Yesterday was that annoying day of the year when the office joker goes around saying, “May the fourth be with you!” like you haven’t heard that gag a zillion times before. But there was also a bit of Star Wars–related activity online to make it worthwhile, including Han Solo: A Star Wars Story director Chris Miller Tweeting the following tease, featuring Han Solo’s signature DL-44 heavy blaster pistol.

The film is currently scheduled for a May 2018 release. There hasn’t been an official announcement yet about who’ll be playing the young Han Solo (though there have been rumours – see here) but apparently the movie will take place between Episodes III and IV and it will feature Chewbacca. With Star Wars Celebration Europe just a couple of months away, expect first real details for the film there.
