It didn’t take Ron Howard a long time to share another cool behind-the-scenes shot from the set of the Han Solo movie, because he’s just posted a new one showing what it looks like to film a hyperspace scene when a ship makes a jump to light speed.
From the shot it looks like this effect is practical in nature, and not computer generated, which is a pretty big revelation. I’m assuming this method allows for the light to reflect off of the set surfaces and actors to provide a more lifelike feel? It probably serves as a great tool for the actors to immerse themselves in the film’s sci-fi universe too.
Hyperspace is real. My first experience. Wow. pic.twitter.com/POilRi5ePX

In addition to the hyperspace wall you can also see another shot Young Lando piloting the Falcon in the monitors, and he looks a bit troubled or in a hurry. There’s a good chance he’s running from someone or something, so I can’t wait to see how this scene plays out in the final film.
Stay tuned for more Han Solo movie set updates because Ron Howard is on fire with them!
