Progress continues on the new ‘Star Wars‘ Han Solo spin-off movie, with director Ron Howard sharing a photo of a new R2 unit, as well as news of a special cameo.
Now, Ehrenreich’s work is said to have improved greatly under Howard, as production steams ahead at a healthy pace. To the excitement of fans, Howard has shared a photo of a robot that looks like R2-D2, but with gold plating instead of the robot character’s blue bodywork – suggesting that there’s a role for a new R2 unit in the upcoming movie.
Not only that, but when asked if the film would feature a cameo from Howard’s brother Clint (who has made a cameo in almost all of his films) the director replied “you won’t be disappointed”.
The movie is scheduled for a May 25, 2018 release.
