Director Ron Howard offers an Arrested Development style voiceover to Star Wars in a new fan mash-up.

The Arrested Rebellion clip, from the Nerdist podcasters, comes after Howard was named as the director of a new film about  Han Solo's 'origin story'.

The as yet untitled movie stars Alden Ehrenreich in the lead role, alongside Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover and Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
