But who’s going to play the young Chewie?
Alden Ehrenreich was just announced to play the young Han Solo in a future as-of-yet-named-but-will-probably-be-named THE HAN SOLO CHRONICLES or something like that. Ehrenreich has been in a few memorable films, no more impressive than the Coen bros. HAIL, CAESAR! and a bit role in STOKER.
Ehrenreich looks fine for it (no scar on the chin, though), but the question remains whether a film based around a young Han Solo is entirely necessary. The rumor is that Ehrenreich will have at least a cameo in this December’s ROGUE ONE, and if true, we’ll at least get a taste of what his interpretation will look like in a feature length release. No date yet when that will happen.
