Ron Howard shares another somewhat revealing shot from the Han Solo film – this time with an image of Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian on his monitor.
Another Twitter snap by new Hanthlogy director Ron Howard shows us Chewbacca – and a brief, fuzzy look at two Wookiees having a moment. Will we be seeing Chewie’s family on screen, for the first time since the Holiday Special? Or, given that Chewbacca himself is behind the camera, two new Wookiees entirely?
Chewbacca’s wife, Malla, and son, Lumpawaroo, both appeared in the Aftermath books, making them canon again. We’ve also seen, most notably in Rebels, that the concept of the Empire enslaving Wookiees for labor was also maintained. That was a major part of the Han and Chewbacca backstory in the noncanon Legends timeline (introduced in Brian Daley’s Han Solo novels), and could possibly be revisited in the film.
Ron Howard finally points his camera at something we can use – someone’s wardrobe. The Twitter version features some colorful and very satiny jackets, while the Instagram one looks a bit more like capes. Consensus? Lando, naturally. Seems a little too easy, though.
Meanwhile, Woody Harrelson comments on the director change… Well, exactly how you’d expect Woody Harrelson to comment.
TMZ is at it again, and this time they have some shots from the Han Solo film that appear to actually be from a studio shoot. They feature Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo, Woody Harrelson’s Beckett, Chewbacca, and a woman who could be Emilia Clarke. The shots supposedly date from before Lord and Miller’s exit.
Meanwhile, Ron Howard shares his coffee cup.
The British Film Institue has posted a brief video featuring trainees who are working on Star Wars. Most of the trainees are shown working on the Han Solo movie – and we do see cinematographer Bradford Young – but the headline is few brief peeks at the filming of The Last Jedi. The shots, which feature Rey and Captain Phasma, are from scenes that we see briefly in the trailer, but it is our first look at any new Last Jedi footage since then.
→ Some new information indicates we might see a second trailer this summer. D23 Expo (July 15) is teasing “never-before-seen footage,” but given that they group all their live-action films together, we’re not guaranteed anything Star Wars.
→ Adam Driver, in an interview that’s mostly about him presenting the daughter of a disabled veteran with a scholarship, says The Last Jedi creates “new rules for the Star Wars universe.”
