Harrison Ford Surprises Alden Ehrenreich During 'Solo' Interview

By: Benjamin Hart

Solo: A Star Wars Story got some major buzz this week after the world premiere in Hollywood on Thursday night. The cast and crew were on hand to watch the film for the first time, sign autographs for fans, and, of course, discuss Solo with the media.

During one particular interview with Entertainment Tonight, Alden Ehrenreich, who the plays titular character, got more than he bargained for. While telling the story of how he had lunch with Harrison Ford after being cast in Solo, Ford himself strolled into the room unexpectedly behind Alden, jokingly telling the younger actor to get out of his chair. Solo director Ron Howard was also there to witness the legendary meeting. You can check it out for yourself below(From multiple angles):

In addition to this, at the Solo press conference earlier today, Ehrenreich explained that during their interaction Harrison told him that he had seen the film and "loved" it:

Harrison Ford was conspicuously absent from the Solo premiere this week, but it's nice to see him show support to Alden and speak highly of the film. If Han Solo liked the Han Solo movie, then it must be good, right?

Solo: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters on May 25th and stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!)  as Han Solo, Joonas Suotamo (The Last Jedi) as Chewbacca, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Qi'Ra, Woody Harrelson (True Detective) as Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) as L3-37, Thandie Newton (Westworld) as Val, and Paul Bettany (The Avengers) as Dryden Vos.  The film is directed by Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind), with a script by Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) and his son Jon Kasdan (The First Time).
