First look at Han Solo Star Wars standalone cast

Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm have just released our first look at the cast for the Han Solo Star Wars standalone movie.

You can find a larger version right here.

Key to the image is our first proper look at how Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) will appear as Han himself, and there is certainly something of the smuggler about him. Also shown here are Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games), British actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge – who is set to play a digitally created character – Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones), Joonas Suotamoas (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Chewbacca, Donald Glover (The Martian) as Lando and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie). The one person from the announced cast not shown is Thandie Newton (The Pursuit Of Happyness).

"Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous," Lord and Miller say in a statement. "We can't think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky."

The cameras have officially began rolling at Pinewood Studios and the script comes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) co-writer and Star Wars stalwart Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon. The film is powering up for a release on 25 May next year.
