List Rules Vote up the actors who you think should play young Han Solo in the Star Wars spinoff movie, set for a May 2018 release.

on May 9, 2016, it was announced that Alden Ehrenreich was cast in this coveted role. Learn more about him here!

When it comes to Star Wars, Harrison Ford IS Han Solo - no ifs ands or buts about it. That's just science. But mother nature has this crafty way of aging people. And since not only are the Hollywood film gods making a new Han Solo movie, they're making a Han Solo prequel... which pretty much leaves Mr. Ford out of the running. Even with all the CG in the world it's time to cast a young successor for the role of biggest scoundrel and nerf-herder in the galaxy.

So it's time for some good old fashioned Han Solo casting by you the fans. We have the unfortunate task of choosing a new Han Solo actor - but sometimes hard work must be done. We'll need someone with swagger, bravado, comedy skills, and dramatic chops to show us where the greatest smuggler in this or any galaxy got his start. We must find a new Han Solo actor.

Who should play Han Solo? For this Star Wars spinoff movie we need to find a young Han Solo, someone preferably between the ages of 18 and 30. Why skew towards the young side? Harrison Ford himself was 35 when he originally took up the mantle, and since this is a prequel film, it will take someone in that younger Hollywood age group. It's time for Han Solo casting! Vote up your favorite picks for who should don the vest below, or add any other talented actors you think would make a great young Han Solo.
