    In typical Ron Howard fashion, the director of the upcoming Han Solo movie has recently shared a couple more tweets, giving fans a brief and unrevealing glimpse at Pinewood studios and another that is a little more interesting, revealing a familiar Imperial helmet.





    August 17, 2017



    Here's the brief video he shared behind the scenes at Pinewood:








    And now the helmet:








    At first glance, I recognized it for its similarity to the Imperial Gunner/Engineer helmet:

    But after looking at it more closely, it definitely shares more of a resemblance with the Imperial Navy Fleet Trooper Helmet as seen throughout the OT, and it may even be identical, though it's hard to tell from just the one profile view:

    It's also possible that it is a new design blending the open-faced style of the fleet trooper helmet with the more aerodynamic design of the Imperial gunner helmet. The set is very similar to the scene shown above, so I suspect the helmet will most likely belong to a trooper in the background at an Imperial installation or stationed on a starship.



    Stay tuned to Star Wars News Net as we will continue to keep you updated on the upcoming Han Solo movie.







    UPDATE!

    And here's yet another tweet from Howard, this time with the good old Chewie:








    Obviously it's a shot at Chewie between the takes, since you can see some cast members or extras having fun on the set.

    UPDATE 2!



    August 19, 2017



    And two more videos from the set. It seems like they are filming in some kind of junkyard. Could this be the interior to these photos we shared with you a few months ago?

    Well, Solo did say "I've outrun Imperial starships, not the local bulk-cruisers, mind you. I'm talking about the big Corellian ships now.", so perhaps we're gonna see that happen.
