New Solo: A Star Wars Story Photo Reveals Some Mandalorian Armor

With just over one month until Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters across the galaxy, many longtime fans of the franchise still have their fingers crossed that the film will feature cameo appearances from two characters intrinsically tied to Han Solo in the original trilogy: Jabba the Hutt and Boba Fett. However, while we still have no official confirmation that either character will show up in the latest Star Wars spinoff, a new photo certainly lends some credence to an appearance from the latter.

The image, which appears in an upcoming issue of Empire, features an up-close look at Paul Bettany's scar-faced villain Dryden Vos. Just off in the background, though, fans will undoubtedly notice a suit of Mandalorian armor being proudly displayed.

While the color scheme is a dead giveaway that this isn't actually Boba Fett's armor, it's still more than enough to fuel the speculative fire of those banking on an appearance from the enigmatic bounty hunter who's sadly knocked into the mouth of the sarlacc in the Great Pit of Carkoon in Return of the Jedi.

Based on a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Paul Bettany and Woody Harrelson. The film arrives May 25.
