Disney has now revealed the first cast photo for the standalone Han Solo movie.

This will be the second standalone Star Wars film following last year's Rogue One. This movie will follow a young Han Solo and filming for the movie has commenced.

This photo gives our first look at Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo. He's the guy in the middle of the photo.

On the far right is Donald Glover who will play the part of Lando Calrissian. These two are the main characters of the film along with Chewbacca now being played by Joonas Suotamo.

A synopsis of the film has yet to be revealed although it will center around Han Solo and Chewbacca several years before we first saw them in A New Hope. It is expected to explain to us how Han Solo got the Millennium Falcon off of Lando in the first place.

If you have been following Star Wars, the ship now has a lot of owners over the course of its history. Now Rey and Chewbacca have it during the conclusion of The Force Awakens.

Anyway, the first cast photo also shows us lots of other actors/actresses appearing in the movie.

Other cast members include Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Sadly, their character names remain a mystery so we won't know who they are until closer to the movie's release date.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) will be directing the film so we can expect to hear a lot of quips and humor. The script has been written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.

Lawrence Kasdan may be familiar to some people as he helped write The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The Han Solo standalone movie will be released in North American cinemas on May 25, 2018.
