissian reference in there somewhere.
The Han Solo movie is currently set for release on 25 May 2018.
