As has been the way with the tumultuous production, we’d only just finished celebrating the news that John Williams would be scoring Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, when rumours began to surface that Disney are bracing themselves for the kind of cinematic crash-and-burn that’d we’d never have expected from the Millennium Falcon.
Stories have been flying out of this production like a chaotic asteroid field, so it’s nice to be able to report something straight from the source, as Ron Howard released another on-set picture from Solo: A Star Wars Story via his Twitter account.

It doesn’t exactly reveal much, positioning Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo, if it is indeed the actor at the wheel, as some kind of galactic Baby Driver, which would be weird considering he beat Ansel Elgort to the role. What do you folks think? Are there any clues in the pic that link it to Harrison Ford’s iconic smuggler?
Solo: A Star Wars Story features Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) as the famous smuggler, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson (War for the Planet of the Apes) as Beckett (Solo’s mentor), Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Thandie Newton (Westworld), Paul Bettany (Avengers: Infinity War), Ian Kenny (Sing Street), and Warwick Davis (Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi) in as-yet-unrevealed roles. It is set for release on May 25th 2018.
