Oh, to be a fly droid on the wall during that conversation. We'll probably never know the exact details of what was said, but it's encouraging to see Ehrenreich no doubt getting pointers from the man who defined the character he's about to play. But I wonder, when the meal came to a close, who paid first?

Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover and Emilia Clarke, the as-yet-untitled Young Han Solo spin off is scheduled to be released in 2018.
