Khaleesi in spaaaaace! StarWars.com just announced some pretty amazing casting for the upcoming Han Solo stand-alone film! Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is joining the next Star Wars anthology film. She’ll join Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian in the new film, though we don’t know what role she’ll play. Oh, please make her a Jedi! Dragons and a lightsaber? I mean, she probably won’t be, as Han doesn’t believe that hokey religions and ancient weapons are any match for a good blaster at your side. Still, a girl can dream.

In addition to the super geektastic casting (and if you’re not familiar with Ehrenreich, please go watch Hail, Caesar! right now, won’t you?), we have the amazing Phil Lord and Christopher Miller as directors. You remember The LEGO Movie? Yeah, I may have been skeptical at first about this idea, but that skepticism is long gone.

Okay, I’m dying to hear what role you guys think she’s going to play. What do you want to see in this film? Tweet us @LegionofLeia or me @JennaBusch and let me know your thoughts. The Han Solo film is set for release in 2018. Star Wars is coming!
