Ron Howard Shares A Glimpse Inside The Millennium Falcon On The 'Han Solo' Set

By: Benjamin Hart

When it comes to behind the scenes looks at the untitled Han Solo film, director Ron Howard never disappoints! Howard's Twitter and Instagram pages have been an incredible source of photos from the set over the past few months, and today that trend continues.

Just moments ago, Ron Howard posted a new image to his Twitter giving us a new look inside the Millennium Falcon. The view shows a monitor and a doorway onboard the Falcon. Both in the photo and on the monitor's screen, a blurry figure can be visible. The individual appears to be wearing a gold & black costume and possibly carrying a blaster. Ron Howard captioned the photo, saying; "Director's monitor. Turns out Smuggling has its stressful moments in the #Galaxy":

The most intriguing part of the photo are the walls of the Falcon, which appear to be whiter and cleaner than we've ever seen them before. Being that this film is set many years prior to the Original Trilogy, could it be the Millennium Falcon has yet to fall into its infamous "hunk of junk" state we've seen previously? Another photo shared by Ron Howard seems to add credence to this idea, as he mentions having to wear "booties" over his shoes so as to not scuff the floor of the Falcon:

Personally, I'm really excited by the prospect of seeing a "newer" Millennium Falcon in the Han Solo film. While the still untitled production is said to be an origin story for the beloved smuggler, I think it's safe assume it will also show the Falcon's origin. We'll have to wait and see how it all plays out on May 25th, 2018 when it opens in theaters!

The untitled young Han Solo film stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Kura, Woody Harrelson (True Detective) as Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Thandie Newton (Westworld), and Paul Bettany (The Avengers).  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).
