Ron Howard has revealed yet another set photo from the yet-to-be titled Star Wars anthology film about Han Solo with this one painting a very ominous picture of what we can expect. Howard posted on Twitter what seems to be either a junkyard or a crash site due to the smoke and debris around, with the caption, "Shooting a scene about desperate and dangerous times in the Galaxy."

Of course, no faces can be seen, with Howard leaving a lot up to the viewer's imagination, but this continues his trend of cryptic teasing what's to come. He recently hinted at the Millenium Falcon's famous Kessel Run and gave a peek at an intense Cantina fight scene, which fans first lapped up in the 1977's original Star Wars film.
Howard has been offering glimpses from the set of the spinoff since shortly after he replaced Phil Lord and Chris Miller in June. We've seen signs of the Galactic Empire, a close-up of Chewbacca, a burning R2 unit and a farewell to Lando Calrissian actor Donald Glover.
With news that Darth Vader will be appearing in this film, the Star Wars universe is heating up even further as Howard's movie nears completion with the recent return of J.J. Abrams to helm Episode IX.
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.
