A “Star Wars” fan sent Twitter into hyperdrive Wednesday when he posted what he said was a photo of two Han Solos at lunch: two men who appeared to be Harrison Ford and Alden Ehrenreich, sitting together in a nice restaurant.
Nico Sotomayor posted the image without explaining how he got it. “Two Han Solos grabbing lunch,” he tweeted, with an image of glasses clinking. He later said it was taken in Santa Monica, but did not reply to our request to ask him a lot of follow-up questions.
Representatives for the actors and Disney did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
People with Han’s trust-no-one disposition will note that while the fellow on the right looks a lot like Ehrenreich, and the one on the left looks like Ford, the older man’s face is quite blurred. If you spotted two Han Solos together, wouldn’t you take more than one picture?
Also, if you’re wondering who drew first when the bill came, it would appear to be the one with the blurry face — the one who at least resembles Ford. If you look closely, he looks to have the bill and a pen next to him.
Ford played Han Solo in the original “Star Wars” movies and 2015’s “The Force Awakens.” Ehrenreich was recently cast as the young Han Solo in a “Star Wars” spin-off.

As TheWrap has reported, Ehrenreich has long looked forward to meeting Ford.
“I haven’t asked yet but I’m hopeful it will happen,” Ehrenreich said, adding that “his spirit has been pervasive” in conversations about the upcoming film.
“Star Wars” fans can only imagine what the two actors would have spoken about: How to get Wookie hair out of your jackets? How Ehrenreich will do the Kessel run? Who Woody Harrelson might play in the Solo movie?
