Some people just want to watch a droid burn. If you’re one of them, then you’re in luck, because director Ron Howard has shared a video of a flaming R2 unit from the set of the Han Solo Star Wars anthology film.
Captioned “Things are a little rough all over the Galaxy,” it’s likely shot on the same junkyard set as the two behind-the-scenes videos released by Howard earlier this month. The Oscar winner also released an image of him scolding an R2 unit, so one can only hope this isn’t a result of that droid getting fired.
Howard became director for the untitled Star Wars spinoff following the firing of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Howard has assured fans that production is “coming along great,” a sentiment reiterated by Glover.
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, Michael K. Williams and Woody Harrelson. The as-yet-untitled film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
