We’re still waiting for Lucasfilm to release some official pics from the Han Solo prequel, but the paparazzi is out in full force to get a first look at Alden Ehrenreich as the smuggler with a heart of gold.
The new pics seem to show Ehrenreich in costume, rocking that 1970s hair that Harrison Ford wore so well all those years ago. Along with what seems to be our first look at the new star in action, there’s also some cars and throwback Star Wars tech — and a few of those rides look like something straight out of a deep-space version of Mad Max: Fury Road.
The spinoff Anthology film is set in the years before the original Star Wars trilogy, and follows a younger Han Solo and Chewbacca on some adventures in the time leading up to A New Hope. Along with Ehrenreich, the film stars Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as Han’s mentor Beckett and Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton in undisclosed roles.
The film is set to open May 25, 2018.
The pics are courtesy of TMZ. We’ve embedded a few below. Head over to their website to see the rest.
