'Solo' Star Alden Ehrenreich Defends Fired Directors, Reveals Three-Film Deal

And the thing is, it may not be the last we've seen of young Solo. Or maybe if they are planning other standalone movies (perhaps a young Lando Calrissian movie with Donald Glover?) there's a plan to have Ehrenreich reappear in something like that.

It makes sense, given how hugely successful the films tend to be and how actors are very often cast off the back of them and the necessity of ensuring that they're available for shooting when needed. After two teasers, a full-length theatrical trailer, and multiple TV spots for Solo: A Star Wars Story, I'm sold on Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo.

Finally, Ehrenreich also mentioned that he had signed on for three films, then stating, "I don't know if that's officially, uh, public".

And the directors broke the news to Ehrenreich that they had been sacked, he told Esquire. Moments ago, we published a story about his take on the huge shake-ups that Solo went through, and now we're happy to share a small tease that the actor let slip about his future in the titular role.

Ehrenreich said he had no warning of the sudden replacement, but denied having anything to do with Lord and Miller's exit; rumors had arisen that he complained to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. On a personal level, it felt emotional, for them to be going after we'd set out on that course together.

Lloyds posts 23% jump in profits

The TV spot also offers up a line from Woody Harrelson's Tobias Beckett: "If you come with us, you're in this life for good".

"But I think at that point, they were kind of on board with (the decision), too".

The other thing to consider is that Disney and Lucasfilm don't necessarily have to use Alden Ehrenreich in three Star Wars movies.

"For a crew to do that would mean they hated [Lord and Miller], which was not by any stretch the case", he said.

"He knew how to navigate a tricky situation, and nearly from the first or second day everybody pretty quickly recharged and got excited again about the movie", he said.
