Ron Howard has announced that Jon Favreau has joined the cast of Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story, voicing "a very cool & important alien character." The news came after Favreau posted a picture of him, Howard, and Solo writer Lawrence Kasdan on Twitter.

 

This will actually be Favreau's second Star Wars role, as he voiced the Mandalorian rogue Pre Vizsla in Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. While Mandalorians' are "aliens" in Star Wars lore (everyone is, essentially), given Vizsla's human appearance and Howard saying Favreau would "voice" a character it would seem to be a seperate part. That, and Darth Maul beheaded Vizsla in the "Shades of Reason" episode, which in Star Wars' timeline took place several years before the events of Solo.

Solo: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters May 25.
