Solo: The Han Solo Star Wars Story gets a title!
Principal photography has officially wrapped on the Han Solo spin-off movie from Lucasfilm, and director Ron Howard has made a special video announcing the title of the film: Solo: A Star Wars Story! Simple and effective, no? Check out the full video announcement below (featuring a cameo from a certain Wookie), along with a closer look at the Solo logo in our gallery, and check out all of Howard’s photo tweets from production collected by the official Star Wars webpage by clicking here!
Solo: A Star Wars Story features Hail, Caesar‘s Alden Ehrenreich as Han, with Atlanta‘s Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and The Force Awakens‘ Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Woody Harrelson is playing Han’s mentor, a man by the name of Beckett, while Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, Westworld‘s Thandie Newton, and Fleabag‘s Phoebe Waller-Bridge are playing undisclosed roles.
In the wake of the departure of directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm hired director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code) to take their place. It is unknown how credit will be divided for the finished film, as at least 3/4s of it was already shot when Howard took over.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to be released on May 25, 2018. What do you think of the tease Ron Howard tweeted for the Han Solo film? Let us know in the comments.
