Lucasfilm might not seem that interested in developing another Han Solo movie after Solo: A Star Wars Story bombed at the box office back in 2018, however, it seems like Young Han Solo star Alden Ehrenreich is into the idea of exploring the man that he became at the end of the movie.

Speaking in an interview with the Happy Sad Confusedpodcast, Ehrenreich talks about the Star Wars spinoff movie and how he would love to play the version of Han Solo that came out at the end of the film – charming, sarcastic, and quick on his feet.


Sure, Solo wasn't entirely an origin story, but at the start of the film, Han was less ‘entrepreneurial' and shady than when we'd met Han in A New Hope.

"I would. It would have to be the right version of it," Ehrenreich shared with the hosts of the podcast, "What's cool and kind of free, in a way, is the real fun of [Han Solo], my favorite part of that character, is something that kicks in at the end of the movie. It's when he becomes that guy at the end, that's the guy we love. So getting to that, and going from there is interesting, so we'll see. But I think now they're being so inventive with how they're using Star Wars and putting out stories in a different way that maybe I could see some out of the box interesting iteration of it somewhere. We'll see, who knows?"

Star Wars fans are still holding on to the hope of a follow-up to Solo. Sure, the film might have been the very first Star Wars movie to fail at the box office, however, Solo was well-received by fans and by critics who enjoyed Ehrenreich's iteration of the classic Star Wars hero.


We'll just have to see whether Lucasfilm will set aside the film's box office failings and consider the fanbase's feelings towards the film. Crossing fingers.

The Skywalker saga is available for streaming on Disney+.
