Emilia Clarke joins HAN SOLO spin-off

Emilia Clarke is heading to a galaxy far, far away — and she’s going to meet Han and Chewie.

StarWars.com announced today that Clarke, known for her portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, will join the upcoming untitled Han Solo Star Wars movie. Clarke’s role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures.

Clarke joins Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover — previously cast as Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, respectively — in the highly-anticipated film, which is set prior to the original Star Wars trilogy.

Clarke isn’t the first Thrones alum to be cast in a Star Wars film: both Gwendoline Christie and Max von Sydow appeared in The Force Awakens last year.

The untitled Han Solo movie, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, is set for release in 2018.
