The Star Wars universe's droids are every bit as iconic as its aliens, and director Ron Howard has not been shy on sharing any images from the set. Howard had posted an image of a new type of droid earlier, but now he's sharing to us a familiar model that we all know and love.

Here's the image:

No R2 unit has come out as iconic as R2-D2 in the franchise, but with all this focus on human and alien characters in Han Solo, I'm wondering if we're also going to get another droid companion. Fans loved Alan Tudyk's K-2SO from Rogue One, and everyone absolutely adores BB-8. It's only a matter of time before we get the obligatory droid character for Han Solo.


You would think the Han Solo movie was in trouble after the whole debacle with the directors, but with Ron Howard at the helm, it seems like everything is going pretty smoothly, and Han Solo may be able to reach its intended release date after all. Then again, some fans speculate that Howard has been asked by Disney to keep tweeting from the set so as to appease the fans about any worries that the production is in trouble.

I have to say, it's definitely working.

Han Solo: A Star Wars Story is coming out May 25, 2018.
