That's no moon it's the new star of Ron Howard's Han Solo movie

Details on the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story's plot are now unknown, though the film will chronicle the adventures of the smuggler during his youth and will include his first meeting with Chewbacca and how he came to possess the Millennium Falcon.

Howard took over Han Solo directing duties on the film in June after creative differences led to the dismissal of previous directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

However, on Wednesday, Howard posted on his Twitter an image and a video from the Han Solo film.

Lucasfilm has clearly been prioritizing Rian Johnson's upcoming film, Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi, since that's the next movie on the docket, but the production company has yet to show an official photo from the Han Solo movie, which releases mere months after The Last Jedi hits theaters.

In January past year , a series of depreciations in the Chinese yuan sent shockwaves through the South Korean financial markets. Xi praised the arrangement, saying it will play a positive role in improving bilateral relations.

Director Ron Howard's latest photo from the set prominently features a Death Star trooper helmet, sitting atop what appears to be a control panel of the fully-armed-and-operational-battle-station sort. This has not been confirmed yet, though it will not come as a surprise should the planet destroyer end up in the movie.

Of course, since the Han Solo standalone film takes place before the original "Star Wars" trilogy, the Death Star would still be under construction at this point. Regardless, it looks like the Empire's threat is ever-present. That doesn't really tell us much about the timeline, since we already know from Alden Ehrenreich's casting about the age they're looking to explore in Solo's backstory in this movie.

Howard also previously offered a first look at young Lando Calrissian, played by Donald Glover. But his newest photo teases the appearance of at least one Imperial baddie. That is unless A Star Wars Story: The Untitled Han Solo film is what they've chose to stick with.
