Following the rumours earlier this month, StarWars.com has officially announced that Woody Harrelson has joined the young “Han Solo” film in an unspecified role.
Earlier rumours indicate that Harrelson will be playing a mentor to the young Han (Alden Ehrenreich).
Harrelson joins the already announced Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, and Emilia Clarke as an as-of-yet-unnamed female lead.
Filming of the Han Solo film begins in London shortly under the direction of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The film is expected to release in May 2018.
