The Star Wars spinoff starring Han Solo has finally wrapped production, and to celebrate, director Ron Howard has unveiled the official title!
The Star Wars spinoff is officially called… Solo: A Star Wars Story. Howard made the announcement in a video posted to Twitter on Tuesday morning. He found himself unveiling the news when he got tripped up in making his speech.
Solo was wrapping up production in June under the direction of Chris Lord and Phil Miller when Lucasfilm decided to switch directors. There was apparently a lot of clashing behind the scenes, and of course, Studio President Kathleen Kennedy won that battle.
Since then, Solo has been filming a lot of new material. Like Rogue One, Solo appears to have undergone extensive reshoots that will greatly change what was originally planned for the film.
Lucasfilm and Disney have been drumming up excitement following that shocker of a firing by letting Howard tweet a ton of great photos from set:
