It appears as if we have our first real look at the cast of Solo: A Star Wars Story…
In what might be the surprise of the day, Solo: A Star Wars Story key art seems to have found its way online, bearing Russian lettering, and featuring Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke as Kira (unconfirmed name), and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
Here’s the art, with the Russian lettering removed, and featuring a shiny and new Millenium Falcon, shared on the Star Wars Leaks Reddit page.
As you can see, Ehrenreich looks like a young Harrison Ford in his role as Han Solo, and Donald Glover has the cool, calm and collected look of Lando Calrissian right down to the superb mustache and arched eyebrow.
Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke looks like she has an Imperial look to her, but that’s just a wild guess, and of course, Chewbacca looks the same because that beautiful giant walking carpet never ages.
Moving on, another leak posted to the same Reddit page shows us a look at what appears to be Lando’s hand playing Sabacc (or Corellian Spike, the variation of Sabacc that Han won the Falcon in).

Are we looking at Lando literally losing the Falcon in the above photo? That would be neat, but I doubt we’ll get that footage in an official capacity until the film hits theaters. Along with the aforementioned actors, Woody Harrelson will star as Beckett, a criminal, and mentor to young Han Solo, and Avengers actor Paul Bettany (Vision) in an as yet revealed role.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters in six months, May 25, 2018.
