A selection of set photos showing vehicles and background performers and Alden Ehrenreich in costume as Han Solo have hit TMZ. Check out the full range of images there or click below for a few stand outs and some mild speculation...
The images appear to be showing Han at a pod race like event, we think might involve the "bumper cars" at Emly's Nest. Check out some of those images below.
Two images really stand out here. First is Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo -
Han looks like he has been through some trying experience here. Perhaps these bumper car races are pretty rough on the driver/pilots. looks like Han will be sporting a black shirt an grey vest in this movie. In fact we get a closer look in the next image.
So is this Han in his "bumper car"? I imagine these wheels will all be removed in post production living this amazing looking vehicles floating above the surface of the race track.
Its interesting, I'm pretty sure I heard recently that back in the days of prohibition, smugglers developed what we would now refer to as Hot Rods to help them out run the authorities when they ran their contraband across state lines. Could we be seeing a variation on this theme here? Maybe Han starts out as a "hot rodder" or at least the Star Wars version of that, and that helps him establish his reputation which leads to his being hired as a smuggler.
Whatever this is, it looks cool and thats enough for now.
