    The untitled Han Solo movie, the second stand-alone in the Star Wars franchise, brings back a familiar fan favorite to a galaxy far, far away.... Read on for more details.







    On Wednesday director Ron Howard took to Twitter to announce that fan-favorite Warwick Davis, who has played multiple roles in the Star Wars universe of films, will be returning for his new Han Solo film project. Davis recently played the character Weeteef Cyubee in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story last year.



    The news of Davis’ addition to the Han Solo lineup comes just hours after it was confirmed that composer John Powell would be handling the score for the second spin-off, which is said to be set ten years prior to the events depicted in the original 1977' Star Wars film. The news was revealed when Ron Howard was asked if he was ever going to make a sequel to his fantasy his 1988 action film 'Willow' to which he answered, “I directed @WarwickADavis for the 1st time in 30 years today. It made me happy.”










    Rumors about Davis’ attachment to the film have been running rampant since the veteran actor vaguely Tweeted in May that he had, “the privilege of actually being in that galaxy far, far away at Pinewood Studios.”










    Davis was also spotted at Fuerteventura during the filming of 'Han Solo' there, but it's always good to have an official confirmation from the director himself.





    So, Howard’s tweet now confirms Davis' actual involvement in the production.

    The long time director recently took helm of the project in June due to the surprise firing of the previous directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, so it should come as no surprise that he would want to surround himself with people he's familiar with.



    As of now, it appears that Davis’ role in the film is being kept under wraps but we'll keep you updated with latest news as more details become available.



    The untitled Han Solo film hits theaters May 25, 2018.



    May the force be with you....

    Hopefully his roll is not like his roll was in the Phantam Menace. After seeing him pop up in that movie as a few different characters, I was hoping to never see him again in another Star Wars film. Unfortunately, he has appeared in every movie since. Sigh

    I'm happy for Mr. Davis. I'm looking forward to seeing what new character he will play. He has played many different characters in the films and I for one have enjoyed each one, even though I can't name those characters, I just get kicks when I recognize him in the movies.
