Ron Howard Reveals Title for ‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff (Video)

The film hits theaters May 25, 2018

Ron Howard has revealed the title of the “Star Wars” Han solo spinoff: “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

In a video posted on Twitter Tuesday, the director said the film had wrapped production and that he had a special message for “Star Wars” fans.

Howard stepped in to direct Disney’s untitled Han Solo movie in August, just two days after Phil Lord and Chris Miller were let go from the “Star Wars” spinoff. The directors had been at the wheel of the film, starring Alden Ehrenreich in the role that Harrison Ford made famous, for nearly two years.

It will star Ehrenrich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson and Paul Bettany.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” is set for release on May 25, 2018. For fans that don’t want to wait until next year, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is hitting theaters this December.
