    After hinting that the planet Kessel will be included in the still untitled Han Solo movie a few weeks ago, now director Ron Howard directly confirmed on Twitter that Han Solo's home planet of Corellia will also be featured in the movie.

    Of course this comes as no surprise to anyone since Kessel, Corellia and Tatooine are the three planets with which we've always connected the character of Han Solo, based on what we know about him. Still, Howard's latest tweet gives us a good idea at a specific location on Corellia where the action will take place.

    Fans on Twitter quicky spotted the similarities with one of the concept arts for the cancelled Star Wars 1313 game:

    This junkyard feel matches with the set photos from the filming at Fuerteventura that we posted here. But anything is possible since the photos from the Kessel mines had a similar vibe.


    Still, keep in mind that in the new canon Corellia is described to have a temperate climate with the primary terrain being forests, jungles and urban.

    And here's everything we know about Corellia in the new canon according to Wookieepedia:

    Also Howard shared a new photo with some action taking place aboard the Millennium Falcon:

    And in case you were wondering what means of transportaion the director is using at Pinewood Studios here's your answer:
