Names For Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Characters Revealed

By: Dominic Jones

This morning's teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story featured looks at several new characters, including the ones played by Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.  Newton's character, whose name is Val, is seen briefly in the trailer wearing a winter coat and carrying a large blaster.  You would be forgiven if you didn't notice Waller-Bridge in the trailer because she is playing the droid L3-37 in a motion capture performance, as rumored, (similar to what Alan Tudyk did in Rogue One).

Thandie Newton as Val
Phoebe Waller-Bridge as L3-37
The character names were included in a Lucasfilm press release, which also confirmed that Woody Harrelson's character's name is Beckett (but, thanks to Harrelson, we've known that for a while).

If you haven't seen it yet, or simply want to watch it again, you can check out the teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story below,
