Donald Glover Has A Brilliant Response To Loving Someone "Different"

Solo Premiere: How the Mysterious Star Wars Spinoff Played to Its First Audience

Ehrenreich was in the midst of answering a question about what advice the veteran actor gave him when they met for lunch before production began on Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Sitting down with Entertainment Tonight's Cameron Mathinson, an unsuspecting Ehrenreich was ambushed by Ford and Solo director Ron Howard, who is seen clearly enjoying the prank on his leading man.

By comparison, the just-launched Kipling "Star Wars" collection of backpacks, duffels, keychains and other accessories, priced $15 to $169, seem nearly sophisticated. "I wrote four [episodes] to show them what the show would be", he explained to Nerdist on the carpet.

The latest Star Wars movie did not have a smooth flight to the screen, but the director and cast of Solo say the scramble to remake the movie ultimately paid off, with early reaction ahead of the May 25 launch largely positive. As he casually strolled up to the cameras, it took Ehrenreich a second to realize who was standing next to him.

Harrison Ford surprised Alden Ehrenreich during his ET junket interview for Solo: A Star Wars Story, after missing the film's Los Angeles premiere earlier in the week. Others join him for the ride, too, including a younger version of Lando Calrissian.

That timeline, between Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will also be the focus of Resistance, a new animated series from Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni.

Directed by Ron Howard from a script written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany and Ian Kenny.
