Ron Howard is back on Twitter today with another tease from the set of the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars spinoff. In this grainy photo, Howard notes that not all is well at this moment in time in the Star Wars galaxy.
The photo appears to have been taken on a dusty surface, with a lot of what appears to be seemingly junk piles. Neither of these things is new to the Star Wars saga, but their appearance in the Han Solo film suggests a deeper look into the criminal underworld of the Galactic Empire.
