Events in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” are expected to mostly happen on the ground. However, Director Ron Howard teased a new picture of a space battle in the film.

The director and his team are currently busy finishing the visual effects at the ILM studios, putting the final touches. Howard shared a new picture (see below) from the editing room. It teases an action scene in space, mostly showing TIE fighters attacking. Is this from the same battle sequence from the trailer with tentacled space creatures?

The creatures in the trailer appear to be the same as those in the finale of “Star Wars Rebels.” However, fans may not get to see the Ghost crew because the upcoming movie is based a few years before the beginning of the rebellion against the Empire.

There are still plenty of good scenes to look forward to, especially for fans of the original movie trilogy. The movie will show a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando (Donald Glover) while introducing exciting new characters like Qi’Ra (Emilia Clarke).

Replying to a fan question, Howard has also confirmed that another full trailer is on the way. He, however, didn’t reveal when exactly the new video will be out.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” will be released on May 24 in Australia. This is the second spin-off film for the franchise, the first one “Rogue One.” Will Howard’s movie continue the tradition of delivering massive success?
