But the secrecy is on another level. What I can say he’s a good character, he is a mentor to Han and a criminal, but good at heart,” said Harrelson to Evening Standard.
Donald Glover and Joonas Suotamo will play Han Solo’s buddies Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca respectively. Other cast members include Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Ian Kenny and Michael K. Williams.
