    Why wouldn't it be a Solo movie, are you afraid he might do well?

    That looks like a huge change from his current look in real life

    Well, it's what we are supposed to believe Han looked like between the Han Solo Movie and ANH if they don't use any prosthetics/makeup/CGI in Ehreinreich, but you could also think that they could use some of these to make him look a little more like my picture.

    Yeah that's true as it's supposedly set a little over a decade before ANH .

    Oh, is that confirmed? In that case, just a LITTLE makeup would be enough LOL. I would find it hard to believe that Han looked once like Ehreinreich, they need to change his look somehow, even if it's very subtle and as long as it doesn't disturb the actor.

    Not confirmed but it was generalized.

    for the record Ewan McGregor wore nose prosthetics and a hair piece for ROTS to look more like Aelc Guinnes .

    Oh, ok, I hope they make it 10 years before ANH, so Han would be 19.
    As for Ewan, I had never noticed! They should totally make it with Alden too.

    I wish so too, some makeup or prosthetics would be enough, I just hope it's not with CGI though.

    Rian Johnson will probably turn them on to whoever did the prosthetics in Looper.

    Great idea! And this case should be easier than making JGL look like Bruce Willis.

    Just so long as he as the chin scar, or they at least explain how he got it, like in The last Crusade.

    Hmm I don't know if they need to put up prosthetics or CGi that guy. We know it is not Harrison because he can't move like a 20 year old. Why not accept it as what it is, a movie with actors not a cosplay convention. Different actors look different and it is more about acting for which you need mimic muscles, that you don't cover in plastic. Sometimes it is easier to digest that it is not a certain actor if you don't try to hard to cpoy the old one, look at the Heath Ledger Joker vs Nicolson Joker. The audience is smart enough to make a difference between acting and imitation.

    The difference being that Harrison Ford created this character that is so intertwined with himself that it's hard to accept anyone else playing the character. It's also a connected universe that prides itself on continuity and canon. Comparing this to the Joker makes no sense cause that's a reboot with no ties to previous films.

    It hapend and the comparison works on the level of actors, yes fans weren't happy to hear that but the actor picked up that role and made it his.
    Of course he identifies with him, but with all due respect to Mr Ford he can say what he wants, even the negative stuff about Star Wars and and never reprising his role again and so on, he did enough for Star Wars and can say whatever he wants, and he did:
    "I don't think it's about being like me, it's about us being like Han Solo. "
