We already know that Alden Ehrenreich is the actor chosen to play young Han Solo in the Star Wars spinoff movie set to premiere on May 25, 2018. But casting isn’t anywhere near finished but that soon might change.
According to Variety, Tessa Thompson (Selma and Creed), Naomi Scott (Power Rangers), and Zoe Kravitz have all tested for the female lead in the upcoming movie. It’s not clear at this time who the mystery female character is, but directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have been meeting talent for the part. Additionally, they conducted a second run of tests for the part of young Lando Calrissian. Rumors say that Donald Glover might get the part, but a second round of tests is apparently still needed.
Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller – best known for The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street – are reportedly taking their time with the casting as production doesn’t start until 2017.
