'Star Wars': Han Solo Movie Title Revealed
The young Han Solo Star Wars spinoff finally has a name: Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Ron Howard is directing the movie and revealed the title via Twitter on Tuesday.
The Disney and Lucasfilm origin story stars Alden Ehrenreich as the iconic smuggler alongside Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton are also among the cast. Solo is Lucasfilm's second Star Wars stand-alone movie, following last year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Howard took over directing duties in June after filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller were let go due to creative differences over style and tone between the duo and Lawrence Kasdan, the veteran screenwriter who penned the script with his son Jon Kasdan. Howard has been teasing set pieces and character hints on Twitter for the past few months, and on Tuesday he thanked the cast and crew for their hard work as production wraps up.
