Emilia Clarke joins the Han Solo Stand-Alone Star Wars Film


Emilia Clarke is moving from dragon back to a galaxy far, far away to meet Han and Chewie in the as-yet untitled Han Solo Stand-Alone film that’s part of the “Star Wars Stories” movies.

Clarke, known for her stirring portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen, Dragon Queen, 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.

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

Should Disney and Lucasfilm consider any other characters for a stand-alone film? I know Ewan McGregor has said he’d be up for an Obi-Wan Kenobi film. Who else do you think would work?
