If you look to the far right of the photo director Ron Howard just shared from the set of the untitled Han Solo movie, you'll get a little sneak peek of what's to come.
The pic shows Chewbacca -- played in this movie by Joonas Suotamo -- checking out what's presumably one of his own scenes, opposite what looks like another Wookiee. This movie is meant to show younger Han on adventures with his buddy Chewie, as they meet Lando Calrissian, but it looks like it might also give Chewie a larger role in general.

Wookiee family? Chewie's love interest? Other?
Fans had a lot of punny replies, and Ron Howard even commented on one:
I suggest a new strategy: let the Wookiee direct.— Stuart Partridge (@stuartp) July 17, 2017
he's very capable. tho there is a language barrier https://t.co/4lkYTTDL1X— Ron Howard (@RealRonHoward) July 17, 2017
At least we know he reads his replies. But it's probably not worth tweeting to ask for a trailer or official movie image, 'cause he's not likely to be there yet. He's only been at this for less than a month.
The untitled Han Solo film -- starring Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Michael K. Williams, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge -- is scheduled for release on May 25, 2018.
