Months back we heard from several sources that the upcoming Han Solo standalone film had found it's young Han Solo in the form of actor Alden Ehrenreich. Just now, at the Future Filmmakers panel at Star Wars Celebration Europe, directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord confirmed that Ehrenreich is the new Solo! Not only did they announce the actor's casting, but Alden Ehrenreich himself appeared on stage to discuss his new role. Our very own Dominic Jones was in the audience and here's what he saw and heard:
