    A few days ago Iron Man and The Jungle Book director John Favreau tweeted a picture with him standing with Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard and writer Lawrence Kasdan. Many people were wondering what this was all about, and now Howard himself revealed the reason!







    First here's Favreau's tweet from 10 days ago:








    And here's Howards new message, announcing that Favreau will be voicing an important alien character in Solo:








    Howard was asked by a fan if he has a cameo in Solo, and he was clear that unlike his brother Clint, he will not appear in his own movie:






    As you know, right now Favreau is busy directing another Disney movie - The Lion King, and in the past many fans speculated that he would be a good fit for a Star Wars stand alone movie. With so many new Star Wars projects coming in the following years do you think Favreau should get a chance to direct one of them?

    Maybe it's the outfit?

    Not quite sure.

    Saw LK.. and instantly thought of Sidious.

    Either way, great picture!

    I hope it's the 4 armed alien from the trailer. It would be nice to see an alien as a mayor character, especially on with such an interesting silhouette.

    There's two possibilities how I guessed the character correctly:

    a) Seeing only one humanoid CG alien in the trailer I concluded that this character is the only one capable of producing the facial movements required for delivering extensive dialogue in Galactic Basic.
    b) I'm Jon Favreau





    Hint: It's b. I'm indeed Jon Favreau. You're welcome :p

    Btw I, totally authentic and legit Jon Favreau also think that I might have a pretty cool action sequence durign the movie. It will look something like this.

    Hey I'm the guy that though that the alien was going to be voice by Paul Bethany when it was announced he was going to part of the film due to Michael K Williams being unavailable for the re shoots

    Once again ignorance is bliss. I had no idea about all of this which apparently saved me from overthinking :)
