Disney/Lucasfilm has found their young Han Solo.

Alden Ehrenreich will be taking over the Han Solo mantle from Harrison Ford, who first appeared as the captain of Millennium Falcon in 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope, as well as The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Ford and the character made a triumphant return in 2015's The Force Awakens, the movie that rebooted the George Lucas-created space opera franchise and set in motion standalone and spin-off films.

For the Disney and Lucasfilm production, Lord and Miller (21 Jump Street) will direct from a script from father-son writing duo, Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.

The Han Solo spin-off is scheduled for release sometime in 2018.
