Today, it’s been announced that Woody Harrelson has joined the cast of the upcoming Han Solo film. Due in theaters next year, the upcoming anthology film is also set to star Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover and Emilia Clarke.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody,” say the film’s directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. “His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong.”
Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm will see the release of many Star Wars films for the foreseeable future, with The Force Awakens and Rogue One proving to be a massive success so far.
