Harrison Ford Has Lunch With Young Han Solo Alden Ehrenreich -- See the Pic!

Han Solo is now a duo.
Star Wars actor Harrison Ford -- who starred as the infamous smuggler and “scruffy-looking nerf herder” in George Lucas’ original trilogy and reprised his role in 2015’s Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens -- was spotted out to lunch with Alden Ehrenreich, the actor who will play the role in an upcoming standalone prequel film.
“Two Han Solos grabbing lunch,” a fan captioned the Twitter pic posted Wednesday of the two actors in conversation at a restaurant.
The upcoming film -- the second standalone Star Wars prequel following the recently-released Rogue One: A Star Wars Story -- will focus on Han’s early days as a smuggler before joining up with the rebellion. Ehrenreich recently spoke to ET’s Ashley Crossan about his excitement to take on the role, admitting at the time that he still hadn’t met Ford.
The 26-year-old Beautiful Creatures star also opened up about how excited he was to work with Donald Glover, who has been cast as young Lando Calrissian, a role originated by Billy Dee Williams in the original trilogy.
"He's such an interesting guy and a wonderful actor," Ehrenreich marveled. "He's just going to do something with that role that I think is going to be really exciting for everybody."
