Disney released the first of many (hopefully) cast pictures from the Han Solo Movie / Star Wars spin-off centred round the par-sec beating Solo.
“Han Solo – Smuggler. Scoundrel. Hero. A new Star Wars Story begins,” the “Star Wars” account tweeted!

The plot behind the stand alone “Star Wars” character’s own film is still a mystery. However, some light was shed on this on the Star Wars website–
“The movie will explore the duo’s(Ehrenreich and Soutamo) 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(Glover).”
Confirmed cast for the movie are- Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino(Lando Calrissian), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge and finally “Westworld” star Thandie Newton, who’s not in the photo. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller also appear, as they’re the ones usually behind the camera directing
“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,” the joint directors said in a statement. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”
Han Solo Movie and Chewie arrive on May 25, 2018.
