When it comes to franchises shrouded in secrecy, #StarWars is the shroud-iest. From Emilia Clarke admitting it's scarier to discuss Star Wars than Game of Thrones to the studio basically claiming "everything's fine here!" after firing directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller from the Han Solo shoot, tensions have certainly remained quite high surrounding this upcoming flick.
Ron Howard, who took over the reins from Lord and Miller, has been trying to reassure fans by giving us a look at the production process. He tweeted a pic his very first day on set, and soon gave us a sneak peek at Donald Glover's Lando.
In his latest take to social media, the veteran director tweeted out a picture of him "working out a shot" with cinematographer Bradford Young. Seems rather vague enough, until you pull out your enhancing goggles and notice a peculiar figure we have never seen before...
One keen fan took a screenshot of the figure with the appropriate caption wondering, "What is this!?"
Of course, we weren't given any solid information on the creature, because #RonHoward likes the notion of fans pining for more. What we could make out from the image is a large creature with ginormous otherworldly hands. It also seems to be wearing some type of a helmet, plus some larger headgear for added protection.
We will hopefully get an answer to what this creature is when the still-untitled film releases. Until then, speculation must suffice!
The untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Joonas Suotamo. It hits theaters on May 25th, 2018.
Any guesses for what this creature is and how it will tie into the Han Solo story? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
