Birds of Prey badass Mary Elizabeth Winstead has signed up for a mission in a galaxy far, far away.
Details on her character are non-existent for the time being, but when production finally begins in California this spring, expect some meatier updates.
Will she wield a lightsaber for good, or could Winstead be about to step into the iconic pantheon of Star Wars villainy? Maybe she'll be plastered in motion-captured special effects?
Let the theories flow through you.
Interestingly, the franchise newcomer's real-life partner is none other than Obi-Wan Kenobi's Ewan McGregor, who's busy with his own solo Star Wars project.
"I'm very excited about it," the Scotsman commented back in 2020. "I think we shot the last one I did in 2003 [Revenge of the Sith], so it's been a while and I'm that much closer to Alec Guinness' age now.
"So that was always the fun part about playing Obi-Wan Kenobi, for me, was to try and study Alec Guinness and think about maybe how he would have behaved in these scenes as a younger man.
"So now I'll be a bit closer and it'll be nice to sort of bridge that gap. It's really exciting."
