There’s a great news for Game of Thrones fans, especially the fans of Daenerys Targaryen. Lucas Films has just announced that Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones is going to star in an upcoming Star Wars movie about Han Solo! The news was first published on the Star Wars website and this is what they had to say:
“Emilia Clarke is heading to a galaxy far, far away — and she’s going to meet Han and Chewie.
StarWars.com is excited to announce that Clarke, known for her stirring portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, will join the upcoming untitled Han Solo Star Wars movie. Clarke’s role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures.”
Emila Clarke will work with Alden Ehrenreich who has been cast as Han Solo, Donald Glover, who will portray the role of Lando Calrissian and don’t forget Chewbacca. The movie is set for a 2018 release date and it will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. At the moment there has been no announcement regarding the role Emilia will be playing in the Star Wars movie but it’s a great news for Emilia Clarke who will now star in another popular franchise which has equally crazy fans.
For those who don’t remember, in the last Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, another Game of Thrones cast member made an appearance. Gwendoline Christie played the role of Captain Phasma. We have only one thing to say to Emilia Clarke, “May the Force be with you!”
