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.
