This past spring, Alden Ehrenreich made his debut as Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story. To prepare for the role, he did more than just watch all the episodes in the saga. He even had lunch with the legendary Harrison Ford! Watch this video to get a peek into Ehrenreich’s experience becoming Han Solo, and learn all about a snowball fight which became his favorite on-set moment:
If only we could’ve been part of this snowball fight from a galaxy far, far away. Or to be exact, according to Ehrenreich, with the cast and crew of Solo: A Star Wars Story atop the beautiful Dolomites of Italy. He continued:
“We had to get the light right all day, so it was kind of this funny experience of waiting around and just hanging out on top of this beautiful mountain. And Woody, being Woody, started throwing snowballs at people, and so we ended up having quite a big snowball fight.”
The best part is that this snowball fight made it into the film! What a heartwarming moment. And it looks like Ehrenreich had a bonding moment with Ford as well, and he only had good things to say about the legendary actor:
“It didn’t feel right to go into it without spending some time with him … he was super encouraging, very supportive, and it felt great to walk into it knowing we had his blessing.”
We are super excited to watch Solo: A Star Wars Story every day now that it is available on Digital, Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and Movies Anywhere—wearing our Han Solo-inspired jacket from HerUniverse, of course.
