Ehrenreich confirmed he had signed a contract to play Solo in three movies and said he was anxious to step into the role again in future installments.

The Swiss Comic Con is Switzerland's largest convention for film, game, comic and cosplay fans and is considered one of the most attractive con's in the universe.

Lucasfilm's lobby is adorned with costumes and droids from numerous "Star Wars" movies, making it the unmistakable home of the company that generates some of the most popular content in mass culture. "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is rated PG-13 and opens nationwide May 25.


Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy previously stated that Favreau will bring "the flawless mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe". The film's cast includes Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany, Ian Kenny, Warwick Davis, and Jon Favreau.

Most agree it's a good time. It does take a bit to get used to Alden as Han, but after 30 minutes or so your brain adjusts.

While many other characters have made cameos in "Star Wars" films that tell stories before the original trilogy, the franchise has stayed away from showing Solo as a younger man.


"Solo: A Star Wars Story" will be released into theaters nationwide on Friday, May 25th. "It's slow to find its footing, but picks up in the second act, and it's definitely fun", wrote Eisenberg. "Overall I liked it, didn't love it". But what we can see are clues from the tweets of those who were lucky enough to catch an early showing. The Kasdans [screenwriters Jonathan and Lawrence Kasdan] nail the character of Han Solo.
