Harrelson will join Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Gover, and Emilia Clarke in the new movie. While his role and character’s name hasn’t been announced, Episode XIX of the Dune Sea Diner podcast throws some heavy speculation at it.
Producers have said that this second stand-alone Star Wars Story takes place during the younger days of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian before the events of “A New Hope.”
The movie is scheduled to be released on May 25, 2018 and is being directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. You can read the full press release here.
