Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 19 (ANI): Looks like the world of seven kingdoms and the galaxies are colliding in style and a twist.

StarWars.com recently announced that Clarke, who is known for her stirring portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen in 'Game of Thrones', will join the upcoming untitled Han Solo 'Star Wars' movie.

"Clarke joins Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover in the highly-anticipated film, which is set prior to the original Star Wars trilogy," the website reports.

Reportedly, the 'Terminator Genisys' actress' role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures.

Although not many other details about the film have been released yet, the untitled Han Solo movie, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, is set for release in 2018. (ANI)
