It's been more than two years since the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story and yet most people still remember it as the lowest-grossing Star Wars film in history. However, that doesn't seem to bother Alden Ehrenreich, who admitted that he's moved on since playing the young Han Solo in the Ron Howard movie.
Ehrenreich recently spoke to The Independent where he stated that the Star Wars movie is "not a huge part of my life anymore." However, he also pointed out that there was something odd about how people remember Solo.
"My sense is that there was a really clear disconnect between the way it was really received and then the stories that came out about it. That we had a troubled production or whatever. And it's not really a story that the movie did totally fine. It didn't make a billion dollars but it did fine and people liked it – but that's not interesting," Ehrenreich said. "What's interesting is: ‘This is the biggest movie of all time and it was absolutely a disaster.'"
Interestingly, Ehrenreich confessed that he accepted the criticism before declaring that he had fun working on Solo.
"I knew, no matter what happened, that I was putting myself in a situation where people would be saying things about me. But honestly, that whole experience felt like this huge, high-seas adventure," he said.
He's right about that. Although Solo may not have been the biggest Star Wars film, it was truly fun to watch.
Ehrenreich's most recent project is the live-action adaptation of Aldous Huxley's novel Brave New World that aired on NBC Peacock in July.
