Did Ron Howard drop a major clue about the Han Solo movie?

September 22nd, 2017 by Dave Bowling Comments

So, yeah. This happened this week.

Either Ron Howard is dropping us some fairly hefty clues about next year’s Han Solo, erm, solo movie, or he’s trolling us all to a truly expert level. This week, the director tweeted this:

Here’s a close-up:

That looks like the bottom of a mine shaft. You know, where they mine stuff. And Howard’s clue of “spicey” leads our collective mental meanderings to the spice mines of Kessel, the very place C-3PO feared being sold to. And the end/start point of the infamous Kessel Run.

So could this be it? Could we finally find out how you can make the Run in 12 parsecs, despite a parsec being a measurement of distance, not time? Will this see the Millennium Falcon using its speed to run through a nest of black holes instead of going around them, as is the fandom explanation? Or is Ron Howard just winding up every Star Wars geek on the planet? Who knows? We’ll have to wait until next year to find out.

C’mon black holes…

The currently untitled Han Solo movie is scheduled for release on 25 May 2018.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
