As Donald Glover makes his departure from the Han Solo movie set, let’s take a moment to appreciate the real star of this Star Wars standalone film: his mustache. Ron Howard, who stepped in to direct the untitled work mid-production, shared another behind-the-scenes snapshot from the set — this one featuring Glover’s Lando Calrissian scruff.
“Wildly impressive [Donald Glover] wrapped his work on #UntitledHanSoloMovie last night,” Howard tweeted in the early hours of Saturday morning. “We’re all gonna miss you Donald!”
Glover, portraying a younger Lando, was glimpsed in full costume through an earlier, though blurry, set photo from the director, who seems eager to show fans as much as possible from the production. Billy Dee Williams played the character in the original Star Wars films.
Between Glover and Henry Cavill’s Mission: Impossible scruff, ‘staches are having a moment. See the new photo below.
The Han Solo film stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) as the galactic smuggler in his early days, with Joonas Suotamo taking over for longtime Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew. Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge star, as well, while Howard confirmed roles for Star Wars veteran Warwick Davis and his brother, Clint Howard.
Michael K. Williams recently revealed his role was cut from the film after original helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller were dropped by Lucasfilm and Howard came aboard for reshoots.
The Han Solo movie is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
