The Han Solo spin-off of’ ‘Star Wars’ has finally been titled ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’. Director Ron Howard announced the news in a video on Twitter, reports variety.com. “Hey Twitterville, we just wrapped production so here’s a special message #StarWars,” Howard posted on Tuesday.

He said in the video, “Production on the standalone Han Solo movie is wrapping up and it now has a title – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’.” The film follows the young Han Solo – a 20-something version of actor Harrison Ford’s character – and Chewbacca’s adventures before joining the Rebellion, including their encounters with Lando Calrissian.

Howard took over as director in August after the movie’s original helmers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, were fired. Lord and Miller had a falling out with Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy and co-writer/executive producer Lawrence Kasdan.

The movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as the protagonist, Donald Glover as Calrissian, and basketball player Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Woody Harrelson will portray Han’s mentor, while Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge play undisclosed roles. Paul Bettany, Warwick Davis, and Howard’s brother, Clint Howard, will also appear in the film.

The last star wars film was ‘Rogue One:A Star Wars Story’ starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen and others. It was helmed by director Gareth Edwards while the screenplay was given by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy. ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ is slated to release in May 2018.
