After months of waiting and speculating, Ron Howard announced that production on the film had wrapped and he delivered to us the title of his Han Solo spinoff film. And the title we’ve all been waiting for is…exactly what we all thought it would be.
Yes, the upcoming standalone is officially titled Solo: A Star Wars Story. The film will follow Han Solo and Chewbacca as they do some extreme teen adventures before joining the rebellion. Alden Ehrenreich will play Han Solo, Donald Glover will play Lando Calrissian, and their co-stars include Game of Thrones‘s Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany and Westworld‘s Thandie Newton.
Given the film’s shall we say minimalist title, Twitter has a few thoughts, because of course they do.
Many made the obvious connection.
But the studio beat them to it long ago. “Red Cup” has a deeper meaning–it’s what the film was called throughout pre-production.
But some heroes cut right to the chase and gave the people what we’re truly after.
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released in theaters on May 25, 2018. And your entire theater will attempt to smuggle in red cups. Porg: A Star Wars Story will presumably be released around 2020.
