Ron Howard and Emilia Clarke reveal behind-the-scenes goodies from the Han Solo movie

July 30th, 2017 by Marc Comments

The Han Solo movie is only 299 days away now (only!) and we’ve got two news looks behind the scenes.

The first is from new director Ron Howard who shared an image (below) from the set featuring himself and cinematographer Bradford Young… and we’re loving that alien in the corner!

However, that’s not all!

Oh, no. The Queen of Dragons herself, the lovely Emilia  Clarke who also stars in the movie has reached ten million followers on instagram… and to celebrate she told Chewbacca himself!

You can see the shenanigans below… as well as the wookie himself!

The Han Solo standalone film arrives on May 25th, 2018

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
