Solo where filmed
Posted by
The Star Wars universe is expanding to the original world of mythical galactic badass Han Solo. We'll get to know first hand the events that made him walk on the rebel side of the force, on how he won the Millennium Falcon in a card game and all the legend behind Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian.

The free-spirit smuggler who immortalized Harrison Ford is played by young actor Alden Ehrenreich. His partner in crime is Mother Of Dragons Emilia Clarke. Lando Calrissian is played by Donald Glover, also known as musician Childish Gambino. Woody Harrelson (Natural Born Killers, The Hunger Games) plays Tobias, Han's mentor.

Solo: A Star Wars Story was filmed in UK, Italy and Spain. These are the spoiler-free filming locations for this second Star Wars spin-off film after Rogue One:
