After a lengthy and eventful shoot (which started way back in January, saw the original directors removed, and a new one installed), the Han Solo Star Wars spin-off movie has finally finished filming. And it no longer goes by the snappy working title of Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Spin-off Movie. In a characteristic bit of social media engagement, director Ron Howard posted a video revealing the official title (with help from a wookiee pal) as Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The title is perhaps the second-least surprising name for a Star Warsstory centering around a character named Han Solo, but a proper title certainly makes things feel more official – while the 'Star Wars Story' element keeps it on brand with last year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film now dives headfirst into months of post-production, aiming towards a punchy May release date.
Alden Ehrenreich is starring as the title character, of course, leading up a cast that includes Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Solo: A Star Wars Story arrives in cinemas on 25 May, 2018.
