Just when you thought the still-untitled Han Solo movie might have finished locking down its leads, it goes and adds someone new. Michael K. Williams has landed a role in the latest spin-off.

If you're expecting to learn what he's playing at this juncture... Well, you've clearly never read a Star Wars casting story before. Suffice to say that information is a strictly held secret. So far, all we know is that Alden Ehrenreich is playing the young Han, with Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamoas once more playing Chewbacca (after subbing for Peter Mayhew for most of The Force Awakens). Phoebe Waller-Bridge is an unknown CG character, while Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Woody Harrelson are all in unspecified parts (though Harrelson is reportedly a mentor figure to Han).

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are calling the shots, and work is underway now at Pinewood. Seemingly breaking with the now traditional Star Wars December release pattern, the movie will land on 25 May next year.
