This may not come as too much of a surprise, but it looks like we might finally be paying a visit to Han Solo’s homeworld of Corellia for the very first time in the Star Wars saga with next year’s Anthology movie.
Director Ron Howard, who has been very active on social media since taking over directing duties from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, has taken to Twitter to share yet another set photo, this time featuring himself and screenwriter Jon Kasdan as they try to keep warm next to a burnt-out R2 unit, complete with the caption: “Those Corellian nights get a little chilly”.

It is set for release on May 25th 2018.
