In addition to (finally) premiering the first trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm is revealing all kinds of cool new details from the upcoming prequel / spinoff. Over the past week we’ve seen new images and posters, and learned quite a bit about the mysterious characters played by Emilia Clarke and Paul Bettany. With only a few months left until Solo hits theaters, a casting announcement is probably the last thing you’d expect.
Solo. That’s the title of the upcoming Star Wars Story spinoff that follows the adventures of a young Han Solo, played by Alden Ehrenreich. After months of speculation, a change in directors, and reshoots, Ron Howard finally revealed the official title of the project — formerly operating under the working title “Red Cup” — on his Twitter account today in a special message to fans.
