The first image of the upcoming Star Wars spin-off following the story of the young Han Solo, has been released on the official Star Wars Twitter.

The picture shows the film's star Alden Ehrenreich, surrounded by co-stars Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover, along with Wookie Chewbacca (who's suit is manned by Finnish basketball player Joonas Suotamo).

Co-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller also appear in the photo.

It was confirmed earlier this month that Donald Glover would be playing the role of Lando Calrissian (originally played by Bily Dee Williams), as well as providing the voice for Simba in Disney's live-action remake of 1994 animated classic The Lion King.

According to the official Star Wars site, the stand-alone film will explore Han and Chewie's adventures before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. The film is expected to release in May, 2018.
