I recently came across this photo being billed as actors in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story. Most of the actors are unrecognizable to me.

Can the actors and, if possible, their characters, be identified?

    I'm reasonably sure the big hairy one was in the original trilogy. – Valorum Feb 21 '17 at 21:32

    The top right one plays the character Chewbacca, but I don't recognise the actor. – SQB Feb 21 '17 at 21:34
  • I thought my answer to this one was pretty comprehensive, at least with the current info available. Is there anything else you wanted before considering an acceptance? – Valorum Feb 25 '17 at 1:14
  • @buzz - If you're going to make minor (and pretty worthless) edits, at least get them right. – Valorum Jun 10 '18 at 1:22

Per Starwars.com

Clockwise from bottom left: co-director Christopher Miller, Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, co-director Phil Lord, and Donald Glover.

HAN SOLO – SMUGGLER. SCOUNDREL. HERO. A NEW STAR WARS STORY BEGINS

enter image description here

Alden Ehrenreich plays Han Solo. Joonas Suotamo is Chewbacca. Woody Harrelson is Han's mentor Beckett. Donald Glover will be Lando Calrissian. Emilia Clarke plays the part of Qi'ra, Han's love interest and Phoebe Waller-Bridge plays a (heavily CGI) droid character named L3-37

  • @KodosJohnson - I was hoping the role would go to Jacob Anderson from GoT. He's got acting talent and range, something Glover is lacking. – Valorum Feb 22 '17 at 0:10
  • I guess. I was purely thinking of physical appearance. – Kodos Johnson Feb 22 '17 at 0:12

    @KodosJohnson - Hmm. I still think I'd prefer the better actor, even if he wasn't a strong facial match. Add in the moustache and a wig and you're 90% of the way there anyway. – Valorum Feb 22 '17 at 0:15

    @MrLister - Including Emilia Clarke? – Valorum Feb 22 '17 at 10:42

    Emilia Clarke doesn't even look much like Emilia Clarke here. I did a triple-take when I saw this image in the news the other day and first read the caption. – Lightness Races in Orbit Feb 22 '17 at 12:06
