'Han Solo' Star Alden Ehrenreich on Donald Glover Casting and a Younger Chewbacca
Variety jumped at the chance to question Aldren Ehrenreich about his Han Solo film during the premiere for Rules Don't Apply. While Ehrenreich couldn't say much, he was glowing in his praise for Donald Glover, who has been cast as Lando Calrissian, and joked about Chewbacca's role.
“I’m allowed to say that I’m really excited about Donald Glover’s casting," he said. “I think he’s going to be great in the role because he’s such a talented and interesting guy. And I can say that Chewbacca’s in the film, although I know that’s not a huge spoiler.”
Whether Chewbacca will be any different in terms of appearance, "he's as much younger as I am in the film. So, I think he’s like 190 — or something — years old. I don’t think there’s a huge growth spurt for him from 190 to 210, so he’s probably about the same height.”
The Han Solo spin-off film will be out May 25, 2018.
