All Star Wars fans around the globe, rejoice! As the shooting of the still untitled Han Solo Star Wars story started, some fresh info regarding the plot and the cast also emerged.
“The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian,” the official statement reads.
The Han Solo movie is being directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, while the star-studded cast includes: Alden Ehrenreich (as Han Solo), Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover (as Lando Calrissian), Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Joonas Suotamo (as Chewbacca).
The cast is pretty impressive, so we know the movie should be the real deal.
Last year, Ehrenreich talked about him getting the coveted role of Han Solo:
“I had an audition process that went on for a long time, and I got to spend a lot of time with the guys who are directing the film,” the actor said. “Getting to be around them and being around the world a little bit has been the main experience so far. I did my audition on the Millennium Falcon for one of my screen tests, which was pretty cool.”
The movie is set to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
