    Yesterday we learned that Michael K. Williams would be cut from the upcoming Han Solo film, and now it appears the actor has revealed a couple of bits from the project he has since departed.






    <p data-reactid='261']In speaking with Vanity FairWilliams touched on his entry into the Star Wars galaxy, and ultimately his exit. As most actors of all fame and fortune, he was still star struck by a seven foot walking carpet:</p>

    <p data-reactid='262'][​IMG]</p>

    <p data-reactid='262']The article proceeds to skim over a brief quote that to the average reader doesn't really mean much at all, but not to a die-hard Star Wars fan, as it would appear we have a name for Emilia Clarke's character:</p>

    <p data-reactid='263']Some of you may recall that 'Kira' was a working title name used for Rey in The Force Awakens. But before you start calling Khaleesi Rey's Mom, remember Lucasfilm is known for borrowing names/working titles/and concepts and placing them elsewhere in projects.</p>

    <p data-reactid='263']Williams goes on to confirm that his character is being cut from the film, solely due to scheduling conflicts that have since stemmed from the replacement of Lord and Miller, as his scenes had been completed before the change in hierarchy.</p>

    <div>In regards to who his character was, it sounds like someone of significance, and not just some side character, which makes the cut harder to fathom, and leads us to speculate that this movie may be going through way more drastic plot/story changes under Ron Howard than we anticipated.</div>
    <p data-reactid='266']It sounds like Williams' character might be in line with Clarke's 'Kira', as there was a photo leaked to TMZ showing Clarke in attire similar to the description Williams gives of his character's wardrobe: Regal, white, kimono. Perhaps dignitaries from a specific place where similar attire to one another? We've seen thematic wardrobes before in Star Wars and other fantasy films.</p>


    So what do you make of Williams' character's description? It certainly sounds like he was a bit more than a small role, and by his attire he may very well have a close tie to Emilia Clarke's character, which we'll call Kira until confirmed otherwise.



    Perhaps the Han Solo film is undergoing more content changes than we initially anticipated. How far off the path did Lord and Miller go? Is Ron Howard bringing the film back to Larry Kasdan's script or are the two working to reshape this thing?
