‘Solo’ Character Names For Thandie Newton & Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Included in the batch of official stills taken from the full-length trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story was the revelation of the character names played by actresses Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Before we tackle the new character names, it should be noted that the images provided by Lucasfilm also confirm the character played by Woody Harrelson is indeed named Beckett, which we learned from Harrelson himself nearly a year ago.

As expected based on earlier rumors, Phoebe Waller-Bridge plays a female droid named L3-37 via a motion-capture performance.

Thandie Newton portrays a character named Val whom some fans believed was associated with the Imperial army after seeing this BTS image posted by director Ron Howard back in September.
