Woody Harrelson Won't Call SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY "Epic" But Says It Could Be Really Funny

When asked if he felt working on Solo: A Star Wars Story felt "epic," actor Woody Harrelson, whose role in the film remains a mystery, shared his thoughts on the projects. And its not what you think...

Save for a few set photos not much is known about Disney and Lucasfilm's next standalone Star Wars film, Solo: A Star Wars Story. We know the production process has been pretty rocky as original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired and replaced by Ron Howard, who turned around and reportedly reshot at least half of the movie.

Until we see some official teasers or trailers, the jury remains out on the controversial project, which sees actor Alden Ehrenreich step into the role of the iconic smuggler Han Solo and attempt to fill the legendary shoes of Harrison Ford.

Creating an origin film for a character as iconic as Han Solo is no easy feat, but actor Woody Harrelson, whose role in the film remains a mystery, seems pretty confident. While he stopped short of calling the movie "epic," the actor does believe it's still a "really good movie." He even hinted that it could be "really funny" as well.

When asked by the Toronto Sun if it felt as if he were part of something epic with Solo: A Star Wars Story, Harrelson replied: "Epic? I can’t think of it in those terms, but I do think we’ve made a really good movie, and it could be a really funny movie, too. And Ron Howard is just a joy."

It's not too surprising to hear Solo: A Star Wars Story could have humor infused in it, though I doubt we'll see the sort of slapstick humor of, say, Thor: Ragnarok. Even in the original trilogy, Han Solo had a sort of brazen humor to him. But can Alden Ehrenreich deliver those same quick-witted one-liners and quips in the same charming manner as Harrison Ford? It's no easy task, that's for sure.

We'll find out next year when Solo: A Star Wars Story blasts into theaters on May 25, 2018, or possibly even before that when the first trailers arrive.
