It was reported earlier this year that another classic Star Wars character might be making a return to the big screen in the Han Solo movie: That’s right, Darth Vader.
“A source close to the production has revealed to us that someone… was on the set of Howard’s Han Solo reshoots in Darth Vader’s armor as recently as two weeks ago.”
It's the second in an anthology of stand alone Star Wars movies. The first movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was released in December of 2016. The Guardian reported back in September that a third movie is set for 2020.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to be released on May 25, 2018.
