Emilia Clarke Joins the Han Solo Standalone Film

While the upcoming Star Wars Han Solo standalone film hasn’t yet found its female lead, it has added a woman to the cast: StarWars.com has just announced that Emilia Clarke, a.k.a. Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen, has signed on in a supporting role.

Clarke joins “scoundrels on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld” Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). The Mother of Dragons will be the Mother of… Space Dragons? We don’t know yet, only that “Clarke’s role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures.”

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the minds behind The LEGO Movie, will direct the untitled Han Solo film, which will be released sometime in 2018.
