The Han Solo anthology film, directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, started shooting recently. We don’t know anything about the plot really, but we do have some of the cast. Alden Ehrenreich is playing a young Han Solo, Donald Glover plays Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson plays Han’s mentor, and Emilia Clarke is in an unknown role.
Variety reports that Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge is in talks have a key CGI role in the film. We don’t know who she will be playing, but the report says that her character will be CGI driven and it will be part of the large ensemble on par with Chewbaca and C3PO.
Waller-Bridge is known for her breakout role in the Amazon series Fleabag. It got two Critics Choice Awards nominations for Best Actress in a Comedy Series and Best Comedy Series.
I wonder what the role is, I’ve been getting into Star Wars canon and I can’t think of a character that this could be. I do hope that the character doesn’t stand out like certain characters in The Force Awakens.
I haven’t seen Fleabag, but I have heard good things about it. Waller-Bridge is supposedly good in the show. So, the. Sat keeps growing for this film and I am getting more excited.
