TMZ has released new set photos from the untitled Han Solo anthology film that show stars Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca) and Woody Harrelson (Beckett) interacting in a scene, along with a mystery actress who the site speculates could be Emilia Clarke. The photo was reportedly taken before the departure of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who were let go from the project over creative differences with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
The film centers on Ehrenreich's young Han Solo and his adventures with Chewbacca prior to the start of the original Star Wars.
As for the identity of Harrelson's character in the film, we have little information to go on. “I play a guy named Beckett who’s kind of a criminal and a mentor to Han,” Harrelson said in an interview with The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon a few months back. “That’s all I can say!”
Take a look at a preview of the photos in the embedded tweet below, and follow the link for more pics.

Yesterday, Ron Howard indicated post-production work has begun on the film. He wrote a post to Twitter that included a photo featuring a Star Wars-themed Starbucks parody mug that read “May the froth be with you.”
Late last month, it was reported by Star Wars News Net that Disney was pleased with a sizzle reel that was shown from the film. “A month ago a Han Solo sizzle reel was shown to Disney licensees and we hear people were very impressed with it. That’s a fact,” the outlet wrote on Twitter. “They were especially impressed with [Donald] Glover [as Lando Calrissian] and Ehrenreich, That’s why we think Alden will do just fine as young Han.”
Based off a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the Han Solo film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams and Woody Harrelson. The as-yet-untitled Star Wars anthology film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
