There's a lot of excitement building up for the upcoming standalone Han Solo film. We've heard one of its stars Woody Harrelson say that it's going to be the best Star Wars film ever. Now, another cast member has praised the film, and it's one of the many new faces we'll see joining the galaxy far, far away in next year's untitled Han Solo film, Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The British actress is best known for her role in the Amazon series Fleabag. Details about her Star Wars role have been kept under wraps, but it's reportedly a motion capture role along the lines of Supreme Leader Snoke and Maz Kanata in The Force Awakens. Waller-Bridge briefly talked about her experience shooting the Han Solo film during the RTS 2017 Awards (where Fleabag won two awards.)
The actress called the experience "Really fun – the most fun thing ever in the world! It's so fun I can't even bear it."
Waller-Bridge also talked about the challenges that come with working on such a secretive project, saying, "Yeah, it's really hard. Especially after a day of it and I just come home and go ‘argh!'. I can't even do anything!"
Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Woody Harrelson (True Detective), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Thandie Newton (Westworld), and Michael K. Williams (The Wire).
Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, comes out on May 25, 2018.
