Ron Howard Uses 'Star Wars' Toys To Plan Out Scenes For The Han Solo Movie

By: Dominic Jones

Ron Howard loves sharing little teases about the upcoming untitled Han Solo movie on social media.  Ever since he took over the job from Phil Lord and Chris Miller in June, he has been sharing lots of fun little peaks behind the scenes at what they're working on.  His latest update doesn't actually show us any of the set, but it does give us some insight into his process.  Howard tweeted a picture of a Chewbacca toy, with the caption, "action figures really help us figure out high octane action for #UntitledHanSoloMovie Yes folks, this is my day job"

He also confirmed that they make "explody" noises when planning out the action with their toys.
Admit it, if you were making a Star Wars movie, you'd do the same thing!

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).
