Ron Howard Tweets New 'Solo' Behind the Scenes Picture

By: Dominic Jones

Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard has kicked of 2018 by sharing a new behind the scenes image from his upcoming film.  The director posted a new shot of what appears to be the young Han Solo in his speeder.  The image is similar to one he posted back in September, however the new image is in colour whereas the September image was black and white.  The new shot gives us a better look at what we can assume are aspects of Han's costume (specifically his pants and his gloves) and what the inside of his speeder looks like.  Howard tweeted the image with the caption, "Happy New Year from Team #Solo. We’re pretty pumped for 2018". Check it out below,

The costume appears to line up with the one that Han Solo actor Alden Ehrenreich was spotted wearing during a location shoot last summer (you can see those images here).  While those images were taken prior to the infamous director's change in June 2017 it seems unlikely that Han's costume would be dramatically altered by the reshoots (his personality on the other hand is another issue altogether).

Solo: A Star Wars Story 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) 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).
