Yesterday it was revealed that Jon Favreau would be voicing an important alien character in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, and now today it appears as if the Director/Actor has teased who his alien character is. If you watched the movies full teaser trailer, then you’ve already seen Jon’s important alien, because he was featured in the roll call section where Beckett informs Han that he’s forming a team for a heist. If you remember among the characters shown there was an alien with four arms piloting some sort of ship, and based on a tweet from Favreau, it appears that this is the alien he’s voicing.

Now we still don’t have a name, or much information on how this alien will be involved with Beckett and Han, but I think it’s safe to say that Favreau is voicing the four armed alien dude that we saw in the teaser. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that he’s some sort of weapons expert, or marksman when it comes to manning a ship’s turret.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25, 2018.
