Ron Howard Reveals the Han Solo Movie Title as…Solo: A Star Wars Story

The renowned director, a late replacement for original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, revealed the title on Twitter in the aftermath of wrapping production. After a tumultuous filming process for the Han Solo film and creative differences between Lucasfilm and Lord and Miller, Howard stepped into the role in June.

Ehhh???

As you would expect of a title so…uninspired, the reaction has been lukewarm at best. I can’t blame them. I only needed five minutes in a Reddit thread to find half a dozen titles better. I guess matching something with “a Star Wars Story” part makes things harder. Still, really? Though I suppose they could have named it Screw You It’s a Han Solo Movie: A Star Wars Story and not lost a single potential moviegoer.

Hopefully, the actual film makes up for that title, or they will at least go back and reconsider. For real, Lucasfilms, that’s just plain terrible.

Solo (ugh) will show us a young Han Solo during his smuggler movies. The movie will show the early days of his adventures with his Wookie life partner Chewbacca and also Lando Calrissian (played by Donald Glover, one of the few encouraging things to come out of this movie’s production so far).

The film is scheduled to release on May 25, 2018. Alden Ehrenreich will step into Harrison Ford’s massive shoes. Woody Harrelson also stars as Beckett, Han’s mentor, with Donald Glover cast as the young Lando Calrissian. Game of Thrones Emilia Clarke will feature as well.
