Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke joins Star Wars spin-off



Emilia Clarke, best known for her role as Daenerys, the Mother of Dragons, in Game of Thrones, joins the cast of the untitled Han Solo Star Wars spin-off movie directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The LEGO Movie).

Clarke stars alongside Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover, who play Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, respectively. Rumours suggest she'll be Han Solo's wife before the smuggler met Princess Leia aboard the Death Star.

Like Rogue One, which is released this December, the next Star Wars spin-off will be set prior to events in A New Hope.

The Han Solo movie begins shooting in January and is slated for release in May 2018.
