What to expect in the Han Solo movie
Though most Star Wars fans are understandably focusing their attention on the upcoming eighth chapter in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the franchise also has another spinoff winding its way through development, and we're already wondering what we can expect to see in that project.
We're talking, of course, about the untitled "young Han Solo" standalone movie. Lucasfilm has been tightlipped on the details, though we know a few things; for starters, it'll be co-directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Alden Ehrenreich will play young Han Solo, Donald Glover portrays young Lando Calrissian, and Woody Harrelson will play Solo's mentor. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) has also joined the project, though we don't know who she's playing at this point. Chewbacca will also be there, of course.
Aside from that, we don't know much else, so we put together a breakdown of some of the characters that could pop up in this prequel, mining the new and old canon for some friendly (and not so friendly) faces that could potentially pop up. Here's what you can safely expect to see in the Han Solo movie.
