Leaked photos from the upcoming Star Wars flick about Han Solo show one of the franchise's most iconic characters is set to feature in the film.
Pictures from the set of the movie show Woody Harrelson's character, Beckett, standing with Han Solo - played by Alden Ehrenreich - and everyone's favorite wookie, Chewbacca.
In one shot, the trio is seen on what appears to be an elevator of some sort, while a second shows Harrelson and Ehrenreich standing with a female character, believed to be Games of Thrones star Emilia Clarke.
Speaking to the Tonight Show earlier this year, Harrelson revealed the name of his character, adding he is: 'kind of a criminal and a mentor to Han'.

'That's all I can say,' the 55-year-old veteran actor said.
The photos were the latest to leak from the set, which has been rocked by drama in recent months.
Director Ron Howard stepped in to take over at the helm of the film late last month, after filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller left due to 'creative differences'.
Lucasfilm's president, Kathleen Kennedy, announced the hiring, saying: 'At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago.'

The director switch came after industry publications reported Lord and Miller had clashed with Kennedy and veteran Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan over the comedic direction of the film.
The untitled Han Solo movie will follow the origin story of young Han Solo, the handsome, roguish space smuggler made famous by actor Harrison Ford. It started filming in February in London. Production is on a brief hiatus amid the directorial changes until Howard takes over on July 10, Lucasfilm said.
In addition to Harrelson's role and Ehrenreich playing Han Solo, Donald Glover will play Lando Calrissian, made famous in George Lucas' original trilogy by actor Billy Dee Williams. Clarke and Thandie Newton will also star in the film.
The Han Solo film is the second of three stand-alone 'Star Wars' films that kicked off with last year's 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.'
