Variety is reporting that Phoebe Waller-Bridge is in discussions for a role in the untitled Star Wars: Han Solo film.
The role would be a CGI-driven performance from Waller-Bridge but would still be a significant part of the ensemble, similarly to key Star Wars characters in the past like Chewbacca, C-3P0 and most recently, Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO in “Rogue One.”
I’m a big fan of Amazon’s Fleabag, which Waller-Bridge created and stars in. The show is hilarious. I know Waller-Bridge would nail it as she’s very brilliant. This is great news. I really hope it pans out.
