Chewbacca has gotten quite a bit of press in the lead-up to the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film. A couple weeks back, star Emilia Clarke showed off the fan-favorite Kashyyyk pilot in a behind-the-scenes video touting her 10 million Instagram followers. And now, director Ron Howard has taken a photo from the editing suite that offers a peek at a close-up of Chewbacca in a scene from the film.
Howard is clearly overjoyed by the close-up, perhaps because he's thrilled with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, or because he's simply enjoying himself while editing the upcoming Star Wars spinoff. Either way, it just makes you want to smile. Check it out below.
Based off a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the Han Solo spin-off 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 Star Wars anthology film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
