Ron Howard Teases Familiar Empire Presence For HAN SOLO

I certainly have, and it looks like Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (or whatever they eventually call it) is going to answer my questions.

That helmet balanced on the console belongs to an Imperial Navy Trooper, who were seen in the original Star Wars trilogy and Rogue One on the Empire's starships either working behind consoles or handling security.

Since June, when he started directing the Han Solo movie, Ron "Opie-Wan Kenobi" Howard has been tempting the fans of the Star Wars saga with his tweets. Perhaps this was something of a preview, a Death Star model.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" will release in December with John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Gwendoline Christie, Dohmnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Andy Serkis and the late Carrie Fisher reprising their roles.

New England Patriots fear Derek Rivers out for season with injury
Rivers returned to New England to conduct an MRI yesterday, when the tests revealed the extent of the season-ending injury. Also, fellow rookie Deatrich Wise suffered a concussion in the first preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars .

As the movie is set many years before the Death Star was finished, it wouldn't make much sense for it to feature in the upcoming prequel.

Who knows, maybe part of the Han Solo movie involves Han and Co. having to sneak aboard a Star Destroyer to carry out a mission. According to Screen Rant, the director previously shared photos of the Lando Calrissian, played by Donald Glover, and Solo's iconic vehicle the Millennium Falcon travelling through hyperspace.

Indeed, based on what we know of the Han Solo film, it seems unlikely that the Death Star's even been completed by that point.
