Just over two weeks ago, director Ron Howard revealed that he was re-teaming with his “A Beautiful Mind” and “The Da Vinci Code” star Paul Bettany for a role in the upcoming young Han Solo film at Lucasfilm.
Today, Howard has posted another photo from the set alongside Bettany with the message that the actor has wrapped filming. Donald Glover wrapped filming his role as Lando Calrissian on the project a few weeks ago.
Additionally Making Star Wars reports that the planets of Corellia and Kessel will be featured locations in the new film. Corellia is Han’s home planet, while Kessel ties to a quote from the original 1977 film about Han’s piloting prowess.
Alden Ehrenreich stars as the beloved smuggler character alongside Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge in the project which is still scheduled to be released on May 25th 2018.
