    Woody Harrelson thinks so, and Steven Spielberg might be hinting at it too. In recent interviews with Entertainment Tonight, Harrelson gave his take on the Untitled Han Solo Film’s challenges, humor, and more; while Spielberg gave his opinion on Alden Ehrenreich’s acting skills.







    Naturally, Harrelson was asked about the director change up, but he didn't seem too concerned, stating that “Fortunately, the force is still very much with us,” and that he's happy to see Ron Howard brought on board.



    He also discussed that the film might be comedic in some way as well as praising Ehrenreich’s performance.

    [​IMG]



    Harrelson isn't the only one that believes that Ehrenreich is a comedian at heart. Steven Spielberg told Entertainment Tonight about how he was the one that discovered Ehrenreich but always thought that he would be a comedian.










    What does that say for the tone of the Untitled Han Solo Film? Will it be a comedy? Or will it be as funny as most other Star Wars films? Let us know in the comments and in the Cantina.

    In that case, the title will be: HAN SHOT FIRST!

    Nah I think they'll take the serious option of a honest gripping title, although if you see the title speculation thread for this movie, some funny ones could appear.

    Well, I hope not. Maybe it's just me, but after having read that article, I'm again seriously questioning the approach how Lucas Film are handling the Han Solo movie.

    Weren't the directors fired because they wanted to make the movie very comical?

    Agreed it will be funny, knowing Han Solo already in the future, he gave us fun memories.

    I mean, most Star Wars films have some degree of comedy in them- the witty exchanges in the OT, the slapstick of Jar Jar, the dialogue in the prequels :)p)...

    I'm sure the film will feel much more lighthearted being a spinoff focusing on a more "piratey" character rather than a saga of Jedi or a spinoff of a grim suicide mission (see: Rogue One).

    No, it will be dark, moody, hopeless and won't contain any humour, because humour is for wussbags. True adult content needs to be as dour as possible, or otherwise I won't see it. *chews on solid rocks*

    Let's see let's see.

    AOTC was dark. As was ROTS, TFA & R1. Time 4 sum lightheartedness.

    Big difference between being funny and being a comedy.

    Lethal Weapon is funny. It isn't a true comedy.

    I agree, it won't be a comedy but I think it will have it's funny moments like we have always seen with Han Solo.
