Ron Howard Reveals the Interior of a Certain Smuggler’s Speeder in the Han Solo Film!

Han Solo director Ron Howard continues to tease us with small glimpses from the set, this time revealing the cool interior design of the vehicle that Solo will drive in the movie. While the photo hasn’t been titled in any way to suggest that this is Solo’s speeder, there are multiple clues that prove it.






Here’s Howard’s new tweet:





The biggest clue that hints at this being Solo behind the wheel are of course the gloves. Han used them several times during the original trilogy.




Also you immediately recognize these stripes (once known as bloodstripes in Legends) on the side of the pants. It seems that these pants have been through a lot in the new movie though.




Now about the speeder itself. A few months ago, during the filming at Fawley Power Station we’ve seen several speeders in what appeared to be a chase scene at an Imperial looking compound.



In the photo above you can see Alden Ehrenreich’s stunt double wearing the famous Han Solo gloves and driving the speeder followed by two other speeders, one of which was driven by a Stormtrooper and bearing the Imperial insignia.


In closer photos you can easily spot the specific steering wheel of the speeder:




In some of the shots they used a normal round wheel with added green tape that can be easily removed later in post production. It’s likely a full wheel because the stunt driver needed it for certain turning/steering maneuvers:




So what do you think? Do you like Han’s speeder? Is it Star Wars-ey enough for you? We personally hope that these pants are not the same Han wears in A New Hope.

    Loving Han’s dirty stone-washed jeans.

    Digging Han Solo’s stone-washed-jeans too.

    Fairly certain that thing’s got an 8-track player.

      With a copy of “Frampton Comes Alive” in it…

    At first I thought that was a steering wheel from any Earth car.

      Oh man, that’s a great shot.

        The red phone is cannon, and is manned by Pablo Hidalgo.

      Nuh-nuh nuh-nuh nuh-nuh nuh-nuh – Han Man!

    I see Han Solo hasn’t changed pants in years! (eyeroll)

    Also does anyone else find it strange that we haven’t gotten an official look of Alden as Han yet and this movie is less than a year away?

      I feel for sure we’ll get an Han reveal with a movie teaser clip as opposed to just a photo – it will help sceptics ( like me ) buy Ehrenreich as Solo if we see him in motion, where his acting and mannerism may help sell him as Han.

        When do you think we will even get a teaser for this movie that is supposed to hit theaters in 8(!) months

        • September 11, 2017 at 11:43 pm

          I wouldn’t be surprised if they push the movie back to Xmas 2018.

          • September 12, 2017 at 12:23 am

            You would think they would have announced that by now though no?

        • September 12, 2017 at 10:10 am

          Maybe, we will get the first trailer in Cinema, while waiting for EP VIII to start? =)

          • September 12, 2017 at 3:35 pm

            Maybe! But I would probably bet against it.

        • September 13, 2017 at 11:34 pm

          8 months?….. I’m still betting on a December 2018 release for this one.

          • September 14, 2017 at 5:46 pm

            Pablo recently tweeted that it won’t be delayed. We are going to be getting two Star Wars movies in the span of 6 months. Exciting!

      He is anti-capitalist.

      AldenHan’s reveal is their big money-shot. Disney won’t be blowing that load this early in the marketing campaign.

      • September 12, 2017 at 8:45 pm

        I mean the movie comes out in 8 months, not even a picture?
