Ron Howard Confirms Emilia Clarke Wrapped On 'Han Solo'

Filming might be close to wrapping up on the Han Solo movie with yet another principal actor being finished on the production.

Ron Howard posted a photo on social media where he confirmed that Emilia Clarke is done working on the film. Check out the photo below.

The official announcement comes a few days after Clarke posted her own photo where she dyed her hair blonde, similar to her Game of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen. Her caption indicated that she was getting ready to film scenes for the final season of the hit HBO series, causing speculation that her work on the untitled Han Solo spinoff was completed.

The photo is likely from a few days ago, considering it shows Clarke with her natural brown hair color.

She is playing a new character in the Star Wars spinoff who is rumored to go by the name of Kura. The name is somewhat similar to Kira, which was the original name for Rey in the script for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Both Episode VII and the Han Solo movie were written by Lawrence Kasdan.

Clarke is the second major actor to wrap their work on the film after Donald Glover completed filming in August.

It's not clear how much more filming is taking place on the film. Howard took over the production after original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired in June. Shooting resumed in early July with three and half weeks left of principal photography, as well as five weeks of planned reshoots. After the entirety of July and August and filming continuing into late September, it sounds the production is running long.

But that is to be expected considering all of the turmoil surrounding the production. Howard was said to be responsible for putting the film back on track with Kasdan's script after Lord and Miller made significant changes while shooting.

Hopefully we get to see the first trailer soon, and maybe learn what the actual movie will be called.

The untitled Han Solo movie is scheduled to hit theaters May 25, 2018.
