Emilia Clarke Will Meet Donald Glover In Space For The Han Solo Movie

She’s trading in her dragons for a Wookie and the ‘Millennium Falcon’

She may be in the middle of shooting the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, but Emilia Clarke has more to look forward to than dragons and making a play for the Iron Throne: She's just signed on to the forthcoming Han Solo origin story, so Star Wars fans, get stoked.

The film — which is slated for a 2018 release — features a cast of characters that "Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures." (Highly doubt that Clarke will be the one donning the Wookie suit, though.)

Clarke is the latest to join the untitled Han Solo project, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as young Han and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.

Congrats to Clarke, and may she kick as much ass in a galaxy far, far away as she does in her steady takeover of the Seven Kingdoms.
