Ron Howard releases images from the Han Solo movie featuring Chewbacca and The Empire

August 18th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Ron Howard is at it again!

The director has been teasing images from the Han Solo movie that he’s not directing for a few weeks now (here, here and here) and he’s at it again.

Two new images have appeared on the director’s Twitter page featuring two BIG parts of the Star Wars story: The Empire and Chewbacca.

The Empire image looks like it’s taken from inside the Death Star and features a very familiar helmit and console… although if it IS from the Death Star then Han can’t be involved as he first saw it in A New Hope.

However, since a lot of Imperial architecture looks similar, then it may be somewhere completely different and since we surmised before that the movie may well see Han first meeting and rescuing Chewbacca from the Empire, then perhaps these two images are connected?

Anyway, check them out below and let us know you thoughts:

And then, Chewie’s back again in another image from the director!

The Han Solo movie is due May 25, 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….
