Oh my gosh, the cast of this Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ spin-off is shaping up to be totally mind blowing! On Nov. 18 we learned that gorgeous ‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke is officially signed on for the epic film. We have all the details, right here!
We’re so here for this! Emilia Clarke, 30, has officially joined the cast of the upcoming Han Solo movie set to be released in 2018. StarWars.com announced on Nov. 18 that “Emilia Clarke is heading to a galaxy far, far away — and she’s going to meet Han and Chewie.” Oh my gosh, yes!
Though there’s no word on what character Emilia will actually play, they say her “role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures.” So cool! Emilia is an amazing actress who rose to fame portraying Daenerys Targaryen in the hit show Game of Thrones. We know she’s got amazing acting chops, can play one bad-ass woman, and knows her way around fantasy. She’s going to absolutely kill it!
The cast was already shaping up to be insanely good before Emilia even signed on. On May 6 it was announced that handsome 26-year old Hail, Caesar! actor Alden Ehrenreich will play the younger version of Han Solo, which already got us excited about the project. Then, directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller took it to the next level by announcing that amazing rapper/actor/comedian Donald Glover would play Lando Calrissian! We can’t wait to see where Emilia fits into the film, because we’re sure it’s going to be amazing no matter what she plays!
