Being an actor or director for a legendary franchise such as Star Wars has its perks, especially when you get to reveal intriguing new details on upcoming Star Wars films. Twitter has been a mainstay for Ron Howard, where he has revived the interest in the upcoming (untitled) Han Solo film, with numerous posts putting our hearts at ease, after both (former) directors of the project Lord and Miller parted ways with the film’s directorial duties, while Colin Trevorrow was relieved of his role as director for Episode IX. 

This reveal is no different, where this time around we receive (official) confirmation that the homeworld of Han Solo will, in fact, be in the film:

Howard appears to have done his homework after a fan noticed this connection from the director’s Tweet:

Using un-used concept art has been a staple for Star Wars writers and directors for years, with Dave Filoni a prime example of that, where he goes back to where it all started using old Ralph McQuarrie concept art. Ron Howard is following in those footsteps as well.
