Following on from the Predator article, we bring you another cast picture, but this time from the untitled Han Solo prequel, and we can also tell you that principal photography on the film has just begun at Pinewood Studios. Alden Ehrenreich is playing the iconic role of Han Solo, Donald Glover will be Lando Calrissian, and Joonas Suotamo will be Chewbacca after having filled in for Peter Meyhaw for much of The Force Awakens. Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are also in it, and Phil Lord and Christopher Miller of 22 Jump Street and The LEGO Movie are directing from a screenplay by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.
We know little about the plot except that it will explore the adventures of Han Solo and Chewbacca before the events of A New Hope, and that it will be out May 25, 2018.
I was initially very unsure about all this spin-off malarky, but since Rogue One – a film I preferred immeasurably to The Force Awakens – came out I’m now looking forward to these solo and spin-off features far more than the rest of the new trilogy!
