The Han Solo Movie Gets a Title
Today, director Ron Howard has officially revealed the title for the “Star Wars” Han Solo spinoff and it isn’t such a big surprise:
Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Howard also announced the end of production on the movie, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as a 20-something version of Harrison Ford’s infamous smuggler, Donald Glover in the role of his duplicitous frenemy Lando Calrissian and basketball player Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
The film deals with Han Solo and Chewbacca’s adventures years before the events of “Star Wars: A New Hope”. Check out the title reveal below:
