Kit Harington, Gemma Chan and Barry Keoghan will join The Eternals, the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s cosmic Phase 4 adventure, Disney confirmed during its biannual D23 expo Saturday. Game of Thrones actor Harington will play non-Eternal Dane Whitman, Chernobyl‘s Barry Keoghan will be Druig, and Crazy Rich Asians star Chan is portraying Sersi.

The movie, scheduled to come out Nov. 6, 2020, will reunite Harington with Richard Madden; the pair played cousins Jon Snow and Robb Stark in Game of Thrones. Chan previously dipped into the MCU as Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel, but Sersi is a separate character.

Much of the cast took to the stage during the D23 panel, and stood below concept art showing their characters in costume.

The movie was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con last month, where Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Don Lee, Lia McHugh, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry and Lauren Ridloff were revealed as its stars.
