Fans are starting to see more glimpses of director Ron Howard's Star Wars spinoff thanks to Disney and Lucasfilm's marketing push for the film.

The expectations are high for Donald Glover's performance as the young Lando Calrissian, the former captain of the Millennium Falcon in Solo: A Star Wars Story. To get fans more hyped, Ron Howard revealed a new photo of Glover in the cockpit of the famous starship.


As Howard noted in the post, the photo comes from an effects review so we can't really tell for sure if the Falcon is just parked or going light speed.

Glover recently told The Star Wars Show that being a fan of Lando helped his performance.


Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in "Solo: AStar WarsStory," an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of theStar Warssaga's most unlikely heroes.

The film also stars Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25.
