We may have our first real look at the new Han Solo film.

An international poster for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” leaked online this week. The image was first discovered on a Russian licensing website.

The image shows Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich), standing in the foreground next to Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) with the rumored character Kira (Emilia Clarke) in the background. Chewbacca stands next to Solo, with his hand on Solo's shoulder as a soaring Millennium Falcon appears to have just zoomed past.

"Solo is an exciting story about intergalactic adventures, telling the adventures of young Han Solo, about how he got into difficult situations and found an outlet from them, as he became the same a smuggler, a rebel, a bully, a hero, whom we all know and love," the website reads.

A Disney source told The Blast that the photo “is not legit.”

This is the first image we’ve received of the new Star Wars film since director Ron Howard shared a cast photo of the project back in February of this year, according to the Deseret News.

It’s unclear what the new film will be about. As Uproxx reported, the film suffered from some creative differences after director Christopher Miller left the film. Howard eventually took over and reshot plenty of scenes.

“I think he went in and he was like a laser, working out what needed to be done when he looked at the footage,” "Solo: A Star Wars" actor Paul Bettany told Total Film. “And then, as things moved on, everybody felt so secure with him. And they gave him more. He reshot a lot more than was originally intended.”
