The official site has posted the first cast photo of the Han Solo spinoff. On the picture we can see the two directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller along with Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca in the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon. The post also confirms Thandie Newton has been cast in the movie (though she’s not featured in the cast photo). It’s an exciting way to start principal photography!
The site describes Han Solo spinoff as a movie that “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 post also confirmed the release date for May 25, 2018 meaning Star Wars movies will go back to being released in May like before!
