New Han Solo Photo May Tease Millennium Falcon’s Kessel Run

Ron Howard is at it again. The director, who is helming the Star Wars anthology film about Han Solo, has shared another mysterious photo from the film’s set. This time, the Tweet includes a photo that shows what appears to be a mine and its mine shaft with the caption, “Spicey?”

Though that isn’t much to go on, hardcore Star Wars fans will likely realize all these clues point to one momentous moment from Han Solo’s past: the Kessel Run, or the route smugglers take to push the spice mined from Kessel. As mentioned in the original Star Wars trilogy, Han famously completed the Kessel Run in twelve parsecs. With his Tweet, Howard seems to suggest that this moment will make it into his film.

Luke’s protocol droid C-3P0 also mentions Kessel’s spice mines in Star Wars: A New Hope, where he said, “We’re doomed! We’ll be sent to the spice mines of Kessel, smashed into who-knows-what!”

Based on a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the Han Solo spinoff stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, in addition to Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Woody Harrelson. The as-yet-untitled film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
