Filming has wrapped on the fraught production of Lucasfilm‘s Han Solo spinoff movie, which saw Phil Lord and Chris Miller packing up their things and leave during shooting. Ron Howard came in, bringing a veteran, reassuring hand behind the camera, and a pleasant and engaging social media presence. Now, he’s heading into post-production with one more message.
The director hit Twitter today and revealed the official title of the movie, which is the fairly bland, “Solo: A Star Wars Story“:
It’s simple, effective, dull, and certain to start many memes (or as safesolvent suggested “Yolo: A Star Wars Story,” amirite?). Anyway, in case you forgot, the movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, and will explore Han and Chewie’s adventures before the events of “Star Wars: A New Hope,” including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.
Well, at least that’s what the logline was before the whole Lord/Miller fiasco, so who knows.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens on May 25, 2018.
