Ron Howard took over the project after the departure of directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the pair left claiming they were experiencing creative differences with the studio several months into shooting.
Not much is known about the plot of the film however Howard has been fairly active on social media and even been kind enough to post regular images from set. We do know that the movie is set during Han Solo’s youth and best guesses would include him meeting Chewbacca, coming into possession of the Millennium Falcon, and maybe even completing the Kessel Run.
Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany and Ian Kenny.
The movie arrives in cinemas May 25, 2018.
