'Han Solo' Movie Recruits Amazon Star Phoebe Waller-Bridge For Key Role

However, that role won't actually use Waller-Bridge's physical self-it's apparently a "CGI-driven performance", but nonetheless a character who is a main part of the primary cast, in the vein of K-2SO in Rogue One. She would follow that series up with her Amazon series "Fleabag", which she created and stars in. Her performances in the Amazon Original show has gained her acclaim from both sides of the pond, as well as being nominated for a Critics' Choice Award. The fact that she would be playing an unexpected new character, and would have to undergo a complete transformation for the part, is even more exciting. The latter will be embodied by Donald Glover in the spinoff of Han Solo, whose shooting was announced with a photo.

The movie is now filming, with Donald Glover taking over the role of Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as an as-yet-unnamed mentor character, and Emilia Clarke as an unspecified character. Nothing is known on Lobot, but all these characters have usually been played by actors who haven't been CGI's so the guessing game is on for Phoebe.

We might be able to add another name to the growing cast of the Han Solo Star Wars spin off film. Woody Harrelson is taking on Han's criminal mentor while Emilia Clarke gets to be a love interest.

Mlenga Mvula , a judicial spokesman, said: 'I can confirm that Madonna has been granted an adoption order for two children'. And an Instagram photo from July has since resurfaced, showing the little girls with Madonna's 20-year-old daughter Lourdes.

There's still plenty of time to speculate how Phoebe's role will fit in - Cameras may have started rolling last month, but the film won't be opening in theaters until May 25, 2018.

This installment of the franchise gives us a look at Han Solo's back story where he grows from a young punk to the smuggler you can't resist.
