Alden Ehrenreich

Star Wars: Alden Ehrenreich (above) has been confirmed to star as young Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars spin-off adventure. Now an unconfirmed rumor claims that Ehrenreich has been signed to a three-picture deal, opening up possibilities for further adventures if the first movie is successful. Of course, it's not unusual nowadays for stars to have multiple-picture deals for prospective franchise entries, but we'll wait to see what happens. The untitled Han Solo movie is set for release on May 25, 2018. [NY Daily News]



Moana: We've known for a while that Dwayne Johnson is voicing a lead role in Disney's Moana, opposite young newcomer Auli'i Cravolho as the titular character. Now members of the supporting voice cast have been revealed, including Jemaine Clement as a lobster named Tamatoa (above), Rachel House as Moana's grandmother, Alan Tudyk as a rooster named Heihei, and Temuera Morrison and Nicole Scherzinger as Moana's parents Tui and Sina. The movie will open in theaters on November 23. [THR]
