Ron Howard has been tweeting from the set of the untitled Han Solo film again and this time he may have given us a glimpse into Chewie’s love life. The director posted a photo of new Chewbacca actor Joonas Suatamo checking a shot on the monitors.
The image has been enhanced (thanks to SWNN) and appears to show a pair of Wookiees embracing.
Could this be the first on screen appearance of Malla, Chewbacca’s wife, since the infamous Holiday Special? Will the film show how and why Chewbacca got separated from his family? The fact that Suatamo is watching the shot back implies that it is an important scene.
The now Ron Howard directed Untitled Han Solo film is still scheduled for release in May next year.
