Check out the cast of actors and the their characters for this movie

  • Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo: 
    A cynical smuggler. When asked how Solo differs from the Solo of latter Star Wars films, Ehrenreich stated “I think the main thing that’s different is that the Han we meet in this film is more of an idealist. He has certain dreams that he follows, and we watch how it affects him as those dreams meet new realities – realities that are harder and more challenging than he’d expected.” The original Han Solo actor, Harrison Ford, met with him giving him some insight, and words of advice.
  • Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett: 
    A criminal and Han’s mentor.The character of Beckett was based on Long John Silver from Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.
  • Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra: 
    Describing her character, Clarke said: “She has a couple of guises, but essentially she is just fighting to stay alive. If you’ve got a really glamorous lady in a really sordid environment, you kind of know the glamor is hiding a few rough roads.”With regard to her character’s relationship with Solo, Clarke offered that “They grew up as comrades, essentially. They grew up as pals, as partners in crime. There is obviously the romantic side of things. But they grew up together. So they were kids together.”
  • Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian: 
    A smuggler on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld.The original Lando actor, Billy Dee Williams, met with him giving him some insight, and words of advice.
  • Thandie Newton as Val
  • Phoebe Waller-Bridge as L3-37: 
    Lando’s droid companion.
  • Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca: 
    Han’s Wookiee sidekick and bestfriend who also serves as his first mate.
  • Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos: 
    A crime lord. Michael K. Williams had originally been cast, but he was removed from the final film after being unable to return to set during the film’s reshoots. Bettany was cast in his place, with the character being reworked from a motion-capture alien (described by Williams as half-mountain lion, half-human) to a scarred human.

Jon Favreau will provide the voice for Rio Durant, “a very cool and important alien character.” Screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan and first assistant director Toby Hefferman portray Tag Greenley and Bink Otauna, respectively, two characters that first appeared in the Star Wars comics published by Dark Horse Comics. Ian Kenny, Warwick Davis and Clint Howard are also cast in undisclosed roles.
