Star Wars followers have been ready for his or her first have a look at Alden Ehrenreich as the brand new Han Solo. Now they’ve it, type of. As is incessantly the case nowadays, merchandise is the place the primary look has come from. A film fan in Arizona shared a picture on social media of a cup he acquired by means of a theater loyalty program (a Solo Cup, if you’ll). The cup is roofed in photographs of characters from upcoming movies, however one in every of them is Alden Ehrenreich, wanting just like the well-known smuggler. Test it out.
It isn’t actually that stunning that the primary place we see Han Solo is on the aspect of a movie theater soda cup. Very often we get our first have a look at film characters by means of toys or different merchandise. The timing of a film’s official reveals which have been dictated by a advertising plan are sometimes not the identical because the timing wanted by these answerable for merchandise, which leads to these kinds of issues truly hitting first.
Though, a part of the rationale we’re seeing this cup earlier than something official might be due to the delays that Solo: A Star Wars Story handled resulting from their change in directors in the midst of filming. If Solo had wrapped filming on schedule it is doable we might also have a trailer by now, and we’d have seen Alden Ehrenreich in costume there. Nonetheless, your entire Lucasfilm promotion plan doubtless needed to change resulting from delays, that means that the cup got here out earlier than the trailer.
If the picture appears to be like acquainted, that is since you’ve most likely seen it earlier than. Whereas that is completely a picture of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, it does not seem like one he posed for in costume. His head is sort of actually photoshopped (or artistically rendered) from the cast image that was launched across the time that filming on Solo: A Star Wars Story received underway. That does not make the picture any much less acceptable. Certainly, whoever made the cup received the rights to make use of the picture, and it was nearly actually provided by an official supply (both that, or they’re going to be a lawsuit coming shortly) however the cup wanted the picture earlier than any official photographs of the actor could be accessible, and so this was completed as a substitute. Examine the smile above to the picture beneath.
Because the picture actually got here from official sources, we are able to assume that that is fairly near what Alden Ehrenreich will appear to be after we see him in Solo: A Star Wars Story subsequent 12 months. It appears to be like like we most likely would anticipate a younger Han Solo to look. There isn’t any cause to imagine the character’s private fashion was all that completely different from the unique Star Wars. We’ll get to see the actual factor when Solo arrives in Could.
