The "Untitled Han Solo Movie" Now Has a Title


Solo: A Star Wars Story follows 2016's Rogue One as the second anthology film spinning off from the original franchise.

The film was been written by The Empire Strikes Back and The Force Awakens screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon Kasdan (The First Time).

Star Wars fans have taken to the internet to react to Howard's announcement, with many voicing their distaste for the simplistic title while a few pointed out that it could be worse.

Since it's so obvious, it just raises questions of why it took so long to reveal.

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" will hit the theaters on May 25, 2018. Woody Harrelson portrays Han's mentor, while "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke, "Westworld's" Thandie Newton, and "Fleabag's" Phoebe Waller-Bridge play undisclosed roles.

Man, who could have seen this one coming. Paul Bettany, Warwick Davis, and Howard's brother, Clint Howard, also appear in the film.

Of course, end of principal photography doesn't mean the end of production as a whole. Ron Howard has done a fantastic job promoting the film, with this fun revelation being no different.

Suitably unimpressed, fans have already begun offering their suggestions for a title.

The movie will be called "Solo: A Star Wars Story". Solo will explore some of the character's most character affirming events of Han's past, including how Han met his best friend, Chewbacca, and when he won the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian.
