Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke and director Ron Howard have taken to social media to share a new look at the set of the upcoming Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story.
While the role of newcomer Clarke has gone on record to say the secrecy shrouding the Lucasfilm production is even scarier than the level of secrecy surrounding Game of Thrones, the actress is certainly having fun on set as she has revealed herself having fun with Joonas Suotoma fully suited up as Chewbacca. As for Clarke’s role itself, her character remains a mystery.
In addition, Howard has offered fans a look at a new set featuring a creature as he and cinematographer Bradford Young (Arrival, A Most Violent Year) work out a shot before shooting the scene.
You can check out the new set video and photo below.
