6) Alden Ehrenreich is (Officially) Han Solo
The event also finally saw the official reveal of Hail Caesar! actor Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo in the upcoming spin-off prequel film. It’s a bit of a bummer for Disney and Lucasfilm that the headline announcement of SWC was actually revealed months before, but they still got to properly unveil him to the world.
The attending crowds were impressed with the 26-year-old star, who The Independent describes as having an “easy charm, and enough of a passing resemblance to Harrison Ford to make the character work.”
Ehrenreich also revealed that, like everyone else in the world, he was a childhood fan of the character. For proof, a photo of his favourite Han Solo action figure was shared with the crowd.
Guys, dreams do come true.
