"He's such an interesting guy and a wonderful actor," the 26-year-old actor added. "He's just going to do something with that role that I think is going to be really exciting for everybody."

Both Glover and Ehrenreich have big shoes to fill, stepping into the roles made famous by Billy Dee Williams and Harrison Ford, respectively. Ehrenreich admitted he hasn't had the chance to get advice from the original Han Solo himself.

"I haven't," Ehrenreich shared, when asked whether he's met Ford.

Meanwhile, Glover discussed playing Lando on the Ellen DeGeneres Show last month, and shared his mom's sage advice: Don't screw it up!

"I'm very honored," Glover said. "[Lando] was the very first [Star Wars] toy I ever had ... I told my dad [about getting cast] immediately, and my mom was in the background going, 'Don't mess it up!'"

Our excitement stretches from here to a galaxy far, far away!
