Along with the release of the trailer, Lucasfilm released a few hi-res images from Solo: A Star Wars Story. The credit information that goes along with those photos revealed the official names for characters played by Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
It appears that Thandie Newton’s character is Val, though nothing much is known about her at this point. After first seeing her in the trailer, I was sure she was Sana Starros from Marvel’s Star Wars comic book series, but apparently that isn’t the case. Phoebe Waller-Bridge will be playing the droid L3-37. The character appears to be part of Han and Lando’s inner group, as the character is seen aboard the Millennium Falcon.
Check out the hi-res images below!
