Production is currently underway on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story, the second in Lucasfilm‘s planned series of one-shot spin-offs to the Star Wars saga. Now we’ve said this before, but there’s a lot riding on this movie. While Rogue One proved that Star Wars flicks are just as popular as ever beyond the main saga, this one features the recasting of several key Star Wars characters and goes into the mysterious background of a certain double-crossing, no good swindler. But the images provided below demonstrates that, if nothing else, star Alden Ehrenreich certainly looks the part as young Han Solo.
Courtesy of the Pulitzer-eligable folks at TMZ, we get a new look at Ehrenreich on the Han Solo film, and it looks like the future legendary smuggler has been having a bad day so far with the scuffed up costume he’s wearing underneath that overcoat. On the other hand, it looks like Han is having a really great hair day. Like Harrison Ford’s style in ’77 but even more rock and roll. Check out the pics through TMZ’s Twitter feed.

Also interesting is all these various vehicles on display on set; it’s like hod rod hovercraft, or muscle cars from the 50s and 60s meets Luke’s speeder from the original Star Wars meets Mad Max. Perhaps this is some kind of tip of the hat to the classic film American Graffiti also from Star Wars creator George Lucas. Or perhaps young Han Solo is some kind of speed racer like Vin Diesel in The Fast and the Furious. (“I live my life a quarter parsec at a time.”) Whatever Chris Miller and Phil Lord are cooking up, it will surely be awesome.
The Young Han Solo Star Wars Story will be in theatres everywhere on May 25, 2018.
