Prince Harry Wants To Be The New Han Solo – And We Have The Pics To Prove It

Call off the search to find the new Han Solo in the upcoming new Star Wars spin-off film, as it looks like we’ve found our man.

He comes from a pretty privileged background and though he doesn’t seem to have done much previously acting work, he’s definitely giving it his all. See the pic below for proof.


Good for Prince Harry for finally trying to get a proper job after leaving the army last year. And nice try William, but you’re going to have to give it more welly than that if you want Hollywood to come knocking.

Actor Alden Ehrenreich is reportedly the favourite to portray young Han Solo in the Star Wars spin-off, but Prince Harry is now boldly throwing himself into the mix, heading down to Pinewood Studios with his big bro.

Well, alright, that’s not actually what happened. Harry and William went down to the Star Wars production workshops at Pinewood to “recognise the wealth of fantastic British creative talent involved in the production of the Star Wars films” and generally have the best, nerdiest day out ever. Some of the cast turned up too, including Daisy Ridley… and her prosthetic head…

Chewbacca – and his lovely mane…


High roller BB8…

Actual Luke Skywalker Mark Hamill…

And Peckham’s own John Boyega…

Harry even got to try his hand at flying…

Didn’t they have a lovely day!
