Ron Howard Teases the Untitled ‘Han Solo’ Movie in a Cryptic Tweet

Less than two weeks ago, citing creative differences with Disney and Lucasfilm, directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller left the upcoming Han Solo movie that’s in the works. They were shortly replaced by Ron Howard who took to Twitter on Thursday to offer the first kind-of glimpse of the set.

“Cool scene today but I’m afraid this is the most revealing image I dare share from my 1st day on the set of the Untitled Han Solo movie,” Howard tweeted, including in the tweet of photo of not much of anything, really.

The picture features his shoes, the stage, water bottles and a few cords and wires. How very telling.

One key takeaway: Cast and crew are staying hydrated. Other than that — not much.

Thursday marked Howard’s first day on the set as director. His tweet is similar, in terms of revealing almost nothing, to one posted by Miller back in January, while he was still involved with the movie.

The Han Solo film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, along with Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino), Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson, and remains scheduled for a May 2018 release. Filming was recently extended to autumn of this year.

Hopefully, Howard’s next tweet will tell us a little more than what he and the cast have been drinking.
