"We couldn't be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody," the project's directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller said in a statement Wednesday on StarWars.com.

"His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong," they continued.

Harrelson joins a growing cast that includes Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke in an unspecified role and Alden Ehrenreich who is stepping into the title role made famous by Harrison Ford.

Recently, it was reported that Harrelson was in negotiations to join the film and was Disney's top choice to portray a mentor to Han Solo.

While Solo was never seen with a mentor on film, a set of novels from the "Star Wars" Expanded Universe that Disney has made noncanonical, featured a character named Shrike who was a bounty hunter turned space pirate who adopted Solo and taught him everything he knew.

The Han Solo spinoff film is expected to arrive in theaters on May 25, 2018.
