Disney and Lucasfilm’s Han Solo film doesn’t have a title, but it does have an official cast photo. The first photo from the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story features Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) joined the cast for the official photo from the bridge of the Millennium Falcon.
Filming on the untitled Han Solo movie began on February 20, 2017 at Pinewood Studios in London. According to Disney’s very short description, the action adventure film will explore Han and Chewbacca’s “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.”
“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,” stated Lord and Miller. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”
Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan wrote the script and Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel are producing. Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin are executive producing. The behind the scenes crew includes Bradford Young (Director of Photography), Chris Dickens (Editor), Dominic Tuohy (SFX Supervisor), Rob Bredow (VFX Supervisor), Brad Allan (Action Designer), Neal Scanlan (Creature & Droid FX Creative Supervisor), Neil Lamont (Production Designer), Dave Crossman and Glyn Dillon (Co-Costume Designers), Jamie Wilkinson (Prop Master), Lisa Tomblin (Hair), Amanda Knight (Make-Up) and Nina Gold (UK Casting Director).
Disney’s targeting a May 25, 2018 theatrical release.
