First Photo Released From Upcoming 'Star Wars' Film

Disney released the first photo of the cast for its Han Solo spinoff film on Tuesday. “Han Solo--Smuggler. Scoundrel. Hero. A new Star Wars Story begins,” the Star Wars account tweeted along with the cast photo--which features Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian), Woody Harrelson (Han Solo’s mentor), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Emilia Clarke, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. 

Variety reports that Disney also confirmed production for the film officially began on Monday at Pinewood Studios in London. 

"The movie will explore [Han Solo and Chewbacca’s] adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope,” the studio added. “Including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.”
