Alden Ehrenreich is “Excited” About Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian

In a recent interview, Han Solo actor Alden Ehrenreich talked to Variety about the recent casting of Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian in the untitled spinoff film.

Ehrenreich talked about his excitement regarding Glover’s casting.

“I’m allowed to say that I’m really excited about Donald Glover’s casting. 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”. 

The actor then talked about seeing a potentially younger Chewbacca.

“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.”

This is the first confirmation we’ve gotten that Chewie will in fact be in the movie, but that was a given; a film about Han Solo would be incomplete without his partner.

The untitled Han Solo spinoff film is slated to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
