The British Film Institute has posted a new video showing Lucasfilm’s trainee program with the BFI that includes a few pieces of new behind-the-scenes footage from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as the still-in-production untitled Han Solo movie.
The untitled Han Solo film is set to feature Hail, Caesar‘s Alden Ehrenreich as Han, with Atlanta‘s Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and The Force Awakens‘ Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Woody Harrelson is attached to play Han’s mentor, a man by the name of Beckett, while Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, Westworld‘s Thandie Newton, The Wire‘s Michael K. Williams and Fleabag‘s Phoebe Waller-Bridge are set for undisclosed roles. Han Solo can keep its previously-announced May 25, 2018 release date.
