STAR WARS NEWS: Lucasfilm Announces the Title of Han Solo Film

By Muuka Muyumba

Lucasfilm trotted out Oscar-winning director Ron Howard today on Twitter to announce the completion of principal photography on the Han Solo origin film, but snuck in an official title while they were at it.

The film will be title Solo: A Star Wars Story and is still scheduled to hit theaters on May 5, 2018. Solo was originally to be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller but they were fired back in July 2017 and Howard jumped aboard to help his friend, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, complete the movie. Howard has been posting copious amounts of behind-the-scenes photos from the set which has kept fanboys and girls’ interest piqued.
