Any room for one more?

The stars of the new Han Solo movie (still untitled, so far!) crowded into the iconic Millennium Falcon cockpit for the very first cast photo of the highly-anticipated upcoming flick. While Disney and Lucasfilm keep notoriously tight-lipped on all 'Star Wars' features, they released some big news Tuesday. Here's everything we know:

1. The cast is out of this world. Heading up the starship is Alden Ehrenreich, who plays a young Han Solo in the role made famous by Harrison Ford. (For new fans, he's the one in the leather jacket in the cast photo.) But he may have trouble stealing the show: He'll share the screen with "Game of Thrones"' Queen of Dragons Emilia Clarke, "Westworld" star Thandie Newton, and newly-announced "Lion King" lead Donald Glover. Oh, and Woody Harrelson.

Pictured in the cast photo are Ehrenreich, Clarke, Harrelson, Glover, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.

2. Filming is already underway. "Star Wars" movies are always shot in exotic locations across the globe, and time will tell what earthly landscapes become interstellar planets. But the press release confirms that the cameras are rolling, and the film is scheduled for release on May 25, 2018.

3. Some veteran crew members are returning for production. Production designers, makeup artists, casting directors, costume designers and more professionals who've already proven their "Star Wars" prowess are returning to work on the upcoming feature.

4. Although filming's only just begun, the directors are already in awe. "Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous," the directors said in a statement. "We can't think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky."
