Back in early February, Jon Favreau posted a picture with Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard, showing that he had been on set.

Then, nearly two weeks later, Howard responded to the tweet with a cool piece of information. Favreau is voicing a “cool” and “important” character in the Han Solo-spinoff.
Wondering why we r all together? @Jon_Favreau is voicing a very cool & important alien character for #HanSolo Flattered & fortunate I could pull him away from his #LionKing directing duties https://t.co/W5N7YoAlq6

I have a feeling Favreau’s part in Solo is akin to that of Daniel Craig in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The actor was in a scene and talked for nearly a minute, but was disguised as a Stormtrooper. That said, however, I would love to see Favreau get the spotlight for a cameo in the movie.
