Han Solo and Chewbacca are making new friends as photos from the set of the Han Solo standalone Star Wars movie shows Woody Harrelson with the two iconic characters.
Or perhaps it's actually an old friend since the Han Solo movie is a prequel to the original trilogy. Harrelson is playing Beckett, the scoundrel who mentored Han Solo, who is played by Alden Ehrenreich in the new movie. The photos can be seen over at TMZ.
The scene in the photos looks like it's being shot on the set of a space station. Beckett, Han, and Chewie also meet with a female character, though it is unclear in the photo if this is Emilia Clarke's character.
The photos are said to have been taken while Phil Lord and Chris Miller were still directing the film and before they departed over creative differences and were replaced by Ron Howard.
