Ron Howard Teases 'Spicey' Scenes With Han Solo Set Photo
Ron Howard is spicing up our lives.
The Han Solo movie director shared a photo from the film's set on Wednesday, posting it to his Instagram with a simple caption: "Spicey?"
That was enough to excite die-hard fans, who are now eagerly speculating that the film will show Kessel Run, the hyperspace route used by smugglers to move spice from Kessel's mines. In the Star Wars films, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) is known for having traveled the route in a record-breaking 12 (not 14!) parsecs. Therefore, with the new set photo, Howard is possibly hinting that we'll see the legendary feat.
Alden Ehrenreich plays the younger version of the smuggler in the still-untitled film. The cast also includes Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Paul Bettany, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Whether it features Kessel Run or not, the Han Solo movie is due out in theaters on May 25, 2018.
