Star Wars fans are counting down the days until the release of The Last Jedi this December, but let's not also forget to count the days until next summer's Han Solo anthology film. Production is coming to an end, but director Ron Howard is still tweeting out some juicy pictures from the set — and today's is no exception.
Ron Howard Teases Fans With A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Millennium Falcon
As you can see in the tweet above, director Ron Howard is teasing an intense sequence aboard what appears to be Han Solo's signature spaceship. Howard tweeted the following:
Director's monitor. Turns out Smuggling has its stressful moments in the #Galaxy
First of all, the corridor of the Millennium Falcon looks cleaner and sharper than ever. This is because the Corellian light freighter is a much newer ship than it was in A New Hope. (In this film, we should expect to see the ship get "broken in" after Han acquires it.)
Also, there is a blurry figure running down the corridor. While most of us would automatically assume that the mysterious figure is Han, on closer look it actually seems to be actor Woody Harrelson, who is playing Garris Shrike, an Extended Universe character that mentored Han in one of the #StarWars novels. Given that, it's safe to assume that they will carry that aspect of his character over to the big screen.
While it isn't exactly clear what smuggling adventure Han, Garris and the rest of the main characters will be taking part in, Ron Howard has certainly gave the impression that it will be an epic one. On top of seeing more smuggler adventures, the film will also reportedly feature the deadly Empire.
After #TheLastJedi is released in theaters, the Star Wars community will begin to receive a lot more information on the film. Until then, we will just have to make do with Ron Howard's Twitter account.
The Han Solo anthology film is scheduled to release on May 25th, 2018. The epic blockbuster will be directed by Ron Howard and will star Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Paul Bettany.
