“Well as we wrap up production, I just want to take this moment to thank an incredibly talented cast and crew for all their hard work,” Howard shared on the clip. “And to the fans out there I hope you have enjoyed the pictures that I have been sharing, pictures that I’ve taken from the set … ‘
At that moment, he looks off camera and asks if he can say the name of the movie, before being handed the title by a wookie, which read, “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
As he mentioned several other pictures taken from the set have been shared on his social media account.
