Disney and Lucasfilm have released the first photo from the upcoming Han Solo spin-off film ahead of its production which is about to get underway.
Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller can be seen alongside cast members Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian) and Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Lord and Miller say in a joint statement: “Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous. We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”
The film deals with Han Solo and Chewbacca’s adventures years before the events of “Star Wars: A New Hope” including their early encounters with Lando Calrissian. The film is currently targeting a May 2018 release.
