Subscribe To Ron Howard's First Han Solo Set Photo Is More Amusing Than Revealing Updates
Ron Howard has arrived on the set of the new Han Solo movie. He's clearly excited as he wanted to be sure to tweet out some pictures. Unfortunately, if you were looking for spoilers you won't find them here. He tells us that he's filming a cool scene, but if you thought you were going to actually see any of it, you can forget it. Still, Howard wanted to send out something so this is what we got.
While it's Ron Howard's first day on the set, filming for the still untitled Han Solo movie has been going on for a while, so he's jumping into the middle of a moving machine. While previous director's Phil Lord and Chris Miller never gave us much from the set either, certainly whatever is happening after the movie has been in production for a while is not something that anybody at Lucasfilm wants us to see. We haven't so much as been given an official title yet, and we'll likely get that before we ever see anything of note from the film.
Of course, fans are really excited to see what comes of the Han Solo movie, something you can tell by the fact that a picture of a flat of bottled water has over 5,000 likes. Things have been a little tense on the set, what with the creative differences between Phil Lord and Chris Miller and LucasFilm eventually leading to the directors leaving the project. It's fairly rare for a director switch to happen at this point in production, and the fact that it happened on such a high profile film means all eyes will be on Ron Howard to see where things go from here. We're sure somebody is trying to analyze the bottles of water to see if there's some sort of hidden secret in the arrangement.
The Han Solo movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as the younger version of the famous Star Wars smuggler. Donald Glover co-stars as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo takes on the iconic role of Chewbacca. Woody Harrelson will play Han Solo's mentor, a character named Beckett. Finally Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton also star, in yet undisclosed roles.
We look forward to more pictures from the set of the Han Solo movie. We fully expect to get great images of the catering table, maybe the door to Ron Howard's trailer. Perhaps, if we're lucky, Howard will show one of the cameras while they're actually filming something, not what it's filming, of course, just the camera.
