Since assuming directorial duties on the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story, veteran filmmaker Ron Howards has shared a number of behind-the-scenes images from the upcoming film, but his latest post may be the most perplexing tease to date.
Posted on his offical Twitter account, the image features a piece of ruins with three mysterious symbols carved into the stone. Howard’s inclusion of the hashtag “#McQuarrie” is undoubtedly a reference to concept artist Ralph McQuarrie, which has prompted fans to speculate that McQuarrie’s early designs for the original Star Wars film could be incorporated into the upcoming spin-off. Several fans have noted that the symbols are remarkably similar to the writings on a column featured in McQuarrie’s illustration of a Yavin 4 location named the Temple of the Blueleaf Cluster, though fans may have to wait until the film is released next summer to find out the true meaning behind the symbols.

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!
