Han Solo movieThe Millennium Falcon is looking mighty crowded these days!

Disney and Lucasfilm released the first official image of the cast of the young Han Solo "Star Wars" standalone movie. Principal photography began at Pinewood Studios in London yesterday.

The photo includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson as Han's mentor, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (who is reportedly playing the franchise's first female droid). "Westworld" star Thandie Newton is also part of the cast, but not pictured here.

In a statement accompanying the picture, directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller said, "Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous. We can't think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky."

The Han Solo movie is set to open in theaters May 25, 2018.
