Han Solo's standalone film titled 'Solo

Han Solo's standalone film titled 'Solo

Deep into the shoot directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller abruptly left the project and were replaced by Howard.

The film, which will star Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo, will be an origin story of the scruffy-looking Nerfherder and smuggler, who first appeared in the original "Star Wars" film.

As production officially wraps on the upcoming Star Wars Han Solo spin-off movie, director Ron Howard (Apollo 13, Rush) posted a short thirty second video on his Twitter account on the morning of October 17, revealing the official title for the film - Solo: A Stars Wars Story. What will happen in this film that will shape the Han Solo that we know and love? In the past, the Star Wars movie names that were given to us had more depth and creativity, while this time around, however, I believe they could have done much, much better and here's why.




"As we wrap up production I just want to take this moment to thank an incredibly talented cast and crew for their incredibly hard work", says Howard in the video.

The film will likely include Lando Calrissian (played by Donald Glover), Solo's smuggling friend. Lord and Miller had a falling out with Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy and co-writer/executive producer Lawrence Kasdan. Compared to other Star Wars films in the past, this is a bit of a letdown.
