Director Ron Howard took the reins of the Han Solo-centric Star Wars spin-off not that long ago, and from the sound of things, he might be bringing his brother Clint in to make a cameo.
Ron Howard has shown off a lot of the set of the movie via Twitter as a way of helping fans get an understanding of what the movie will be like, and after one of his most recent posts, it looks like he’s answering fan responses as well. When asked about if his brother would make a cameo in the Star Wars movie, Howard responded with the following:
You won’t be disappointed

Clint Howard is known for his involvement with genre entertainment, appearing in three Star Trek shows (The Original Series, Deep Space 9, and Enterprise) as different characters and prominently appearing in several horror B-movies. Howard is also known for appearing in many of his older brother’s movies, with supporting roles in Cocoon, Backdraft, and Apollo 13, among others – so it’s neat to see that the new Star Wars will have a different kind of family reunion going for it.
The untitled Star Wars Han Solo spin-off is scheduled for a May 25, 2018 release date. Its cast includes Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Michael K. Williams, Ian Kenny, and Warwick Davis.
8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See
May the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.
Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.
Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
