Han Solo Research Paper

Satisfactory Essays
The search for the new Han Solo continues, but it looks like Disney and Lucasfilm might already have a favorite on who could possibly take over Harrison Ford’s iconic Star Wars role. Although the studios have already narrowed down their list to only three contenders, there have been reports that Hail, Caesar! actor Alden Ehrenreich is proving to be better than Taron Egerton and Jack Reynor at embodying the young Millennium Falcon captain!
According to Deadline, Ehrenreich is currently the frontrunner for the coveted role. If the Blue Jasmine star ends up becoming the next Han Solo, this would mean that Ehrenreich actually beat 2,500 other young hopefuls just to be a half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder.
Ehrenreich may not look a lot like Ford, but the Stoker actor does have a certain rebellious charm that a younger Han would possess. In addition to that, he appears to have some gunslinging skills that he could probably use later on with a blaster. Hopefully, Greedo will not come after him in the Star Wars standalone film, because we know what could happen next.
