Ron Howard Posts Video From the Untitled Han Solo Film Set (Updated!)

By: Dominic Jones

Ron Howard has been very prolific on social media since taking over as director in late June, posting lots of pictures from the set of the untitled Han Solo film.  Evidently, Howard loves to tease fans with quick peaks behind the scenes at what they're working on at Pinewood Studios in London.  Today, he took it a step further and posted a 15 second video of the film's crew rehearsing a crane shot on the studio backlot.  Check it out for yourself below,

The video gives us a look at the massive set that they're shooting on.  The location appears to be a rocky area (a mine, perhaps?) and there seems to be some massive machinery on the ground.  What they're shooting there, well, that's still anyone's guess.  Based on the camera movement it looks like they're planning on shooting some sort of action sequence (hence the sweeping crane shot), but we won't know for sure until the film hits theaters next year.

UPDATE:  Ron Howard has posted another video from the set!  He captioned this one with, "Where old Speeders go to die."  Check it out below,
It looks like this is from the ground level of the set seen in the first video.  It's also interesting that there looks to be some snow on the ground.  As always, these videos seems to raise more questions than they answer!

The untitled young Han Solo film hits theaters on May 25th, 2018 and stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Woody Harrelson (True Detective) as Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Thandie Newton (Westworld), and Michael K. Williams (The Wire).  The film is directed by Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind), with a script by Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) and his son Jon Kasdan (The First Time).
