Jon Favreau Appears To Reveal Who He's Playing In 'Solo'

By: Dominic Jones

Earlier this week, Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard revealed that fellow director Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Elf) would be voicing a character in the upcoming Star Wars film.  Howard described the character as a "very cool & important alien character".  Today, Favreau took to Twitter to seemingly confirmed what character he's playing.  He posted a screenshot from the teaser trailer of the four-armed alien, seen briefly at the controls of a ship.

While Favreau doesn't explicitly say that this is his character, all signs point that way (especially given his choice of hashtags and the proximity of this tweet to Howard's tweet about him being in the film).

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th, 2018 and stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Qi'Ra, Woody Harrelson (True Detective) as Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) as L3-37, Thandie Newton (Westworld) as Val, and Paul Bettany (The Avengers) as Dryden Vos.  The film is directed by Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind), with a script by Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) and his son Jon Kasdan (The First Time).
