Wanna see Emilia Clarke on the big screen? Look no further as the Mother of Dragons will be starring alongside “Hail Ceaser!” actor Alden Ehrenreich in the 2nd “Star Wars Story”, which is also a standalone Han Solo movie.
Though the actress’ character has yet to be revealed, it was reported that her role will “will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures”.
In an official announcement, StarWars.com wrote, “Emilia Clarke is heading to a galaxy far, far away — and she’s going to meet Han and Chewie (…) Known for her stirring portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen in ‘Game of Thrones’, will join the upcoming untitled Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ movie”.
Han Solo was first made famous by Harrison Ford in 1977 and the film will focus on the origin story of Han Solo and his best friend, Chewbacca, before he met Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. The screen play for the upcoming film will be written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan.
The film also stars actor Donald Glover (of “Community” and “Atlanta” fame) as Lando Calrissian.
While the untitled Han Solo solo film (no pun intended) is slated for release in 25th May 2018, the first stand-alone spin-off film “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is slated for release on 16th December 2016.
