In a leaked set photo from the upcoming Han Solo anthology, we have a dessert land with a collection of abandoned hut-like structures. The place has the look and feel of a junkyard, with old podracer engines and various other scrap laying around:
The set is located in Fuerteventura, the second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, and according to reports, it has heavily security measures.
Canarias7 claims this is the set of Corellia, the Home Planet of our favourite smuggler, mentioning the citizens of the world live in “damaged igloos and under the remains of ships”, but it seems more like a guess than anything else.
The official canon Corellia has a temperate climate with forests, jungles, and urban areas, while this set is a dessert, abandoned landscape. A more convincing theory is that what we are seeing in the photo could be Tatooine – the home planet of Anakin and Luke Skywalker.
Although it’s natural that fans want the saga to look beyond Tatooine, it’s logical for Lucasfilm to look that way. In A New Hope, it was obvious Han had history with the underworld of Tatooine, the Mos Eisley cantina, and doing jobs for Jabba the Hutt. Since the movie is supposed to cover Han’s life from ages 18-24 (meaning that ends few years before A New Hope), it makes sense that they’ll show us a scene or two of the smuggler on that planet, maybe revealing how Han crossed paths with Jabba.
While nothing is certain, we hope that the Lucasfilm panel at D23 will tell us new reveals and information, giving a clearer picture of what to expect of the film.
What do you think? Do you think this is Han’s home planet or Tatooine?

The film is set to be released in May of 2018.
