Some very exciting images from the Han Solo movie production have surfaced on StarWarsNewsNet.com that show some interesting craft, some familiar faces and a potential first look at Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo. Needless to say, what follows is a little spoilery. Proceed with caution...
On the whole the images are exciting, although they reveal very little beyond the drawings of some craft from the movie. It would appear that there will be a Imperial presence in the movie as one image shows a craft with Stormtroopers on board. see below,
There is also an image that appears to show Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo. I say appears because there is plenty of room for this image to simply be a sketch, a rough approximation of the character, to be used for scale on some of the drawings. For example; one image shows Han standing next to a swoop bike, referred to as a Bumper Car in the drawings. See below.
This could be taken as an indication that Han will look very similar to the Han in Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, in terms of wardrobe at least, or it could simply be the safest way to represent Han without spoiling his appearance in leaks like this. It could also mean that Han rides a Swoop Bike in the movie.
There are also a number of really cool ship designs and a design for a potential location. We had heard the name Emlys Nest or Emly's Nest recently and the "swoop bike" with Han is referred to as a "Nest Bumper Car" in the drawings.
What do you think of the images? Do you think Han will start the film as a racer? Maybe racing these "bumper cars" for a living before becoming a smuggler? Is that location shot that leaked this week a race track? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
