The official Star Wars website has just confirmed one of the most exciting rumors about the upcoming Han Solo movie: Woody Harrelson has joined the cast.

Variety reported last week that Harrelson was in talks for a role in the movie, likely playing Han Solo’s mentor. We’re guessing the character wasn’t a very effective mentor, considering how Han turned out.

Harrelson joins a promising cast in the spinoff, including Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, and Emilia Clarke as a yet unnamed character.

The Han Solo prequel movie is scheduled for release in 2018.
