Ron Howard Tweets New Picture of Chewbacca From the Han Solo Film Set

By: Dominic Jones

Ron Howard loves posting lots of fun tidbits and sneak peaks behind the scenes from the set of the untitled Han Solo film, which he took over from Phil Lord and Chris Miller as director last month.  Today he posted a new image of himself looking at the footage being shot on a monitor, but it's what's on the monitor that's really exciting.  The footage Howard is looking at appears to be a close-up on Chewbacca with several extras in the background.  Check it out for yourself below,

We've seen Chewbacca featured in other social media posts from the set by Howard and other members of the cast.  What makes this one interesting is the people behind our beloved wookiee?  Who are they?  What do they want?  Are their friend or foe?  We likely won't find out until the film hits theaters next year.

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).
