Let's be honest: aside from all the big dogs at Lucasfilm, including George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy, the only other person you'd truly hope loves your Han Solo spin-off film is Harrison Ford. The American actor played the rogue pilot in the original Star Wars trilogy returning for The Force Awakens in 2015. This prequel, titled Solo, will depict the events leading up to Lucas' 1977 original with Alden Ehrenreich playing a younger incarnation of the character. In a tell-all interview with Variety, director Ron Howard reveals that Ford has seen the film twice and “adores” it. “I had never heard Harrison effusive about anything, and he was raving about it,“ Howard commented. ”He said, ‘Alden nailed it. He made it his own'.“ Read more Alden Ehrenreich on playing Han Solo This news would have come as a sigh of relief to all following the tumultuous events which led to Howard's employment - he replaced original filmmakers Phil Lord and … [Read more...] about Harrison Ford gives verdict on new Star Wars spinoff Solo

For the last year, it would be fair to say, the buzz around Solo: A Star Wars Story has been somewhat negative. First, there was the director change, Ron Howard replacing Phil Lord and Christopher Miller after the pair had “creative differences” with LucasFilm. Then there were reports that Alden Ehrenreich, who portrays the titular iconic character previously portrayed by Harrison Ford, was struggling with the role. Earlier this year, fans were also growing increasingly worried over the lack of promotional material surrounding Solo. With no teasers, trailers, or official posters released in tangent with The Last Jedi, people thought Solo would not be ready for the May release and would be delayed until December – a month now synonymous with Star Wars. That all changed in February, when the first teaser was released. Solo existed and looked impressive.

Disney treated attendees at Las Vegas movies convention CinemaCon to footage from its hotly-anticipated "Solo: A Star Wars Story" on Tuesday as it whetted appetites for its upcoming slate of blockbusters. While the world's largest movie studio traditionally keeps back its juiciest surprises for its own biennial D23 Expo, it delighted delegates with footage of the first meeting between Alden Ehrenreich's young Han Solo and Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian. Footage from the Ron Howard movie -- the second "Star Wars" spinoff after "Rogue One" (2016) -- showed the pair's encounter in a sleazy dive bar on a snowbound world, watched by a colorful menagerie of new alien characters.
