The entertaining Solo gives the galaxy's favorite rogue a Star Wars Story of his own

It was one common complaint-as-question among many leveled at the Star Wars prequel trilogy: With all the Jedi, Padawans, royalty, and Gungans running around, where was the Han Solo figure—the lovable rogue to cut through the series’ considerable mumbo-jumbo?

Harrison Ford likes to present himself as a bit of a curmudgeon, even when his underlying goodness shines through his gruff exterior, but apparently he had a very productive chat with Alden Ehrenreich last year to discuss the actor’s then-upcoming role as the young Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Ron Howard is a Star Wars fan, so there’s no need to worry about the Han Solo movie
