SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Star Alden Ehrenreich Confirms He Has A 3 Picture Deal With LucasFilm

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Star Alden Ehrenreich Confirms He Has A 3 Picture Deal With LucasFilm

Alden Ehrenreich has the unenviable task of stepping into the shoes of Harrison Ford this December in Solo: A Star Wars Story but if all goes well the actor just might reprise the role in the future...

There's a lot going against  Solo: A Star Wars Story, its production woes are at this point legendary and while it does seem from the marketing as though director Ron Howard has put together a fine and serviceable film, anticipation is certainly mixed. A big point of contention for many is the central casting of Hail Caesar!  actor Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo. 

Obviously, this always comes whenever a new version of an iconic character is attempted, but it can't have been helped following set rumors of Ehrenreich failing to bring the performance. Whether that's true or not remains to be seen but if he is a hit with audiences, we could well see him in further outings as the scruffy looking nerf herder and it's now been confirmed that he's already contracted for them. 

In an interview with Esquire magazine, Ehrenreich was asked how many he's signed up for and the actor let slip:

“Three. I don’t know if that’s officially, uh, public. But—yeah.” 


Now, this, of course, isn't to say that we should expect a Han Solo trilogy necessarily,  contracts for big franchises like this often have a multi-picture option drafted in. Felicity Jones was reported to have a sequel option written into her contract for Rogue One though the likelihood of that character returning is slim.

If Solo is a hit with audiences and fans alike, Ehrenheich included, however, we could see adventures of the character's youth continue. Though as many have already pointed out ahead of this film, after seeing the character over the course of four movies with an arc that goes from "hokey religions" to "it's true, all of it" what more do we need to explore? 

Maybe Han can show up in a possible Donald Glover led Lando film? Especially considering he looks set to steal the show and Billy Dee Williams has been currently absent from the sequel trilogy. Though all of this is speculation, we'll have a clearer idea of the desire for more Solo when the film opens 25th May 2018. 

What do you think? Would you like to see more of a young Han Solo? How do you feel about Alden Ehrenreich's casting? Leave your thoughts below.
