After much anticipation, the title for the upcoming young Han Solo movie has been revealed! And the title is… *drumroll*… Solo!
Well, to give it its full title, it’s actually Solo: A Star Wars Story. Given how the Star Wars Story tag was expected, and how the primary focus is on Han Solo, it wasn’t exactly rocket science to see this title coming. But still, at least it’s finally out of the bag and we no longer have to refer to the picture as 'the to-be-titled Han Solo project'.
The news was revealed by director Ron Howard, who took to social media to make the reveal:
Starring Hail, Caesar’s Alden Ehrenreich as the young Solo, the movie will also features Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Woodley Harrelson as Han’s mentor, and roles for Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Delving in to the tale of how Han Solo became the scruffy-looking nerf herder we first met in Mos Eisley back in 1977, Solo: A Star Wars Story is currently set for a May 25th, 2018 release.
