Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Ron Howard on Wednesday said fellow filmmaker Jon Favreau is lending his voice to a non-human character in Howard's upcoming movie Solo: A Stars Wars Story.

"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," Howard wrote as he retweeted a photo Favreau posted of him, Howard and writer Lawrence Kasdan.
