‘Star Wars’: Ron Howard Teases Imperial Presence For Han Solo Spin-Off

Ron Howard, the director of the Han Solo-led Star Wars spin-off, has revealed a new image hinting that the Empire will be involved in the movie's story.

Ron Howard continues to hype up his Star Wars movie by showing off the helmet of Imperial personnel inside some kind of military base occupied by the Galactic Empire.

The image of the set features an Imperial Navy helmet (the same kind as the ones seen throughout the Original Trilogy) along with a panel that looks very similar to the one Luke, Han, and Chewbacca would encounter on the Death Star years after the events of this movie:

Right now there’s not a lot known about the film, but given that there’s a criminal element to this story, it shouldn’t be surprising to hear that the authorities will be involved with whatever mess Han gets himself into. Howard is making it clear that we’ll be getting more looks at the set of his movie as production moves on along, so it should be safe to expect more pictures like this one as the production gets closer to completion.

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!
