And while we're still reeling from Han Solo's fate in — is a year too soon still to mention it? — we know we'll get a young Solo movie starring Alden Ehrenreich pretty soon. In the meantime, however, you can watch this impressive fan film on YouTube. Trust us, this is not your average fan-made montage.

Watch: 'Han Solo: A Smuggler's Trade'
