Ron Howard shows Donald Glover's Lando in young Han Solo movie

Posted on

Ron Howard desperately wants to tell you about the young Han Solo movie.

Ever since the veteran filmmaker took over directing duties on the new Star Wars film, he has been releasing behind the screen shots that are increasingly revealing.

On Monday, it was a monitor with Chewbacca in an embrace with another Wookiee. Tuesday, he gave us a portrait of himself … with what appears to be Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.

There’s a somewhat blurry closeup of his Instagram post, but it shows Lando to be the snappy dresser we always expected.

The movie is due in theaters next year, but it hit some turbulence this summer when Lucasfilm and previous directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller parted company. Howard, an Oscar-winner for A Beautiful Mind and the director of countless other films, stepped into the void — and seems to be having a pretty good time.

Clearly, he can’t wait to show us this movie.
