Star Wars made a major casting announcement on Friday. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has signed on for the forthcoming Han Solo movie. The as-yet-unnamed film is set to hit theaters in 2018.

It’s unclear what Clarke’s role will be in the film, though this is the second major casting announcement Star Wars has made in two months. It was revealed on Oct. 21 that Donald Glover would play young Lando Calrissian.

The film’s protagonist, Han Solo, will be played by Alden Ehrenreich.
