Ron Howard and Lando Calrissian Head to Hyperspace in Latest ‘Han Solo’ Photo
Just last night we got our first look at Donald Glover all dressed up as a young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo movie. Ron Howard shared a little selfie with a shot of Glover on the monitor behind him, and this morning the director revealed another little sneak peak: a trip to Hyperspace.
The Han Solo director tweeted a photo from the set today showing the crew of the Millennium Falcon taking off in hyperdrive. And if you squint and look closer, you’ll see Glover’s Lando, donning his new yellow threads, behind the controls of the Falcon, which as this point is still his ship.
Hyperspace is real. My first experience. Wow. pic.twitter.com/POilRi5ePX

I joked before about Howard’s annoyingly cryptic Han Solo set photos, the first of which was a shot of his dirty boots and a case of water bottles. But Howard is clearly channeling his directing expertise into his cell phone photos as well, expertly framing the shots he shares on social media to ensure we only get the slightest bit of a tease. In the photo above, we can just barely see the shoulders of another character on the middle monitor, with the crew member in front perfectly concealing the person’s face. Intentional? Oh I am sure. That might just be Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo, or based on the costume, a close up of Lando.
Howard’s been busy since he took over the reigns of the still-untitled movie after the departure of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. But he’s been sharing photos more frequently, so it’s just a matter of time before we get a good look at our titular smuggler. We got a good look at Chewbacca on set, but I’m excited to finally see Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s rumored droid and Emilia Clarke‘s character. Keep your eyes on Ron Howard’s Instagram, a phrase I never really thought I’d say. The titleless Han Solo movie hits theaters May 25, 2018.
