Emilia Clarke, who you probably recognize as the dragon-taming queen Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones, has joined the young Han Solo standalone film, according to the official Star Wars website. The announcement does not make clear what role Clarke will be playing. However, she joins recent addition Donald Glover, who is set to play a young Lando Calrissian, and Alden Ehrenreich, who will be assuming the role of Han Solo years before his portrayal by Harrison Ford in the original trilogy.

The film does not yet have a name. However, it’s got a director duo, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who both helmed huge successes like The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street. The film is set for a 2018 release. As for details about Clarke’s involvement, the press release says only that “she’s going to meet Han and Chewie.”
