StarWars fans Wait for young han solo

The Sunday Guardian - - The Week -

LOS AN­GE­LES: The new, young Han Solo says he has “a good feel­ing about this” in a trailer for

re­vers­ing one of the best-known catch­phrases in the sci-fi movie fran­chise.

Yet fans are watch­ing to see if a lit­tle-known ac­tor can fill the shoes of Har­ri­son Ford, whose dry-wit­ted bounty hunter is one of the fran­chise’s most pop­u­lar char­ac­ters. All eyes will be on Alden Ehren­re­ich, 28, when Dis­ney’s

gets its world pre­miere in Los An­ge­les on Thurs­day ahead of an in­ter­na­tional roll­out on 23 May. is an ori­gin story set some 10 years be­fore the events of the 1977

movie, when Ford starred as the cyn­i­cal cow­boy space pi­lot. He reprised the role al­most 30 years later for

which at $2 bil­lion is the third big­gest-gross­ing film on record.

“Han Solo is my favourite char­ac­ter in and Har­ri­son Ford is a big part of that,” said Sarah Woloski, co-host with Tri­cia Barr and Teresa Del­gado of pod­cast Fan­girls Go­ing Rogue.

“But if Alden has the right swag­ger and at­ti­tude to pull that off, that’s more im­por­tant than be­ing a Har­ri­son Ford looka­like,” she said.
