New Han Solo set videos reveal podracer junkyard?
Director Ron Howard has tweeted two new Han Solo set videos, this time featuring what looks like a podracer junkyard. You can clearly see several giant mechanical forms that resemble pod engines, and Howard himself calls the place, “Where old Speeders go to die.” Check out the videos below!
The untitled Han Solo film features Hail, Caesar‘s Alden Ehrenreich as Han, with Atlanta‘s Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and The Force Awakens‘ Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Woody Harrelson is playing Han’s mentor, a man by the name of Beckett, while Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, Westworld‘s Thandie Newton, The Wire‘s Michael K. Williams and Fleabag‘s Phoebe Waller-Bridge are playing undisclosed roles.
In the wake of the departure of directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars movie, Lucasfilm hired director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code) to take their places. It is unknown how credit will be divided for the finished film, as at least 3/4s of it was already shot when Howard took over.
What do you guys think of the Han Solo set videos Ron Howard tweeted? Would it be cool if there was podracing in the new movie? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @ComingSoonnet.
