True Solo: Harrison Ford Digitally Replaces Alden Ehrenreich in Solo Trailer

From Nick Acosta:

Solo: A Star Wars story opens May 26th. Whenever you recast an iconic character like Han Solo there will be controversy. Watching the trailer featuring new actor Alden Ehrenreich in the titular role it’s hard to get used to. By all accounts Alden seems like great actor and good guy. But I couldn’t help wonder what would this movie would look like if you could magically transport a young Harrison Ford to play his iconic character. So using a variety of digital compositing software and some editing tricks I tried to make that happen.

‘True Solo’ utilizes clips of Harrison Ford before he acted in the original Star Wars. I farmed movies, tv episodes and even still photographs that I graphed onto Alden Ehrenreich’s Face and animated. Notable clips are from his early roles in American Graffiti, The Conversation, and a very bizarre appearance on the 60’s sitcom “Love American Style.”
