Emilia Clarke Traveling to a Galaxy Far, Far Away for the Han Solo Movie


Emilia Clarke, whom most of us know as Khaleesi, has been dipping a toe into film lately, probably preparing for Game of Thrones’ eventual end. She had a starring role as Sarah Connor in Terminator: Genisys over the summer, which wasn’t… super, but it looks like she’s digging the franchise thing. Tonight, the official Star Wars Twitter account announced that she’s heading to a galaxy a fur piece from our own to meet up with Han Solo and his furry Wookiee buddy.

That’s right, our favorite Mother of Dragons is about to join the Star Wars family! No word yet on who she’ll be, but fingers crossed they let her show off her hardcore Breaker of Chains toughness rather than relegate her to a love interest or a one-off character. I don’t think our Khaleesi would settle for that.

Clarke joins Alden Ehrenreich, who’ll be playing young Han, and Donald Glover, who, because the Force is with us, will be Lando Calrissian. The movie is still untitled, and we probably won’t hear any news on that front anytime soon, but it is still currently casting an unspecified non-white female lead. Tessa Thompson, Naomi Scott, and Zoe Kravitz have visited the casting offices to test for the mysterious part, which many think is Han’s future wife (no, not Leia) Sana Starros, who is introduced in Marvel’s Star Wars comics. This still doesn’t give us any clues as to who Clarke is playing, but hopefully more news on that front will come soon.

The untitled Han Solo movie is scheduled to hit theaters May 25, 2018.
