A lot has been made of the behind the scenes struggles Solo has had, with original directors Lord and Miller getting the boot, and Ron Howard seemingly filming signifcantly more than intended (his few weeks of announced filming stretched to nearly 3 months). Fortunately, Howard has been giving fans regular glimpses at the film in progress, teasing new locations and characters, while ensuring fans things were on track.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is slated to arrive on May 25, 2018.
