It's looking more and more like smuggling will play a large role in the upcoming Han Solo Movie. While this may be of no surprise to fans of the character, it is exciting to know we will see Han doing what he does best, and potenitally how he built his reputation as a famous smuggler.
In the latest teased photo from Ron Howard, we see an image on screen of the Millennium Falcons interior hallway and a shadowy character with blaster in hand. This scene likely shows Hans ship being boarded during a smuggling run. I'm reminded of the line "...even i get boarded sometimes"
We do know from sources that Jabba the Hutt will appear in the film, so it could be that we'll see the events that lead to Han ditch a load of cargo he was carrying for Jabba, why he had a bounty placed on his head, and setting up the events in the Original trilogy.
The only question is will we also see Bounty Hunters, and specifically Boba Fett? The canned Josh Trank Star Wars Story was rumored to be a Boba Fett/ Han SOlo Story, so potentially Lucasfilm has recycled story elements. We'll have to wait until May 2019 to see

Ron Howard has released another teaser image via hi Twitter account from the set of the Untitled Han Solo, Star Wars Story film.
Described in the tweet as “Spicey?” The picture appears to show a the inside of a ship, potentially the cargo bay, or the hidden compartment on the Millennium falcon. Clearly it indicates that we’ll see the start of Han Solo’s career as a smuggler, but what isn't so clear is the context. It's been suggested by some that the tweet could mean we’ll see how the Millennium Falcon made the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs. While this is possible, until we know more about Donald Glovers, Lando Calrissian's involvement we are not sure at what point Han will actually take possession of the Millennium Falcon.
