'Solo' movie's release is just around the corner, and actor Alden Ehrenreich who is bringing the titular Han Solo to life, can finally ease his grip on the spoilers. Well, we don't know if he can contractually do that, but he definitely seems to have let out a secret about the Han Solo film – or should we say, the Han Solo trilogy? 

During an Esquire interview, Alden revealed that he has signed a three-film deal with Lucasfilms. While discussing the fact that when you sign on for a role like Han Solo, you are offering a lot more commitment that just one film, Alden said that even Harrison Ford, the original Han Solo could not quit after just one.  

When asked just exactly how many films he has signed on for, Alden said, “Three," before adding, "I don’t know if that’s officially, uh, public. But—yeah.” While, it is exciting for us fans to know there are two more 'Solo' movies in the making, this is far from the worst spoiler Alden could have revealed.

Alden also spoke about the rumors that suggested that he had reservations about the film's original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who were ultimately replaced by Ron Howard. The actor clarified that he, in fact, had no say in the firing, comparing his ignorance of the matter to being seated at the kids' table at the family dinner.  

“On a personal level, it felt emotional, for them to be going after we’d set out on that course together,” the 'Solo' actor elaborated.

“Because I spent a lot of time with them, and we had a really good relationship—they also cast me. But I think at that point, they were kind of on board with [the decision], too. Like, ‘This is what’s happening.’ That’s not what they said to me, but that was the vibe I got.”
