Clean up director Ron Howard has been, perhaps, a bit coy with his teasing tweets from the set of the Young Han Solo prequel movie, but nothing has screamed “misdirection” like his latest tweet. While acknowledging the shooting of “key new” scenes for the movie, Howard posted a chummy shot of himself and Thandie Newton, whose character has yet to be revealed, but who appears to be wearing the insignia of the Empire on her right shoulder.

Lawrence and Jon Kasdan wrote the script, which focuses on the formative years of the young smuggler and scoundrel (Alden Ehrenreich), his gambling buddy (Donald Glover) and a big walking carpet who owes him a life debt (Joona Suotamo). Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Pheobe Waller-Bridge also star.
The Untitled Han Solo movie is slated for release on May 25, 2018.
